The JAMB exam is expected to commence a few weeks from now. If you have not been preparing as you should, I guess you might be asking yourself, how can I prepare for the JAMB exam within the shortest possible time?
Preparing for JAMB within few weeks involves some tweaks and tricks. However, at this point, it depends on how smart and serious you are.
Here are a few tips to help you;
1. Learn to relax your mind: always learn to free yourself from fear. Why am I saying this? Some students always panic whenever they remember they have a JAMB exam.
There is no need for you to worry much about that. Relax your mind, have confidence in yourself because your panic means that you are not sure of your ability to pass the exam. I assured you that you can achieve more when your mind is relaxed than when you are in a state of panic!.
2. Time management: To help sort out your time management, set up a timetable for your study. Write down how many subjects that you will be writing. Then organize your study accordingly.
You may want to give some subjects especially mathematics, physics, chemistry (although that depends on how good you are with any available subjects) more study time than others, so find a balance that you feel comfortable with. Also, Use JAMB syllabus to narrow your reading so you won’t end up reading irrelevant topics.
3. Getting rid of distractions: Are your mobile phones, social media chatting or computer games out of sight? Be sure to perfectly try and get rid of all distractions, and make sure you feel as comfortable and able to focus as possible during your reading sessions.
Some of us need everything completely tidy and organized in order to concentrate, while others thrive in a more cluttered environment.
Think about what works for you and create an ideal study environment. This may mean almost complete silence, for others may be playing background music such as classical hits is what they need.
4. Study JAMB past questions: JAMB keeps recycling questions every year. Take advantage of this and study the Past Questions more frequently. JAMB may not repeat the questions word for word. This is the more reason you should revise past questions diligently that way it is easier for you to recognize any question you may have come across while studying even if it is presented in another way. I strongly advise you to download the Myschool JAMB CBT Mobile App (for android mobile phones) and Myschool JAMB CBT Software (for Desktops and Laptops). Both of them have over 60000 past questions and answers. Using any of them gives you an edge!
