I can still recall that after sitting for my JAMB back in the days, I gave a two weeks break to relax and chill-off after which I had to dust off my old and rugged JAMB past questions in readiness to score a Hat-trick this time. I was still chilling off on the remaining few days of my break Period from reading and my Big brother called and behold, I scored #220 in my just concluded JAMB Exam.

I regretted that he knows my details at least I could have managed the information and not tell anyone. I couldn’t help my poor emotions so; I went home and straight to my Room.

“After the brags, this is what I was able to achieve”

Though I’ve covered the JAMB syllables in my respective textbooks, it occurred that each time I meet tough or tricky questions, I always referred to my textbooks after which I become more conversant with the trouble I met.

I continued making a friendship with my JAMB past questions in such a way that I started realizing how often JAMB repeats questions from year to year. But wait a minute!
