For their exemplary performance during the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), organised by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), SuccessBOX, an online test and examination preparation platform, has given N2m cash prize to six outstanding subscribers of the application who performed excellently in the examination.

The event, Mega Excellence Award & Conference, which held in Lagos last week, also featured recognition and award presentation to key leaders and excellent administrators in the education sector.

While two SuccessBox users, Ajibade Ibrahim and Adigun Joshua, who scored 343 in the last UTME received cash prize of N500, 000 each; the other four candidates Babajide Salem (320), Vivian Iloha (316), John Ogabor 295 and Princess Ikeriehi (280) received N250, 000 each.

The award recipients are subscribers of the Successbox Application. The app is an online test platform where students from all over Nigeria and beyond can prepare and test their knowledge with over 50,000 past questions and answers. The initiative is the brainchild of Chronicles Software Development Company (Chroniclesoft).

Chief Executive Officer of Chroniclesoft, Mr. Oluwakoyejo Oluwatosin, said the overall objective of the firm is to empower over one million JAMB candidates with a robust testing platform to enable them prepare and achieve excellence in UTME, WASSCE and NECO.

So far, he said the company is heading in the right direction, as the number of subscribers continues to grow in the recently upgraded robust online test platform.

“The app offers students a platform to practice seamlessly for JAMB and WAEC. Its features include instant scoring mechanism, random question generation, 15 years or more past question bank and post-test performance review among others.”

Chief Executive Officer of Infrographics Limited and Chairman, Chronicles Advisory Board, Mr. Chinenye Mba-Uzokwu, in his keynote address, lamented the enormous challenge confronting education sector from basic to tertiary, urging the students to work hard and achieve their goals.

The panellists, Mr. Johnson Abbaly, President, Change League International; Executive Director of Dansol Christian Mission, Mrs. Omotara Olanitori; Principal Bless Secondary Schools Otta, Mrs. Tinuade Olufowobi and CEO, Team Masters Limited, Mr. Rotimi Iyitayo, in their respective remarks deplored the state of the nation’s education sector, calling for a total overhauling of the system.
