Unlike how many articles out there make it seem, it is not easy to get 350 in the JAMB exam (UTME). For you to achieve this, your preparation would have definitely started more than a year before the test.
In light of this, in this article, we will share with you how to score 350 in UTME (or any other high score). Please bear in mind that the exam is close.
How To Score 350 In JAMB UTME 2020
To get a high score in JAMB UTME you should always remember that the organization of the examination has changed. As a result of this, you should prepare your mind for that. For example, JAMB now uses CCTV to monitor candidates during examinations. Hence, of you are someone who does not work well under monitors like that, you might have a problem. This might sound funny but there are actually people like that.
With this in mind, here are FOUR things you can still do before the JAMB exam date in order to ace it.
Use the current JAMB Syllabus
When you are preparing for the exam, make sure you use the prescribed textbooks. If you check the latest JAMB syllabus, you would see the textbooks JAMB wants you to use for preparation. These are the texts they should also use for you in schools to treat right topics in the syllabus.
Please make sure you use copies of the latest JAMB syllabus if you plan to score high in the JAMB 2020 UTME.
JAMB repeats questions a lot. Therefore, preparing with past questions will let you have an idea of the kind of questions JAMB repeat every year. You don not have to cram anything since they will likely change figures or twist the question a bit.
For example, a question can ask you to calculate the velocity of a man who covers 100 meters in 10 seconds. In this case, you use the formula velocity = distance/time, which gives you 100/10 = 10m/s. In another year, they might change the figures to 150 meters and 5 seconds. Alternatively, they can give you the value for velocity and time and ask you to calculate the distance.
So, use past questions to prepare if you want to score 350 in UTME.
Practice Tests + Mock Exam
Sometimes people do not pass exams not because they did not know answers to the questions but because they did not know how the exam would look. If you you practise with original practice tests by JAMB, you can familiarise yourself with the exam format and timing. This can help you determine if you are too slow and need to better manage your time in the real exam.
In the same vein, you can determine how long you have to sit while writing the UTME. Some candidates are not used to sitting at a single spot for a long time. As a result of this, they will get frustrated and restless when they have to sit for hours writing JAMB UTME.
The JAMB Mock Exam can help you prepare for this. It simulates the real exam that you will eventually write. Of course, the questions will not be the same. See JAMB Mock exam date here.
Practise with Computers
Finally, make sure you play around with computers. Get used to working with computers – how to use keyboards, the mouse, get your clicking right and so on. Some candidates will fail because they are nervous around computers while others. You can even find JAMB CBT software that you can download to your computer and practise with it.
These are some of the steps you need to take to have a high score in JAMB UTME. You can get from 200 to 250 to 300 to 350, it all depends on your preparation and conduct in the actual exam.
We wish you all the best!!!
