She scored 83 in Biology, 96 in Chemistry, 95 in Physics and 65 in English.
The JAMB examination is a standardized test that determines the eligibility of candidates for admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
It covers four subjects chosen by the candidates based on their intended course of study.
Julius said she hopes to study medicine and surgery at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka.
Akporido Favour Julius is one of the thousands of candidates who sat for the JAMB exam this year.
According to the JAMB website, the examination was conducted peacefully at various computer-based test centres across the country.
A huge achievement
It also gives the candidate a competitive edge over other applicants who may have lower scores.
Therefore, scoring over 300 in JAMB means that the candidate has met and exceeded the minimum requirement for admission into any tertiary institution in Nigeria which is 140 and above.
It also means that the candidate has a higher chance of getting admitted into his or her preferred institution and course of study.
Having 339 in JAMB is not an easy feat. It requires a lot of hard work, dedication, discipline and practice.
