Regular and timely reading is Paramount to your admission success, you can’t master the syllables in just a month or two weeks to the exam. Constant reading will get you very familiar with the topics and that is the only way you can perform well in the exam.
Practice The Past Questions And Answers
This is very important to your good performance in POST UTME. Most schools have adopted the method of recycling questions by lifting questions from previous years.
If you are practicing the past questions and answers, whenever you come across the same question you have seen before, it will be easy to recognize and the answer will be supplied without much stress.
Past Questions And Answers can also help you build speed and accuracy, POST UTME has two features which is accuracy and speed. It is highly timed and the system shutdown when your allotted time elapsed, if you don’t have the required accuracy and speed, you won’t be able to finish the questions.
Past questions and answers can aid your reading, whenever you meet a tough question, you can note it down and consult the textbook later on for a proper explanation. Continuing with this method will make your understanding of most of the topics easy.
You might have heard of how hard POST UTME has become these days and other stories which are scary, you don’t have to flinch because of this, every year thousands of people make it to the University and they are not aliens. You can also be like those successful students that make it.
All that is required of you is to be resilient, study regularly, and practice your past questions and answers. Set a target for yourself, it will be a reinforcing point for you because you will be wanting to meet that target.

Don’t Be Late
On the day of your examination, always try to be in the exam venue on time, don’t come late for lateness has a disadvantage.
The exam is meant to be written with peace of mind to aid the recovery of stored information from the memory.
If you arrive late, you will be subjected to questioning and other things that might instill pressure in you, this is very bad for such an exam that is competitively ridden.
Most of you who will be writing the exam will be coming from a far distance, don’t make the mistake of starting your travel on the day of the exam, you may not meet up with time because of unforeseen circumstances.
You should travel 2-3 days before the exam, it will buy you time to locate your exam venue, sort out other issues like accommodation, and give you time for revision. This is very stress-free and relaxation is important before such a task.
Proper Course Combination
It is very wise and necessary to check through the brochure for the subjects required in your chosen course.
Don’t choose subjects because you are good at it, always ensure that it is the right one to be written. Wrong subjects can limit your chances of getting that course you choose.
