Have you ever wondered how to prepare and pass Jamb 2021? Just like every other examination, Jamb requires special preparations. It is following this preparation that determines whether you will pass or fail Jamb. This guide covers how to prepare for Jamb 2021.
The West African Examination Council (Waec) covers three sections which are Objective, Theory and Practicals. On the other hand, the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) examination will test you on only Objective questions. All you need is to choose between the four given options A to D.
How To Prepare For Jamb 2021
1. Read Smart
In Waec you are permitted to read hard. After all, you will be asked to list, explain and give five examples each. The case is different in Jamb. Jamb is multiple-choice questions. It is very easy to pass and easy to fail as well.
Jamb is easy to pass when you are smart. Pay attention to details. As you read, take note of the key points. You must also learn to study effectively for long hours. This will help you go through everything within a limited time.
If you read smart, you will be able to guess answers correctly in the hall. I have explained how to do that here.
2. Don’t Skip Topics
In Waec, you will be given optional questions. However, Jamb wants you to answer all the questions. What does that tell you? Any topic you skip while preparing will surely come out in the exam.
Make sure you go through everything. Utilize the Jamb syllabus and do not read off point.
3. Study Past Questions
You might have heard the rumour spreading like wild wire that Jamb has stopped the use of past questions. As far as I am concern, you cannot score very high in Jamb without the use of past questions.
Some persons do ask me the question, where should I start studying from In Jamb past questions? If possible, answer everything. With very limited time, start from 2005 questions.
4. Test Yourself
After going through three years past questions, take the fourth year as examination. Cover or erase the answers, time yourself and attempt the questions.
This will enable you examine your level of preparedness. Always do this at least once in every two weeks. It is very helpful.
5. Get Good Books
Some textbooks are very simple. This doesn’t reduce the quality of content. Getting such books will make learning easier for you. There are about five of them I would have listed, however, It is beyond the scope of this article.
In conclusion, if the textbook you are using for Jamb is too difficult, try a simpler once. You will always find good books around.
6. Meet Persons
The best way to prepare for Jamb is to meet persons around. These persons should be Jamb candidates, just as you are. Meet them, discuss with them and ask them questions.
Other set of persons you should meet are those who have written and excelled in Jamb.
7. Prepare Personal Timetable
List out the topics you have covered, the ones you need to go through again and the ones you have not touched. Prepare a timetable that will enable you go through them before the exam day.
Make sure you revise everything before the exam day.
The use of study timetable doesn’t work for me. If it works for you, stick to it.
