When it comes to the writing of Jamb, candidates are always scared and naive forgetting that it Jamb is just like every other exam. So today I have decided to post Five major tricks that will help you as a student to overcome Jamb and not just Jamb but every other exam you find difficult. Below are the five major tricks to help you overcome Jamb Time management: To help sort out your time management, set up a timetable for your study. Write down how many subjects that you will be writing on the jamb and the day on which you have to sit for your own jamb exam. Then organize your study accordingly. You may want to give some subjects especially mathematics, physics, chemistry (although that depends on how good you are with any available subjects) more study time than others, so find a balance that you feel comfortable with. Remember do not wait till exam date is announced before you start studying your books. Getting rid of distractions: Make sure you have enough space to sort your textbooks and notes out. Try as much as possible to get enough study light that won’t make you feel dizzy or suddenly tired when reading, know what type of study light that is quite comfortable for your eyes, (although white light is more encourage-able to be used for studying). Is your table, chair comfortable? Are your mobile phones, social media chatting or computer games out of sight? Be sure to perfectly Try and get rid of all distractions, and make sure you feel as comfortable and able to focus as possible during your reading sessions. Take regular breaks: While you may think it’s best to study for as many hours as possible, this can actually be counterproductive. If you were training for a marathon, you wouldn’t try and run 24 hours a day. Likewise, studies have shown that for long-term retention of knowledge, taking regular breaks really helps. Everyone’s different, to develop a study routine that works for you. If you study better in the morning, start early before taking a break at lunchtime. Or, if you’re more productive at nighttime, take a larger break earlier on so you’re ready to settle down come evening. Try not to feel guilty about being out enjoying the sunshine instead of hunched over your textbooks. Remember Vitamin D is important for a healthy brain. Plan your exam day: Make sure you get everything ready well in advance of the exam – don’t leave it to the day before to suddenly realize you don’t know the way, or what you’re supposed to bring. Check all the rules and requirements, and plan your route and journey time earlier because we know how bad Nigerian roads are. So if your exam centre is quite far from where your location is, be sure to travel as early as possible to the exam venue If possible, do a test run of the trip. If not, write down clear directions. Studying previous jamb past questions: is very important for every jamb candidates, there is no doubt to let you know that 30% of every jamb examination mostly comes from the past written jamb examinations. So, therefore, studying past exam question will not only help to enhance your exam preparations but it can also make you minimize your chance of failing the jamb exam.
