The Nigerian educational system is one major breakaway from all other systems when it comes to global educational affairs. So, just a year back, the Federal Government and the Ministry in charge of educational affairs made an imperative decision. The decision revolved around the cancellation of Post Jamb. Hence, students seeking admission to the university are qualifiable if they meet the qualification set for WAEC and JAMB alone.
So, it went down into practice for a year. But somehow, the school authorities couldn’t stomach its implications for too long. And the University of Ibadan especially forwarded their complaint. Apparently, a supposed medical student in UI failed woefully in a simple test. It had never happened in the history of UI. And the authorities were not in any mood to take it with light hands.
Following this, the Post-Jamb system is now back. For this year, many universities have already organised post jamb for their candidates. And from tomorrow to the next, that is, Friday to Saturday, UI is going to be holding the post jamb exams for candidates across the country.
As gathered by VTpass, most students are not exactly thrilled with the news of their having to write post Jamb. According to most of them, the news was a shock to them in light of the previous year. And learning that they have to dust off their books after bearing the no post jamb mentality for too long is not really pleasant. Any which way, this doesn’t stop the exam from taking place.
As a result here are success tips for any student sitting for the UI’s post-Utme and any other. This is coming from VTpass, your one-stop online payment platform that makes it easy to pay for your educational bills.
TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL POST JAMB EXAM
1. READ WELL
This cannot be understated or overemphasized. To really pass well, it is important to pore over the books and notes. However, reading is not dependent on just how much energy or time and stress is put into staring at a book. It actually is more of knowing how best one assimilates and following a productive pattern.
2. PAST QUESTIONS
To excel for any exam, you are advised to study the past questions. You must have heard this a lot, but it is actually true. An effective study of the past questions keeps you in tune of the pattern of questions usually asked. So if you have not already checked out UI’s past questions, it’s not too late.
3. GO EARLY TO THE EXAM HALL
This helps, really. For one, it gives you a relaxed and stable mood. Then again, you get to listen to other students talk and pick useful tidbits from their discussions. You necessarily don’t need to say anything, you can just listen. And yet again, you do not stand the chance of missing the exam when you go early.
4. MATERIALS, PLEASE
It is irking to see students go to write an exam without the needed things in place. What’s a farmer without his tools? Or a chef without the necessitated cutleries? What is really more irking is seeing how these students beg for these things during the exam. For a good exam time, make sure to go with everything you would need.
5. DO NOT CHEAT
This shouldn’t be told. But many students still engage in this pernicious act. An exam is meant to be a test of one’s ability. We should let it stay that way.
