1. Deal with Exam fear: Examination fear is something that will come when preparing for very crucial exams like this one, but you must look for a way to overcome it. Apparently, you will not be able to take away the fear totally but you should be able to minimize it. There are two basic reasons why you must take away fear when preparing for JAMB. Firstly, allowing fear to take over yourself is capable of causing you a catastrophic problem during the exam. More so, fear can limit your ability to prepare for the examination.

Of course, it is okay to be a little bit anxious but do not allow it to take over you. Try to be confident in your self because that is the only way you can prepare very well with the right mindset.

It is important to also know that people are always going to make you feel that JAMB exam is a thing of luck and that your preparation won’t matter much at the end of the day. This is a big fat lie. Trust me, if you keep your courage you won’t regret it at the end of the day. There is no secret for passing JAMB. If you read hard you will score high. In that same way, if you fail to read hard, you will blame yourself for failure at the end of the day.


2. Study relentlessly: No doubt, reading is king. It is the only key for passing JAMB the right way. It is also the most difficult part of this article to put into practice. Nowadays students find it difficult to read but still want to pass their examination without any problem. You cannot pass JAMB examination if you do not study.

In the same light, you cannot pass excellently if you do not study relentlessly. The way you study for the examination will determine your score eventually, so you have to study relentlessly.

Frankly speaking, it is probably impossible to be 100% prepared before JAMB examination. However, if you study relentlessly, you will get to a point where you can confidently tell yourself that you have done justice to all that is required.

What I am saying in essence is that, you really need to study if you want to pass JAMB examination. JAMB is not easy. It is not easy because the syllabus for all the subjects in JAMB is always voluminous. Thus, a relentless reading is the only way to cover what is required.

3. Leave the recommended English text if necessary: It is important you take note of this point. JAMB often release a recommended English textbook for candidates every year and many students make the mistake of spending all their time an effort reading the book instead of reading for the larger part of the examination.

Funnily enough, not more than 10 questions will be asked from the recommended English textbook, and that is why you must not spend all your time and efforts on it. But don’t get me wrong here. If you have the time, you should read it. However, don’t relax on just the textbook, thinking that you will score 400/400 just like that.

Let me tell you the truth, sometimes the question asked from the recommended English textbook is very difficult that even those that read the book in details may not be able to answer correctly. So, instead of wasting too much time, channel you efforts that will really make a positive impact on your result at the end of the day.

4. Do not cram questions: One of the mistakes I did during my time (2017) was to cram questions I saw in JAMB questions and answers. This is very wrong if you are doing. The truth remains that, JAMB always repeat questions, yes! But they may not repeat those questions word-to-word.

So, in as much as you are preparing by reading your JAMB past questions and answers, must understand those questions. In fact, you must know the topic that question borders on and study it very well because you may not see something exactly the same with what you saw in JAMB past questions and answers.

Students often make this mistake and that is why I decided to share this tip here. Trust me; if you are able to do this, them be rest assured of any score above 270 in the impending JAMB examination.

5. Study smartly: If you really want to pass JAMB examination, you must study smartly. JAMB is not a child’s play so you must work smartly. Gone are those days when students work hard to pass JAMB examination.

Nowadays, if you want to pass JAMB examination, you need to study smartly and not hard. The reason is because, JAMB unlike before, is a CBT exam. You will agree with me that the ways used for preparing and passing CBT exams is quite different from any other examination.

For JAMB, candidates must study with clear sight. I mean, taking cognizance of all the key-points in their textbooks and materials. JAMB is not going to ask anybody to define anything. They pick their questions from the line of their recommended texts.

So you see, reading the whole of your Government, Chemistry or mathematics textbooks does not necessarily mean that you will pass JAMB examination. You are expected to work smartly and not hard.

6. Always test yourself: If you search on Google now, you will find thousands of online free CBT websites and app that can help you prepare and pass JAMB examination. In my view, no student should take JAMB examination without practicing at least 20 times with a good JAMB CBT app.

JAMB CBT apps are very important because they tend to put candidates in the exact exam condition they will be when writing JAMB examination. For instance, with a good CBT app you can fix the time you want to use for your questions. By doing this, you are inversely learning how to manage your time very well.

