JAMB stands for Joint Admission and Matriculation Board. This year this exam has gone digital and this means you need to have great computer skills to pass it. That’s for one. If you are not very good with computers, take your time and get the skills you need. The next one is to make a timely, or which is best – early registration.

Avoid doing the PPT (pen and paper test) and prefer the digital one. Last year many students discovered, they got someone else’s results and could do nothing about it. Finally, do not pick the most popular colleges to enter. This way you can boost your admission chances and lower the risks.

You are looking for the secrets to success in JAMB's examination? Hmmm! The answer is you guy check it. It depends on how much preparation you make before taking the exam its not the location of writing the exam. You got it right?

Also, in every you do always remember to put God first. Always remember this 'Prayerful Preparation Prevents Poor Performance'. Thank you. I hope you'd make use of this piece of information.

The success to JAMB is study very hard.  The challenge is not even passing JAMB, remember you will still face the principality called "APTITUDE TEST"  Universities are not using these as a medium to enrich themselves.  If u don't have 50k no admission.  Na so we agree.

This is my 10kobo

1. Realise that UME is not do or die

2. Make a Time-Table for yourself

3. Get the Jamb Syllabus for each subject

3. Get past questions( especially the most recent) for each subject.

4. Get the right Textbook for each subject

5. Study smartly using the the past questions with the textbook and syllabus.

6. Join tutorial groups or friends that are taking same subjects with you.

7. If you can afford it find a JAMB coaching class(many are in Lagos)

8. Use only the past questions when its 2 weeks to the exam.

9. Even if you are not able to cover syllabus, don't panic,

approach the exam center with confidence.

10. Attempt all the questions that you can answer.

Do your best and leave the rest

Most Important :PRAY! while preparing and after exam.

Best

Get a collection of past question papers for the exams you want to write. After you are done with the sylabus, start practising with this. Do it under exam conditions. I remember I practised about 12 years of past questions under exam conditions. Your success will be guranteed if you do that. Good Luck

Find a JAMB syllabus, read, read, read and read!!!!!! I used to read at least 12 hrs a day then for more than 8 weeks.

Make sure u cover ur ababio, nelkon, and biology textbook back to back at least 2ce.

MOST OF ALL, learn to work under pressure, speed is vital! Read past questions so u can learn how to answer questions that sometimes do not require so much thinking.

Do not panic, work hard, be fast and PRAY!

I answered only 22 questions out of 50 in the physics section (i never learned how to work that section as fast as possible). It probably cost me a place in my first choice university!

In my days, JAMB was d true test of ability. The exam is quite different from WAEC/ NECO because they are based on 'normed' grades. This means your grades in those exams depend on general performance. Those exams are also just a test of your rudimentary knowledge of topics

Now to JAMB

1. Make sure you get a syllabus to know what you are required to know in each subject

2. Make sure you understand the difference between similar things eg Cartillage, muscles because they dont just test whether you have an idea but if you know the difference between pretty similar things

3. For calculation based subjects, JAMB options are actually based on misconceptions ie if you dont understand well, your wrong answer will also be available

4. Get as many past questions as possible. When you practice make sure you confirm your answers from reputable textbooks and not 'Hungry authors' with wuruwuru answers

5. Work on your speed and accuracy because its a test of both, thers's no point knowing all the answers but not being able to finish

6. You must attempt the simple questions first

7. With your familiarity with past questions, you will discover the areas where questions usually come from & you can quickly pick on your areas of strength first

8. Try to sleep early the day before the exam so that you can wake up fresh

ABOVE ALL, PRAY HARD!!! YOU NEED GOD 2 crown your efforts with success

find out what 3R means. look for pastor W F kumiyi book on the 3R, I am not sure if they still make them,  go and read,  Time yourself with old past question.  Aim to score 100% and win JAMB best result,  Really get the book. it would help you. pray pray to God. Dont wate time on any question you do not know. move on quickly to the one you know, any question that become difficult leave it and go to the next one, if you have time to come back to it do , if not do not make up any answer. If you are best in maths, and physics try to get 90% in both and one of my friend i was told got 100 in jamb before, during my days if you get less than 250% my brother no university for you, medicine was about 270 in every university, ele ele was about 265 , I hear na all you need is 200 , it was so common those day to get people with 300. na i do not think anybody score 360 or more, I do not blame you people the system was better and AWO care so much about education, I which he could still be alive, Awo and UPN use to give text book, pen, ruler and exercise book to all children in UPN state. We miss you AWO,

that exam is not easy. my friends fail like sands but you won't fail if you can study hard especially if you can try ''99- 2003 jamb papers and make sure you do it until you think you understand 90% of them questions, work with syllabus and pray. please don't rely on jamb alone try others with it cos lots of people i know have issues with jamb like, they can't find questions that has my number on it, they gave me agric to chemistry, no enough questions, seized results and rich people buy results by replacing yours with their dumb child's own and they can't do that in gce or waec. but it was easy to cheat there though(don't do it)good luck.

