The mother came second with an aggregate score of 230 but said she was also hustling while studying for the examination.
She wrote on her Facebook wall:
"I wrote JAMB yesterday! Oh yes! After many years of graduation. My JAMB examination challenge ended yesterday. I didn't want to discuss it until I accomplish it. It was a challenge with a son of mine. I was tired of teaching, instructing and advising on the need for study time creation.
"I am very happy that he won the challenge joor. He scored 243! How could he have explained to his children that their grandma scored higher than him in JAMB! At least the challenge pushed him into studying harder.
"But me self try. 230 aggregate after leaving school for more than a decade. I did not also go for JAMB lesson. I was hustling up and down the country. I was just informed of the exam date and boom, you show for exam hall."
