I am in full support of the fact that you should study with past questions for Waec and Neco. This is because Waec and Neco twists or repeats past questions.
Sometimes, questions are repeated word for word. In other cases, the questions are twisted (slight modifications are made). You would also see a situation where the questions would be the same but the answers are twisted.
In anyways, using past questions is one of the keys to blast Waec and Neco once and for all.
Apart from the fact that Waec and Neco repeats questions, Studying with past questions makes you aware of the kind of questions Waec set and the type of answers they expect from you.
You may be wondering, should I cram past questions? This is where the major gist is. You are highly advised not to cram past questions. The reasons you should not cram past questions are simple:
First, it is easy for you to forget or miss things up when you cram. Nothing disappoints more than cramming to the exam hall. In fact, cramming disappoints more than “Amaka”.
Another reason should not cram is that any twist in the questions will confuse you. As a crammer, you would expect the questions to come out exactly the way you crammed it.
Finally, some questions may not be repeated. However, the topics have been asked in past questions. If you studied and understood past questions very well, you would have been able to find your way out.
With my few points above, hope I have been able to convince you that cramming is not good for you Waec and Neco ?
