In a country like Nigeria, it is part of the educational system that students have also tested after their O’Level exams through the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board method of screening before they are allowed to further their tertiary institution programs except for institutions that offer admission without JAMB.
In the light of the above, here in this post, we shall share with you advice from a school teacher on best ways to make your JAMB papers at one sitting.
How to crash your big fear – JAMB exams
1. Learn how to write using the computer
Computer literacy is now a prerequisite for writing and passing JAMB screening test that everyone will at least learn how to click the computer mouse and select or deselect an answer and finally click on submit.
2. Get familiar with the system calculator
The traditional or manual calculator is no longer in use, you will have to learn how to make use of the calculator provided to you on your computer especially for students who are writing papers involving calculations.
Your mathematical skills are also crucial here as the calculator provided has limited functions unlike the traditional electronic calculator known to you.
3. Avoid girraffing
this is a common term used to mean cheating in the exam hall. Girraffing during JAMB screening test will earn you a bad score (punishment) you could be delayed for a while or even asked to leave the exam hall unfinished with your questions and that’s where your failure starts.
4. There’s no JAMB upgrade
The earlier the better if candidates writing JAMB exams stop daydreaming about JAMB result upgrade, there’s no such thing as upgrading of JAMB result.
The only upgrade you can do is pre-exam, by studying very hard and getting ready to smash your exams and come out with flying colours.
Anyone advising you of post-exam tips to enhance your score is probably trying to lure you into spending your hard-earned money in vain.
5. Don’t joke with past questions
Getting past questions handy before the exam starts, is a good preparatory part of the success journey to coming out with a better JAMB score lets say scoring above 300 without cheating.
this is possible because the exam Board, is found repeating JAMB questions and your familiarity with those questions will increase your chances of scoring high in the exam.
Finally, you are advised not to disrespect anyone during the exam period and do not engage in a conversation with other candidates, until you’re with your exams.
