A young Nigerian man has been captured on tape celebrating after he passed his Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board exams with flying colours.
JAMB released the results of the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) on May 2 and the lucky student scored 270.
It was gathered that he has written the tertiary entrance exam for four time and during his fifth trial, he passed the general cut off mark of 140.
Residents trooped out to the street to break into celebratory moves and cheers after the guy revealed what his JAMB score is.
A video circulating on social media shows people congratulating him with handshakes and pat on the back. He looked overly excited and paced back and forth.
According to the person who filmed the scene; “He scored 270 on this JAMB exam after repeating for the 5th time. I’m very happy for him, you see in life never give up.”

Meanwhile, a young girl earlier broke down in tears after checking her JAMB results and seeing a score she felt was poor.
The student was totally devastated when she saw that she scored 250 in the tertiary entrance examination.
In a video which trended on social media platforms, she could be seen wailing and expressing disappointment in herself.
A friend who was standing close to her tried to console the girl but it seemed to trigger her even more.
JAMB’s Head, Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin in a statement on Tuesday, said a total of 1,595,779 candidates had registered to take the examination in 708 Computer Based Test (CBT) centres in 105 examination towns in the country.
He said the results excluded candidates who were rescheduled to take their examination on Saturday, May 6 and those who were absent.
Benjamin also listed other excluded candidates as those under investigation as well as those of visually impaired candidates, saying their results were undergoing processing.
