Devastated Nigerian Student Misses UTME Exam Due to Mistaken Exam Centre Visit (Video)



JAMB on fake websites for UTME

A heartbreaking video has gone viral on TikTok, showing a Nigerian student, @big_bombay3, sharing his distressing experience of missing the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) due to a devastating mistake over the venue.

In the six-minute video, the student recounted how he mistakenly visited the wrong exam centre, Comprehensive Academy, instead of the designated Comprehensive High School, Aiyetoro, Ogun State, on Friday, April 19. By the time he realized his error, it was too late, and despite arriving at the correct location later, he was denied entry due to lateness.

The student’s emotional appeal for assistance has resonated with many, flooding the comment section with suggestions and support. Many have urged him to reach out directly to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to resolve the issue.

This unfortunate incident highlights the importance of double-checking exam details and the need for a more compassionate approach to handling such mistakes. As the student’s future hangs in the balance, we hope for a swift resolution and a second chance for him to write his exam.