I think the main important issuse here is Prayer,then have a Goal and a Determination,then you read Hard and play less,never copy others cos we are not gifted in the same way,i may read for 2hours and understand all i have read,you may read up to 10 hours with getting all you have read what am saying is that Just Discover yourself and remain focused,also the golden rule of Jamb is that never read overnight when your exam remains 2 days ahead of you as this may affect you in the hall,also be yourself,dont do I TOO KNOW in the hall as this annoys the examiner so much that somtimes they sized the results,another thing is location;This is very vital and important,inquire about their earlier results there.if you can do all these Univeristy is your Aim.But dont forget this main Point"Remeber the son of whom you are."

Well Jamb, jamb.

I have not seen the question papers in recent years but it an exam that differetiate the boys from the men.

You get all the past question booklets on all the subject you are going to taking. And i will advice that you Test yourself.

This will give you awareness of you level of knowldge and help you know how much preparation you need. So Pick a subject, time yourself and write the exam.

At the end mark you paper and grade yourself.

After the grade, check the subject you are better off at. During my day, my strength was Maths, physics, and chemistry

I will alway score above 60% in maths, about 50% in physics, the same in Chemistry, My English was poor but i didn't mind.

The Idea is to know your strength and concentrate on improving your weakness. At the end you need to be an all rounder to score above 200 in jamb but you have to aim high.

Good luck man. Look for a good lesson in you area, look for serious friends too,

Locations matters when u take jamb. Some locations are known to do expo hence always lead to seizing of the canditates result. Shine ur eyes well well and take exams in centers without problems,

as far as study goes, just sit ur Bottom down and study. Jamb is tricky but if u understand their trick, u r get to go. Most jamb questions can be answered in seconds if u know the short cuts especially maths

Regards study assistant, jamb brochure comes with details of what u need to study or know. So i suggest u study the subjects well, get jamb past questions papaers . Good luck.

I did my jamb one short, got 7As and 2 credit in my WAEC and got 8As and one C in my NECO, I got addmission in Futo but at the same time, I regected my addmision becasue Iscored 1350 in my SAT1 one combined score so i left for US for a greener pasture.

Well, hard work matters alot, i mean it will help u in the future.

Again when it comes external exam like WAEC, NECO and 'JAMB' especially you have to shine your eyes well well

@Bisiriyu location matter if you want to write examination in certain state of Nigerian,

In the state i am now, there is one city called warri. we have very good teacher, anything about education the school here have all.

but one thing that supprise me most, ever since i have access to the internet, which give me the previlage to be checking result of candidate who wrote WAEC GCE.

all the result i had checked, the student were blessed with F9, E8, P7 and very very few C5 & C6 if i would used that adjective to qualify it. but for those that have good result, i get to knew that warri is not their center.

if you write jamb in warri, it is either your result is withheld, or with score a low mark

See i am a victim of a candidate who sat twice in WAEC, i never did runs, i really work hard, but at the end of it waec decide to give me P in my maths and english, i have never experience failure in my school life not till that day.

But when i traveled to my village to write that same exam, with low preparation, because i do not have that same zeleous in the first place. behold i came out with enough Bs and Cs (mind you, i do not participate in runs)

do not let them deceive you, place matter alot, in where i stay (delta state) i know the place you write and pass and also where you write and swear to God that this result does it belong to me

Sibli is just lucky that he is not a victim, if not, he would have knew how to talk to you, i mean address you.

i will check this topic later 4 more update

Igwe,

Hard work is the secret you need. It does not matter whether you write it in gusau or zamfara.

Read hard and put God in your reading thru prayers so that you'll write once and pass.

Learn to trust the lord with your faith.

With hardwork, perseverance and determination, you'll surely make it.

There is no shortcut or magic anywhere.

I wish you the best.
