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 here is that since the JAMB questions are quite different from that of the next candidate sitting by your side, malpractice would be difficult, and the time given to answer the questions would not be enough to scan through each other computer’s screen.

Please you can download our JAMB Past question APP or visit the Jamb official website and start teaching yourself how to manage your time and answer the questions yourself. This is one of the most ignored aspects, but one of the best road to succeeding in JAMB examinations.

JAMB 2020 Exams: 7 Must-Read For all Jambites

Why do people fail in Exams? I have pondered this question in my head over and over again without having going anyway, scoring high in an examination is not a jinx, all you need to do is just to follow basics many intelligent students have been using for decades, and amazingly, it still works.

What prompt me to write this article titled “JAMB 2020 Exams: 7 Must-Read For all Jambites” is because most people don’t understand what needs to be done before writing any examination.

Firstly to have before dreaming of becoming a student of any tertiary institution in Nigeria is to have good self-esteem. Do not judge me wrongly here.

I am not going to tell you to read until we discover another source of electricity from your brains. I already assume your parents, uncles, aunties and even your oga’s and madams ‘at the top’ have lectured (or should I say bored you) on that already. I am just here to fix your brain to fit into an examination environment. So what is self-esteem?

It is all about how you see your self (very important!) The confidence you have in yourself that you’re ready for the examination. it might amaze you that the majority of people who think that they cannot pass an examination actually end up not passing that exam.

If you stand in front of a mirror and tell your self that you can’t pass the examination, then JAMB examination will have the courage to tell you worse (believe me).

So from today, as you study for your upcoming examinations, start whispering sweet success to yourself, network with sound-minded people who also share your goals and belief.

Tip 2 to Succeeding in Exams.

Never get intimidated by what others are studying or reading. Very funny right? My first experience as a JAMB candidate was very intimidating. I once entered a JAMB tutoring class thinking I have read enough only to discover that I was still a learner.

The questions two girls were throwing at one another made me wonder if it was the same JAMB I’m 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 imagination world.

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 negatively about others. Just like self-esteem, what you think of others greatly affects you directly or indirectly, subconsciously 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 by 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 to 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 will you be adopting for your JAMB 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 around 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.
