• Overcome Your Fear
One of the main reasons why students fail their UTME/JAMB exams is because of FEAR! They’re not really afraid of the exam itself, what they are actually afraid of is FAILURE!!.They’re afraid of the consequences that awaits them if they fail they exam.
As a student , if you really want to pass the UTME/JAMB exam , then you must overcome your fear!!. Look at the UTME/JAMB exam as a roadblock between you and 10 million Naira, remove that entity of fear in you and push that roadblock out of your way to glory!!
• Study Everyday
Researches has shown that 60% of Nigerian students don’t read , which has been one of the major reasons why the Nigerian education sector has continued to dwindle.
The brain can give out information ONLY when you input data in it , so the more you read the more knowledge you get and that improves your chances of passing an exam. As a student , study hard and prepare well for your exam. Forget all the luxuries and focus more on inputting data into your brain!. Spend at least 4 hours of your day reading , read according to JAMB’s syllabus and focus more on areas where questions are most likely to come from.
• Answer Past Questions
Get past questions of the previous years and try to answer them. Get familiar with their question asking pattern. Every past question has a 3/5 chance of been repeated. Doing this will help you a lot.
• Work More On Your Question Answering Speed
You don’t have all day to answer a question!. Jamb gives you limited time to answer a question , therefore , it is essential for you to work on your question answering speed. On average you have about 60 seconds to spend on a question. Spending more than 60 seconds would slow you down and leave you lagging behind. Don’t delay yourself on a question , if you didn’t get the answer to a question , skip it and move on to the next question. You can always go back to the ones you didnt do.
• Picking The Right Answer
This is where students fall into jamb’s trap. The UTME/JAMB exam is one of the most Tactical exams in Nigeria. Its is very tactical but yet easy. The answers are somehow look a-likes. You have four options A B C D , and out of those 4 A And B looks Correct. The real answer is staring at you but you’re too blind to see it!. What do you do in this kind of situation?
If you’ve really prepared (read a lot) then it becomes easy for you. In this kind of situation , the first thing to do is to eliminate!! Eliminate the incorrect answers and leave your self with the ones that are most likely to be correct. After that , look carefully at the options once more and try to relate them to the question that was asked. You would definitely find one that corresponds to your question , pick that one as your answer!
