How To Pass JAMB Exam
Every exam comes with a syllabus otherwise known as an area of concentration (A.O.C). There is an AOC for WASSCE, JAMB, and even when you gain admission to the University, your lecturers might give you AOCs. Now, the first step to passing your JAMB examination is by getting your hands on the Jamb Syllabus.
It serves as a guide when reading your textbooks or solving past questions. Trying to read without a syllabus is like a blind man trying to walk through an unfamiliar road without a guide or stick.
JAMB gives out syllabus because they understand that students cannot possibly read everything in their educational textbooks because it’s voluminous and could easily overwhelm students. And so, they have made things easier by selecting topics they are likely to get questions to set for the exams.
You can never go wrong using the syllabus when preparing for the examinations. It guides you to read whatever subjects you must have registered for the exams.
JAMB hasn’t looked back since the inception of the Computer-Based Test (CBT). They have always conducted exams using the CBT method, and so, if you hope that they might scrap it out, you had better stop and concentrate your efforts on learning how to use a computer.
How do you learn to use a computer? If you don’t have a personal computer at home, you may need to take frequent trips to the Cyber café to learn how to use one.
Although this is an old-school method, it accommodates those that might not have Smartphones to make learning to use a computer easier
