6 Tips to Help you in the Course of your JAMB Exam
1. Know the Venue of your Examination Before the Main Date:
You see, many aspirants often believe that they don’t need to know their venue beforehand and they can get to know it easily and conveniently during the main date, hmm, do not copy them.
I remember making the same mistake with the same effrontery. When I was writing my Jamb in 2015, I was allocated to write my papers at Iju, Fagba. Because of the nearness and for the reason that I have a friend who lives around there and knows the route very much, I was convinced that I have no reason to stress myself and waste transport money on going to the venue.
So, I called my friend instead and he gave me a very simple description and voilà, I got it.
On the D-day, I woke up very early like past 5 a.m and the time that was written on my JAMB slip was 6 a.m. I did my usual arrangement and I set out by 5 30 a.m with the hope of reaching there exactly by 6 a.m because I didn’t want to waste any time.
Surprisingly, when I alighted at the bus stop, the exam center was farther than he had peacefully explained. So, I had to trek, trek and trek and to God be the glory, there was even no bike.
To cut the story short, I got there late and the gate men were a bit furious but I pleaded, and when I got in, they were just about to commence writing. I was only lucky and now you see why I can never advise a candidate against knowing the exam venue before the main date. It will save you from the attached panicking and relax your mind peacefully with the sense of you being in control.
The main point is, know your exam center before the day you’re writing your exam.
2. Get to your Center at Least 25 Minutes Earlier:
I will advise you to get to your center very early at least like 25 minutes earlier to the actual exam time.
For example, if your exam is scheduled to commence by 7 a.m as indicated on your slip, prepare yourself to arrive at 6 35 a.m. The reason for this is for you to get some certain information about the center that are possible to have been passed before your arrival.

In fact, some “devilish” centers will commence their examinations earlier than the actual fixed time. Put yourself in a safe position and arrive earlier than they expect you to.
3. This is how the Question Format is and how Best to Answer them:
As it is usually set, you have 180
questions to answer in total in just two hours. 60 questions from Use of English and 40 questions each from other three subjects.
Save your time by answering the easiest questions first, am sure you must have been hearing this before. Focus on the easy ones first and then later, you can face the difficult questions later. This is very important so that you don’t waste your time.
4. Submit Your Finished Works Yourself:
Although there is no stated evidence of probable sanctions or malfunction when you allow the computer to automatically submit on your behalf but, I’ll still recommend that you submit your finished work yourself.
Make sure you answer all your question at least a minute before the given time elapses and then, click on the submit button yourself.
I reiterate, there is no stated evidence of probable sanctions or malfunction when you allow the computer to automatically submit on your behalf but, I’ll still recommend that you submit your finished work yourself.
5. You must Remember these Important Keys.
If you are making use of the keyboard, these important keys are indeed, important for you;
N – To move to the next question
P – To go back to the previous question
A – To select option A on a question
B – To select option B on a question
C – To select option C on a question
D – To select option D on a question
S – To submit your exam (Be Careful)
R – To Cancel Submit (and RETURN)
Nevertheless, these important keys I listed above will be clearly outlined for you before you commence your exam, wherefore it is advisable you carefully read the stated instructions.
6. Do not Forget to go With your JAMB Reprinted Slip to your Center.
Remember that the Board had earlier instructed that all candidates must submit a copy of their exam slip at the exam venue. So, make sure you don’t forget to take your slip along with you.
To be at a safer side, I’ll recommend you to set an alarm or a reminder on your phone prior to your departure from home so you won’t give the devil a forgetful chance.
In addition to these five tips I have listed above, make sure you check if there are installed CCTV cameras in the hall. If you notice some cameras are installed, concentrate on your work and do not do any collaboration with anybody.
In conclusion, make sure you do not come with any of these listed banned items to the examination hall because you won’t be allowed to enter.
OK. So that is the six tips I am giving you to help you during your UTME examination. I hope it has not been so boring to you so far.
