Poor educational system is the reason why people perform very poor in UME. I take myself as an example, i wrote JAMB 3 times and did not score upto 200 in any of the JAMB. We lacked teachers in many subjects during my secondary school days. I managed to pass through WAEC and NECO

I got admission with a JAMB score of 183 in 2005 (proved myself during the first post-UME).

At the end, I emerged the best graduating student in my department with a FCGPA of 4.33. Yet in my class there were students with 280 and above in JAMB.

This is just to tell you that our secondary schools really count. The government should ensure that education at all level is given the best attention.

Past questions help too. Esp in Post utme. Some departments don't even have time to set those questions. So they do 'copy and paste' . I'm a living testimony.

Kadata, your right. It has to do with the syllabus. Working with syllabus early enough will guarantee success, but most students don't do that.

@Stevetboy i was in the same situation, but what i did was to read topics that were present in both syllabus. Which wasn't that hard as they are almost similar.

There's one thing you guys didn't mention. The use of past questions. It's what i and my friends studied with before the exams and it makes a difference.

The day you underestimate discipline , is the day you start failing.

I don't need to convince anyone on this. I've tested it. It worked perfectly. It's working well. And it's working for others too.

The day you leave ur fate in d hands of luck is the day u start becoming uncertain about ur future. Do you watch promos? The winner is always lucky- not because he had d most entries, but because luck 'ran in to him' . Unfortunately, life isn't like that.

@Steve

you have a point. It's not easy to combine both syllabus, but at d same time, how many candidates will be willing to sacrifice one year at home?

I reason wit you but it is not easy. Why,like for me, we were writing our WAEC while writing JAMB so to combine both as in reading with syllabus was not easy. For those who wrote after sec. Skul, it is not easy for them to sit and read without any tutor. Anyway,al those were excuses which self discipline can handle.

I dont think Jamb does with only teaching but thats a major factore, there is too much corruption in the educational systems, they are people that get 6As in WAEC and fail jamb how is this possible u wonder. when all the expo and runs from the marking system and all have been cleared up then we can blame it on the teaching or students unwillingness to learn.

Poor teaching at primary and secondary levels, anybody can achieve anything if they have the right educational social and financial support.
