In view of this competitiveness, you should adopt the following tips that will be discussed here so you can come out in flying colors from this exam.
How Can I Pass FUGUS Post UTME 2020?
Some students after seeing their JAMB score and it is high will say to themselves that they have arrived and relaxed without making effort to augment their JAMB score.
Let me bring to your notice that many persons are coming for this exam, those who didn’t score high in JAMB will be trying to put up a better score, also remember that Post UTME is the most determining factor in getting admission.
It will be against the record not to perform well in Post UTME while you had a good grade in JAMB.
The only way to surmount this task is by following these tips, it will help to make you perform wonders in this exam.
Consider it as evidence-based research that many successful candidates have followed and done well.
Understand The Nature Of The School’s Post UTME.
Every school has it’s own style when it comes to Post UTME, it is nice to unravel this style that the school adopts for the Post UTME exam.
This will give you leverage over it and also give you insight into what you should be expecting on that day.
Some schools might not follow the general method of setting questions for the 4 subjects you took in the jamb, they might opt for just English, Maths, and general knowledge.
Having this idea will help you to read in line with their method.
You can get this information by accessing the school’s past questions and answers, this material will tell you to know how they set their questions, a number of questions to be answered and the time limit.
It will help keep you on guard and prepare you for the task ahead.
If you are ignorant of this information, you will just go on that day to meet questions strange to you.
Reading alone is not the ultimate but are you reading what you are supposed to read, are you following the guide on possible questions.
This is the only way that you can come out of this exam with a smiling face.
Read Your Textbooks And Listen To News.
Textbook or notebooks is where the explanation to so many topics is lurking, reading them, will help you in mastering the topics.
A textbook is Paramount to your exam success, don’t rely on just past questions and answers, things might change and the old style of recycling questions won’t be adopted.
Always try to read regularly and keep your brain abreast with some of these topics, this single act will give you a whole lot of confidence for the exam, you won’t be jittery of the situation.
Try to listen to News and read current affairs, for some of the school’s that do set general knowledge questions, it is only through the above-mentioned outlet that you can get acquainted and be able to give the answer correctly.
Attend Tutorial Classes.
Tutorial Classes otherwise known as a lesson is highly recommended for an average student. You can’t understand most of the topics on your own.
Some of these topics require practical examples to be assimilated and you who are just a starter can’t do it on your own.
Take advantage of the numerous lesson centers littered here and there and help yourself, it will also pitch you against other students making you sit up.
Because seeing others being so serious and answering questions in class will also motivate you to do more on your own to match up.
Try not to follow the bandwagon when you attend these tutorial classes, some persons there are not actually coming to learn, rather they are coming to show off, do well to focus attention on your goal which is to score high in your Post UTME exam.
Examination especially that of Post UTME is not something to be approached with pressure, you need a relaxed mind, why do I say this? Some students make the mistake of arriving late for their examination.
They might not have wanted it but because of some unforeseen circumstances, they arrive late.
It is recommended that you make your travel to the examination venue before the day of the exam, let me say 2-3 days considering the distance.
When you arrive early, you will sort out some issues like exam Hall, you don’t need to be galloping around on that day trying to get to your exam Hall, finding it on time gives peace of mind.
Know The Right Subjects To Write.
Each course has specific subjects that are directly related to it and is recommended by JAMB for you to take in order to be qualified for such course of study.
Making wrong subject combination can be detrimental, I have seen a case where a student after applying for a particular course and getting it, got disqualified by the department because she didn’t write biology in Post UTME.
It is necessary to find out which subjects are required of you to write.
Also try to know the nature of the course you applied to, know the cut-off mark, and check if you stand a chance of getting admitted.
For e.g, if you are applying for Medicine but scored 180 in JAMB, you should know that the odds are very for you to beat.
My candid advice will be for you to change course and apply to a related course.
Most schools do allow change of course after the first year of study, so have it in mind that you can still land that your dream course if you are very Kean for it.
