The proactive mother revealed that she chose to take the exam as well in order to compete for the highest JAMB score and motivate her son to study more.
Michelle announced on Facebook that she took the exam on Tuesday, May 10, after more than a decade of studying.
She talked about the sacrifices and stress she went through while studying for the exam while still running her business, and how it paid off.
JAMB results were released over the weekend and both mother and son aced the exams. Her son, Precious scored 243 while she scored 230.
Taking to Facebook on Wednesday, May 11, Michelle wrote,
“I wrote JAMB yesterday!
Oh yes! After many years of graduation.
My JAMB examination challenge ended yesterday. I didn’t want to discuss it until I accomplish it
It was a challenge with a son of mine. I was tired of teaching, instructing and advising on the need for study time creation.
Boom! I decided to register for JAMB in order to compete with his score line Funnily, it made the young man to sit up when he saw me reading, browsing for points and sharing ideas with him
As an art student, I had to make efforts to study the latest recommended African/non African literary – novels, plays, poems etc from 2022 – 2025. I must confess, it wasn’t easy. But it was worth it
Right now, everyone is waiting for JAMB results to be released so that the challenge will be completed. I pray we both cross the margin line successfully because there is a reward attached to the highest JAMB score
I pray he scores higher than me
Subsequently, I will be updating you with stories of my JAMB examination experience. From my fellow JAMB students to my personal experience.
To be continued !!
All we do God knows!”
She gave an update on Monday, May 16, where she revealed that her son won the competition.

Son of man
I am very happy that he won the challenge joor. He scored 243! How could he have explained to his children that their grandma scored higher than him in JAMB! At least the challenge pushed him into studying harder.
But me self try. 230 aggregate after leaving school for more than a decade. I did not also go for JAMB lesson. I was hustling up and down the country. I was just informed of the exam date and boom, U show for exam hall
Congratulations to me too
Make una show me live too. E no easy!
For those of you that predicted his higher score than me, DM me for meeting because na una be the real village people
In all, I appreciate everyone who supported and commended my efforts. There is really no fixed pattern to training children ”
