Students preparing for UTME/Jamb exams think that the exam is hard,the fact is that it is as hard as you make it or see it- as man think in his heart, so is he, for few who know the secret it is not easier said than done at all. All you need to know is the secrets- these points, before registering and going into the examination hall.
First: Study hard and thoroughly prepared for the questions-get relevant textbooks, preferably the recommended texts and a few texts also to aid your preparation.
Second: Know the technique and mode to answer UTME/JAMB examination questions.
For example, in the art subjects, no calculation is required, so it would be better to start with the subject you are good at most first to gain some amount of time for the other subjects, please DO NOT follow the order of subjects in the question paper set e.g LIT- CRK-GOVT and you know that you good at GOVT most, then you have to start with GOVT and proceed accordingly to others. And for sciences such as chemistry and physics, the first few pages are filled with calculations whereas the last pages are straight answer questions. Beware of this trap. Start with the subject you are best at first, the easy order is CHEM-PHY-MTH or BIO-CHEM-PHY or choose any order suitable and be fast and accurate as well as you only 54 seconds to answer a question (yes less 1 minute)
JAMB/UTME ENGLISH- Read the questions first before answering and pay attention to details.
Third: Practice, Practice- Learn to practice with past questions with proper and required timing at certain practice sessions as the examiners, no matter how creative or crafty, would still come out with similar and related questions to the questions.
Finally, have a positive mindset for success in the exams and forget about ‘runs’ because most of the ‘runs’ men do not know anything.
Following the above steps is the easiest and surest way to find yourself on your choice institution campus come next academic session. Hope to see you on campus next session.
