As a Jambite, you need to know these hints before going to sit for a jamb exam.
The Universal (unified) Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) is coming soon, and all candidates should note that while preparing for the forth coming examination, “don’t place much hope on your brilliance while tackling the questions, saying that smartness and timeliness in answering questions within the limited time count”.
One thing which i know for certain, is that Passing the JAMB UTME examination is not all about how brilliant you are, but how smart you are to answer those questions within the limited time you’re given, this is the definition of smartness”.

The truth is that the Computer base test (CTB) has lots of advantage over the paper- pencil test. If students can use their phones to browse and perform other functions, they can also successfully do the computer based test exams. CTB is able to give you correct result without error. It is a way of making students to be ICT compliance.
Why do people fail in Exams? i have pondered this question in my head over and over again without having going anyway, passing examination is not a jinx, all you need to do is just to follow basics.
So from today, as you study for your up coming examinations, start whispering sweet things to your self, network with sound minded people who also share your goals and belief.
Tip 2 to Succeeding in Exams
Never get intimidated by what other are studying or reading. Very funny right? My first experience as a JAMB candidate was very intimidating. I once entered a JAMB class thinking I have read enough only to discover that I was still a learner.
The questions two girls were throwing at on another made me wonder if it was
the same JAMB I was about to write. If not for God, I was already imagining the
type of bike that would be very suitable for my new found okada business in my
In practice, be a master of the few you have studied, learn them very well and if you want to add to your knowledge, feel free to join other study groups you might find, be part of them and never feel intimidated. After all you might discover that you know more than them.
Tip 3 to Succeeding in Exams
Do not think negative about others. Girls this one mostly applies to you people. Just like self esteem, what you think of others greatly affects you directly or indirectly, sub-consciously or even consciously.
You might not know this, but all the time you spend gossiping, jealousy and holding grudges against your friend, makes your friend even better than you. This state of mind makes your studying process more difficult and painful. So free up your mind before you pick up a book today and most importantly do not keep malice with friends.
Tip 4: Overcome Fear!
Just like intimidation, fear has a way of getting back at us. No matter what you read, that fear in you will always tell you that you will fail. Let me break it down for you like this: F-False, E-Evidence, A-Appearing, R-Real. False Evidence Appearing Real.
Overcoming examination fears can be achieved through studying with more confident students for that particular examination. Studying with close friends may also help overcome fear over time.
Tip 5: Choose a strategy!
A strategy is a means you want to use and achieve your goals. Since your goal is to pass JAMB and get admission into a university or polytechnic, you have to decide on a good strategy to adopt. If you are a good listener, you might try listening more often from your friends in group discussions.
Like-wise, if you are a slow learner, you might as well try reading and attempting past questions to allow it stick faster to your brains. Choosing a strategy you are comfortable with will not only make you pass exams, but it will boost confidence and reduce fear in you. So which examination strategy are adopting for your April exams?
Tip 6: Bring in the God Factor
If you have read to this point and you do not have a place in your heart for God, I rather suggest you walk round your area and look for a hug-able transformer, so that we will understand what M.I meant in his song ‘beef’. So in essence, fear and love God. Pray before you study and before your exams, and every other success factor will be easier for you to apply.
