Meet Agnes, The Girl With UTME 2020’s Highest Score

Indeed, genius often comes in incredible packages. At first glance, Miss Egoaguagwu Agnes Maduafokwa, who is an indigene of Ihiala in Anambra State may not strike any unusual chord, but the fact remains that she holds the highest JAMB Score with a total of 365 out of 400 in Nigeria.

Although she had prepared well for the exam, Agnes had taken her UTME on March 14th 2020 at St Michael Otedola Education Centre, in Epe, Lagos State, without expecting anything out of the ordinary.

However, to her delight, she had come out tops in overall national performance.

She is the President of her school’s Maths Club, and the 1st Assistant Head Girl of Louisville Girls High School, Ijebu-Itele, in Ogun State.


She intends to study Engineering, where she can apply mathematical concepts in solving societal challenges.

A breakdown of her JAMB result is as follows:


Use of English 72
Mathematics 99
Physics 99
Chemistry 95

It is her parent’s hope that the State or Federal Government can step in to assist in the furtherance of the brilliant child’s education through a scholarship grant, as she will one day become an invaluable asset to the nation.
