Students preparing for jamb registration 2019 feel that the exam is hard,the truth is it is as hard while you ensure it is or look at it- as man think in the heart, so is he, for few who know the secret it is not easier in theory whatsoever. All you need to know is the secrets- these points, before registering and going to the examination hall.
First: Study hard and thoroughly prepared for the questions-get relevant textbooks, preferably the recommended texts and some texts and to aid your preparation. Second: Understand the technique and mode to answer UTME/JAMB examination questions.
For example, in the art subjects, no calculation is necessary, so it would be better to start with the niche you happen to be great at most first to achieve some period of time for your other subjects, please DO NOT follow the order of subjects within the question paper set e.g LIT- CRK-GOVT and you already know that you great at GOVT most, then you must start with GOVT and proceed accordingly to others. And for sciences such as chemistry and physics, the initial few pages are filled with calculations whereas the very last pages are straight respond to questions. Beware of this trap. Begin with the niche you happen to be best at first, the easy order is CHEM-PHY-MTH or BIO-CHEM-PHY or choose any order suitable and stay fast and accurate as well as you simply 54 seconds to answer an issue (yes less one minute)
JAMB/UTME ENGLISH- Read the questions first before answering and pay attention to details. Third: Practice, Practice- Learn to practice with past questions with proper and required timing at certain practice sessions because the examiners, no matter how creative or crafty, would still created similar and related inquiries to the questions. Finally, have a positive mindset for success inside the exams and end up forgetting about ‘runs’ because most of the ‘runs’ men do not know anything. After the above steps is the easiest and surest approach to finding yourself on your choice institution campus come next academic session.
Every Nigerian youth wants to attend a university. It is every parent’s dream that their children graduate from an excellent university to ensure that there is a better life than theirs. That is a progressive situation other than the snag is most people are facing exactly the same direction: they want to attend the same tertiary institutions.But existing infrastructure, policies and political realities are becoming a stumbling block for the hundreds of thousands from the country’s youths to accomplish this dream because it is easier for a camel to polkhu with the eye of the needle than for secondary school leavers to gain admission into some universities and polytechnics in Nigeria. To illustrate: only 30 per cent out of the 1.7 million candidates who wrote the JAMB latest news were admitted in 2017.
However, where there exists a will, said the JAMB boss, there exists a way. “If any institution does not do its admission promptly, we shall withdraw the names of the students and transfer these to the current market place where others can pick them. Whenever we are going to do first choice admission, do your personal even if you are not prepared to resume,” he had said.
In the same breath, the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, called for further transparency inside the mode of admissions, saying, “Please, allow the qualities of transparency, honesty, sincerity, equity, loyalty, and persistence for nation building be our guiding principles. We should be dissuaded from doing any official business underneath the table.“We have extensively consulted on the way forward and I therefore urge each institution to adhere to the regulations. Some of you execute your duties with full understanding and data that a number of your actions cannot stand the test of integrity, as some of the infractions you endorse and approve are irregular.”
