Taking you through the life and saddles of my time from being a jambite through being a tutor-to being an examiner and finally data entry officer of JAMB UTME past questions. Experience they say, is the best teacher, but in my opinion, experience is examination first, then the lesson.
The secret to be exposed in this text has been gathered across several experiences shared from over 500 JAMB UTME Students whom I have tutored, more than five JAMB UTME mock exams that I have conducted and more than 15,000 JAMB UTME questions that I have compiled. I believe that this stratified data is enough to justify these 3 hidden JAMB UTME secrets.
SECRET 1: YOU CAN SCORE AT LEAST 100 DOING NOTHING.
Playing around with software like Avalanche PK student version has exposed me to this first secret. Just by random selection on Avalanche PK student version, it exposed that you can score at least 100 just by random shading/ selection.
SECRET 2: SCORE 30% in Use of English attempting just 15 questions.
Comprehension passages are given the highest rank/point in JAMB UTME use of English with 3 point assigned to each question. Furthermore, you are expected to attempt 3 comprehension passages making it 45 points in total.
SECRET 3: NO NEGATIVE MARKING IN JAMB UTME
Having looked through many of JAMB’s official publications including news announcement, there’s has not been any public statement on JAMB’s declaration on the use of negative marking. If it has not been declared why, the rumour? My honest opinion, the probability of choosing the right answer 1s 25%, so go for it, you may be right
Finally, Nay, I said 3 secret, okay may be bonus. Exam is not all about God, it’s more of God through you. So, read like God never exists and pray as if exam is all about God. Really, if you want to know how to prepare effectively for JAMB UTME, I recommend these articles for you.
