How to Score High in Post UTME
Without wasting your time, see the secrets below;
1. Know Your Aspiring School Post UTME/Screening Method of Post UTME and Setting Questions:
It’s very important to know your school’s method for post utme. Know where their previous questions were gotten from. Know what their past questions look like. These things will enable you to know exactly what the exam will look like.
Most schools will ask you questions based on your UTME subjects. While others like FUNAI might ask you questions about Maths, English, and current affairs.
Also make sure you know if your school admission screening is either oral/interview screening, Computer Based Examination (CBE), Paper Based Examination (PPE), or any other method of screening.
For those who don’t know what their questions and post utme looks like, just ask us using the comment box below and please state your aspiring course and school. We promise to answer your question as soon as we can.
2. Revise your School Post UTME Past Questions:
Although it seems like we said this in the previous point, we are making it a topic on its own because of its great importance. Make sure your practice your aspiring school post utme past questions. This will really help you reduce tension in the exam hall.
In UNN for example, their aspirants writing literature in English were asked questions from novels of 1980’s. Normally aspirants writing that subject will think their questions will come out from recent novels.
Even if it means buying the past questions, just get it! And make sure you’re not reading fake past questions. That’s the worst thing you can do.
3. Read your Textbooks, Notebooks, and Listen to News:
In those days when I was an aspirant, I was a victim of this particular point. Every time I want to read I will just pick my school post utme past questions and start answering them. I even went on cramming the questions. To me if I can cram all the post utme past questions, then am a boss.., I will give the examiner assignment.. they must award me a scholarship (lol).
That wasn’t the case. Though I didn’t fail the exam, my score wasn’t that encouraging. My dear, learn from my experience.
Don’t just read your school post utme past questions, read your textbooks, and notebooks (the ones you got from classes and/or lessons.
Aside from reading the above, listen to the news. Be current on the happenings in Nigeria. For example, President Buhari on Wednesday, 6th June 2018, changed the date for democracy day. Some schools will ask questions like, “What’s the new date for Democracy day in Nigeria? Ans: June 12th.
Also, read the updated current affairs. Some schools ask your question from this category. Like we said earlier, if you want to know what to prepare for your school post utme, then ask us using the comment box below.
4. Don’t Procrastinate, Start Reading Now!
Procrastination according to Cambridge English Dictionary is the act of delaying something that must be done, often because it is unpleasant or boring.
Procrastination can be deadly because it makes you think there’s still time…and boom! your exam is the next day! Don’t procrastinate again. pick your books and start reading now!
5. Don’t forget to Pray & Play.
Anybody that will advise you to just read without praying and playing, must be hiding something from you. You can’t just kill yourself with reading ooo., (lol).
Make sure you play but DON’T overdo it., play indoor games like LUDO, ‘WHOT’, etc, play outdoor games like Table tennis, football, skipping, running, etc, depending on the one that fits you! But like we said, don’t OVERDO IT, DON”T OVER PLAY!
On the prayer factor, please please pray before and after reading, GOD is the BOSS, he blesses our efforts and makes us excel when we beg him to do so.
6. Stay Informed with News From Your School and JAMB
This point is important, you might be ready to score high in the post utme but when you’re not informed on the latest news in your school, you tend to maybe miss your exam, miss some helpful information, get defrauded, etc.
We, therefore, advise you to get informed, Don’t miss any information from your school.
