To score high in JAMB exam, follow these tips:

First, you have to understand the JAMB Exam Pattern: Many candidates do not understand the exam’s structure, like the number of questions, time allotted, and sections. You can find this information in the official JAMB brochure. Recognise the marking system, and note the markings in each segment. Certain questions are more important than others, so plan your time appropriately.

Make a Study timetable: Make a timetable for your study in advance. Set aside specified hours for every topic and subject to guarantee thorough coverage, and follow this schedule consistently. Strive for more focused, condensed study sessions instead of trying to absorb a lot of material all at once. Be sure to use JAMB-approved materials. Check for JAMB curriculum and past questions, and use them. This acquaints you with the format and nature of the test questions.

Highlight Weak Areas: Determine your areas of weakness and focus on strengthening them. Give subjects in which you lack confidence more attention and do not be afraid to ask questions. Ask your teachers, fellow students, or internet resources for clarification if you are having trouble comprehending any particular topic. Do not stop asking questions until you get answers.

Construct Exam Conditions: Practice under test-like situations before the actual exam. This involves keeping to the time limits and finding a quiet place to sit. Working on time management, and solving old exam questions under exam conditions can improve your time management abilities and also assist you in adjusting to the time limits.

Participate in Study Groups: Join or start study groups with other applicants for the JAMB. Speaking with people about a subject can help you grasp it better and get new insights. Remember to stay informed about any modifications to the JAMB syllabus or exam structure. Check out the official JAMB website or reputable sources for information.

Lastly, take care of your health: Make sure you consume a balanced diet, get adequate sleep, and take breaks from studying. There is no point studying so hard and not healthy enough to finally write the exam. Physical well-being contributes a great deal to better learning.
