JAMB candidate who repeated JSS2 scores 319

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a Nigerian boy with dyslexia had scored 319 in the UTME.

The boy worried his people as he was not performing well in school, in addition to his learning disorder.

@HUNeeyB explained that her relative's situation was so severe that he always came in the last three positions in class each term and repeated JSS2. This made @HUNeeyB's aunt pray to God about the boy's situation, and a miracle happened.
