Highest JAMB Score 2023 & Top Scores in Nigerian History

I am sure you are curious to know the best student and highest JAMB score in the 2023 exam.

Millions of candidates sit for this exam yearly, but only a few emerge as the best. Gaining admission does not have anything to do with having the best JAMB result in the country.

Even though there was a massive failure in JAMB 2023, many candidates passed excellently.

Who has the highest JAMB score in 2023?

The highest 2023 Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) exam score has not been recorded.

As you can see, the table below shows the scores recorded by the board in the past five years.

What is the highest score in JAMB history?

In 2016, Nigeria’s highest score in the history of JAMB exams was recorded. The record-breaker was Shamwifu Ibrahim, an indigene of Kogi state, and he scored 399 over 400 in JAMB.

To date, that record has not been broken. In Nigerian history, no candidate scored 400/400 in the exam.

Kindly note that JAMB does not release the list of the lowest scorers in the exam. However, in 2021, I saw many terrible scores like 60, 24, 14, etc.

Is the JAMB examination hard?

Let me be sincere. It won’t be easy if you don’t prepare for the exam. JAMB is not just something you can pass without studying. It is not your ordinary level exams where you pay for expo/runz.

The exam will be easy if you have studied and prepared well. I am sure you got motivated reading this article. Share it with our friends. Sharing is caring.

You can even take this up as a challenge, decide to smash JAMB CBT, and become the top scorer. Trust me, it has many benefits.

Good luck!
