A semi-finalist in the 2018 editions of Cowbellpedia Secondary Schools Mathematics TV Quiz Show, Master Emmanuel Chidiebube Igban has emerged the second-best candidate in this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME).

According to the results just released by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), 16-year-old Emmanuel scored 346 out of a maximum of 400 in the nationwide examination. His result is just one point behind the best overall recorded by Franklin Ekene.

Emmanuel represented Ambassador College, Ota, Ogun State at the Cowbellpedia Mathematics competition at the junior category as a 13-year-old in 2016 and returned in 2018 to compete in the senior category.

That second attempt, he got to the final stage where he was outwitted by Juliet Ekoko and Enoch Adelekan, both of the same Ambassadors College.
