WHY DO SCIENCE STUDENTS SCORE HIGHER THAN ART STUDENTS IN UTME?

In 2018, about 1.8 million candidates sat for the UTME. Sequel to the release of the results, JAMB released the top ten highest scorers.
My observation was that all the top ten and even top 20 highest scorers were science students. It got me wondering why only science students top the chart yearly. You may think it’s because art students are dull but there are also very serious and intelligent art students.
Does that mean out of the almost one million art candidates that sit yearly for UTME, it’s impossible to find someone scoring at least 320? In fact, the highest score I’ve seen from an art student so far is 303. I’ve never seen or heard of someone claiming they have seen higher than that.
What could be the reason?