Accordingly, one of the best ways to overcome fear for JAMB examination is by testing yourself. It will make you feel strong. The truth is that, you cannot possibly do very well in the impending JAMB examination is you do not test yourself. Whether you use and app or not is immaterial.


7. Take JAMB Mock examination: In order to correctly test the credibility of her software, JAMB usually conduct Mock exams for candidates but not everyone will participate in the examination. A mock examination is just a test that comes before the main exam. The aim is usually to prepare candidates and test their abilities for the main examination.

For the 2022/2023 JAMB UTME Screening, the examination board has announced that only candidates who applied for the examination on time and willing to write the exam will be allowed to participate.

Accordingly to Dr. Fabian Benjamin (Director of Media for JAMB), mock examination will commence on the 16th of April 2022. This date may however be extended if need be.

Candidates are also encouraged to go to their exam centre with just N700 for the mock. This is a very small amount of money and i actually encourage everyone reading this article to try and apply for the mock because it is also helpful too.

8. Be pessimistic: Even though you have to read hard and take your exams very serious, being pessimistic will also help. It will help you to reduce fear and tension during JAMB examination. The truth is that, JAMB examination is very difficult because of its voluminous syllabus.

Nevertheless, that does not also mean you should think negative about your success. Even the bible says that “as a man thinks it, so shall it be unto him.” Thus, you mindset about JAMB examination will also contribute to your success or failure in JAMB examination.

To be pessimistic means to have a positive notion about something or someone. It helps a lot. Even when people tell you that it is impossible to pass JAMB with 300 and above, you can beat that score if you are determined and pessimistic. No doubt, it you want to pass JAMB examination, you have to start thinking positively about the examination.

9. Seek advice from experienced once: Experience, they say, is the best teacher. Due to the fact that it has been long since I wrote JAMB examination, I may not be able to tell you the ups and downs in the examination. That is expertly why you need the help of other students who recently wrote the examination and passed very well. Don’t be too timid to ask for the advice of other no matter how intelligent you are because, you are definitely going to learn something from them.

When they eventually tell you how the examination was in their time, you are supposed to pick some of the key things they said, mistakes they made and sure you don’t make that mistake during your time. This way, you will pass JAMB examination excellently.

10. Learn time management: Time management is one of the places students often get it wrong. Since 2016 till date, a large number of students often complain to that they were not given enough time to answer their questions after their exam.

This is why I must mention it here. In my view, it is very difficult if not impossible to pass JAMB examination without proper time management skill. You must learn to manage you time. You must learn to work with time even in an examination condition. A good way to learn this is by practicing with JAMB CBT Apps online and offline. They will help to put you in examination condition.

According, I advise you to plan the subject you want to answer first, second, third and last before going to the examination center. In doing that, make sure you answer easy subjects first before going to the difficult once.

More so, if you come across any question you do not understand, kindly skip it so that you will not waste too much time on it. All these tips will help you to save time during your examination.

11. Demise the notion of examination malpractice: In Nigeria, you seldom see a student that really wants to pass WAEC examination without engaging examination malpractice. In fact, most students believe it is absolutely impossible to pass WAEC examination without engaging in malpractice, but these are all fallacies.

Some time ago, I had this student who called me from Ghana, asking for expo from me. I quickly rebuked her, asking her to go and start reading her books. And to my greatest surprise, her reply was that; it is impossible to pass WAEC examination without examination malpractice. At that juncture, i saw one of the reasons why many student fail WAEC examination.

You can never be sure of passing WAEC examination in just one sitting by engaging in examination malpractice, because you can be caught while doing it.

And if unfortunately you are caught engaging in examination malpractice, then your chance of success in the examination has been jeopardised. So, I advise you don’t just rely on malpractice, but rely on what you read before entering your exam hall. That is the only sure success tool you have.

12. Be focused and avoid distractions: Distractions will come definitely. But you must be ready to avoid them and continue preparing. During my time, I stopped my friends from coming to my house for 5 months because I was so bent on passing the examination. I am not saying that you should leave your friends; but if they will stop you from reading, you must avoid them until you have passed your examination.
