Alex Onyia, the Chief Executive Officer of Educare, an education technology platform, shared the remarkable achievement of his platform in the just-concluded 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). On his Twitter handle @winexviv, Onyia announced that his platform’s investment had resulted in none of the students scoring below 200 in their JAMB exams, with some even surpassing the 300 mark.

He highlighted the case of his cousin who improved from a score of 187 in the previous year to 243 this year, stating, “The investment has truly paid off, and for this, I am immensely grateful. Praising Jesus Christ for the remarkable outcomes, I’m thrilled to report that from the results collated so far, none of the students scored below 200 in their JAMB.”

Many students achieved scores over 250, with a few surpassing 300. Onyia expressed his plans to capitalize on this success by having these high-scoring students mentor the upcoming batch, passing on their knowledge and strategies.

Previously, 77 percent of candidates scored below 200 in the 2024 UTME. Onyia recalled that in October 2023, he tweeted about the poor performance of his “village youngsters” in the 2022 UTME, with over 70 percent failing the examination.

To change this narrative, the students engaged in intensive morning and evening drilling to better their results for the 2024 UTME.

They also took monthly Computer-Based Tests with a large pool of 16 years of past questions across different subjects. Onyia lamented the students’ low familiarity with computers and emphasized the need for them to become proficient to succeed in the examination.

Scholarship opportunities would be available to those who scored 300 and above, and Educare would cover the examination fees for all students. Onyia expressed his mission for all students to score above 250 and reiterated the platform’s commitment to supporting their education.
