Studying Jamb Past Questions Effectively For 2021
Back to the topic of the day, “How To Study Past Questions And Understand Them Very Well”. Follow the rules and regulations below:
1. Read Your TextBooks First:
The mistake of so many Jamb candidates is that they rush straight to Jamb past questions without having background knowledge of the topics in the Jamb syllabus for all subjects.
Before making attempts to solve problems in past questions, you ought to have covered the topic very well in your textbook(s). Studying past questions without reading will confuse you.
The following are the best order you must follow to study effectively for Jamb 2021.
- Get the recommended materials.
- Go through Jamb syllabus.
- Study with your syllabus and textbooks.
- Get Jamb Pack and study past questions.
- Study with textbooks, jotters, syllabus and Jamb past questions.
- Refer to Textbook for any question/answer on PQ you don’t understand.
- Go through as many questions as many times as possible.
2. Choose The Study Method:
The two options you have here are to either solve past questions from specific topic(s) or attempt everything. The choice you make depends on your level of preparedness.
After reading how to answer comprehension passages in Jamb English, you may want to test yourself by only studying the comprehension part in your Jamb past questions and so on.
When the exams are close, your best bet is to answer everything in the order they appear. When in the exam hall, answer questions that won’t take your time before going to the difficult ones.
3. Read, Understand, Solve Problems & Jot Down:
First, read the Jamb past question(s), understand what the questions requires and then proceed to solve the problems.
Don’t study to impress anyone and never skip any question giving you headache. Ensure to solve everything and refer to your textbooks for clarifications when necessary.
Finally, ensure to jot down any important point or lesson you got from the question (s). Jotting down would help you during revisions.
4. Check Your Answers:
Some answers in your Jamb past question pack are wrong. Ensure to check textbooks also for correct answers you failed or are not clear about. Don’t cram answers too… With constant practice, you would be good.
5. More Practice:
Don’t say, “I have solved this question, therefore I won’t go back to it” Ensure to solve the questions as many times as possible before Jamb 2021 exam date. The more you study, the more you are good to go.
