The easiest way to score very high in Jamb examination is to understand how to answer Jamb questions.
If you have written different examinations, you will understand that the nature of questions differs.
As the nature of questions differs for different examinations, So also the approach to questions.
You don’t expect to answer Jamb questions the same way you answer WAEC or NECO questions.
Now, lets see how to answer Jamb questions to score very high.
How To Answer Jamb Questions
1. Be Smart
The answer can either be A, B, C, D or E. You will not be awarded any mark for picking the closest option.
You must be extremely careful while picking an option. Also, be sure of your answer before choosing it.
For comprehension passages, you must be able to justify that your answers are correct and matches the evidence presented in the passage.
If you don’t understand the question, feel free to do a wise ques. However, don’t pick a random answer when you are good at the topic. Keep calm and analyze the question.
2. Check Units and Symbols
This is especially for calculation subjects. Your answer might be correct, however, did you check whether it is in standard unit?
If you have the question:
Given that F=20N and M=2Kg. Calculate the acceleration of the car……..
A. 4 B. 10s C. 15m/s^2 D. 24 E. None of the above.
What is your answer?
The answer is B right? You are wrong. It is true that acceleration is Force divided by mass (20/2 =10). However, the unit for acceleration is not seconds
3. Understand The Question
So many candidates fail Jamb, not because they don’t know the question but, because they do not understand the question.
When you see the Jamb question, put away fear and over confidence. Try to see what they are asking.
Do not assume what they are asking, find out what they are really talking about. Assumption is the lowest form of knowledge.
Do not assume that you understand the question, actually understand it. Do not cram past questions. It will harm you in the long run.
4. Answer The Simple Ones First
In the Jamb exam hall, you are not permitted to waste time. After all, you don’t have all the time in the world.
When you get the questions, quickly flash through them to see the ones you can easily answer.
Tackle these ones first before laying hands on the more challenging ones. This doesn’t mean that you cannot answer everything. It is just a proven approach to save time.
5. Answer Everything
You may not have the answer to every question in the Jamb exam hall. However, you can answer every question in Jamb exam hall. Do not leave any option unpicked. Generally, there is no negative marking in Jamb.
Here, do a very wise ques. Go back to the questions you have answered correctly and see the pattern it follows.
If majority of your answers are Option “C”, you may want to choose C in the unknown…
What I am trying to say is this; try to see the pattern the answers follow and see what you can bring out of it to answer the questions you are not very sure of.
