Reading is very easy; anyone can pick up and book and say, “I am reading“… But reading for Waec and Neco is a different ball game. It has a lot to do with a full understanding of what you’re reading.
Have you ever wondered why many candidates read but still fail Waec and Neco? This is because not everyone actually reads the right way. Without much introduction, below are effective tips to read for your Waec and Neco.
Don’t Read By Force
Don’t read when you’re weak or tied. It is natural to be stressed out after your daily activities. In this case, your level of assimilation would reduce. It is not advisable to read for your exam in that condition.
Take some time to rest and Ginger up… Come back to your book at a Better Time and Twice as Tall. Your body isn’t Made in Lagos, please take good care of it. A sick person can’t effectively prepare for exams.
Read To Understand
Don’t just open your book because others are reading, do it with good intentions. Study to understand and to pass Waec, Neco and Jamb once and for all. I heard many boys now read to impress girls and some girls read to show off to boys.
That’s not reading but deceit. Make sure you understand the topic(s) you are reading and always feel free to ask questions. Don’t stop asking questions until you understand.
Ask Yourself Questions
After reading, ask yourself the question, what have I learn’t so far and how does it help in my Waec and Neco? Start reading the topic over again if you have not gained anything. Stop jumping from one topic to another until you ask yourself this question.
Don’t Think About SSCE Expo
Thinking about Waec expo or runs will automatically reduce your level of hard work and mental assimilation process. Have the mentality, “Waec is between me and God minus runs”. This will help boost your focus and responsibility. Thought of cheating kills your zeal…
Don’t Skip Difficult Questions Or Topics
It is natural for you to run when you come across very difficult questions. Before you run next time, ask yourself, what if Neco/Waec set these questions in the exam?
Always find a solution to any difficult question or topic you come across before proceeding to others. Stop skipping Questions because you are not the one setting Waec and Neco Questions.
Face Your Weakness
This is specifically for people who feel Mathematics or a specific subject/Topic is too difficult for them to comprehend.
Don’t run away from these Topics/Subjects because you can’t gain admission into any University without at least credit in Mathematics and English Language. Other subjects are relevant to your admission too.
Read A Topic More Than Once
This is the undoing of many Waec and Neco candidates. They read once and feel it is over. My dear! it is never over until the exams are over.
Go through every subject and topic as many times as possible. The more you read, the more you are able to unravel the miseries behind most Neco and Waec questions and answers.
Memorize Some Points
It is good to read and understand. However, there are certain topics or points in some subjects you don’t have to understand. Just memorize them and you are home and dry. I will get to that in my future Episodes.
