JAMB and POST UTME are an integral part of your education after secondary school. They are that platform through which you transit from high school education to higher education. To gain a high score, pass the exams with flying colours, and ultimately gain admission, you'll need a study schedule that'll help you make the most of your time and aid assimilation.

It's commonplace for examination candidates who want to pass JAMB/POST UTME to sign up for lessons that cater for these exams in their respective locations. Whilst this is a viable option for university aspirants to learn with, we know everyone is not privileged with the time to attend these types of lessons.

Some post senior secondary school students in Nigeria have got little sponsorship and have to involve themselves in some kind of work or craft to make ends meet.

Be that as it may, if you're a university aspirant sitting for UTME/POST UTME soon, you're at the right place. If you've already signed up for some jamb lessons in your location, you can still take advantage of the study information in this article.

We will deliberate study resources and practices that candidates can leverage to imbibe enough knowledge of the subjects in their forthcoming examination.

Read on some tips and resources for home study for your exams.

Effective Homework Methods for JAMB & POST UTME

If you're serious about passing your exams, it's imperative to make homework a habit, and you don't have to be assigned homework at some lesson to do so. You can assign homework to yourself using your study books, a challenge that will develop you cognitively.

The following guide will help you prepare in this regard:

Follow a Schedule

Following a schedule for homework makes them even more effective. For instance, if you're assigned homework after a lesson or have assigned one to yourself, you can set two hours after dinner to tackle the homework.

Otherwise, you can opt to do your homework in the early hours of the morning. The important thing is to find a time that works best for you and stick to that time when doing your homework.

Avoid Distractions

One of the greatest undoings of Nigerian SS3 students seeking admission is doing study work in an environment laden with noise. I mean, the continual sounds of music, persons or whatever noise that there is will steal away your concentration.

Also, studying in a quiet place comes with many perks. If getting a noise-free environment is a challenge and worse comes to worst, tackle your homework late into the night/midnight.

Approach each subject with a different method

It's no secret that in other to get a great result in your exam, you must prepare for different subjects with different methods. For instance, tackling theoretical subjects like Government with textbooks while tackling maths via problem-solving exercises is a no-brainer.

Organize the Most Challenging Subjects to Come First.

You don't want to have a field day doing that easy subject only to end up with the herculean one just when you're exhausted and need a rest. Always tackle the courses you enjoy and find easy last.

Take Short Breaks In-between Sessions

Whilst some SS3 students in Nigeria could study all day long, doing even a meagre 2 hours straight could cause breakdowns for some. Do well to take 5/10 minutes breaks in between reading sessions to take a walk or indulge in a fun activity.

Books to Study for JAMB and POST UTME

United Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), which is often referred to as JAMB in various schools, uses a pretty straightforward curriculum that helps in choosing the study books to prepare with. On the other hand, POST UTME is pretty multifaceted and, therefore, depends on the school the candidates applied to for admission.

Be that as it may, if you need to gain admission to your first-choice institution, the following study books will give you a soft landing in your examination:

JAMB UTME Past Questions

Students are encouraged to read their books thoroughly and understand every topic in each subject's textbook. Whilst this is a good practice that instils discipline and helps students to be deeply rooted in any given subject or course, the truth is you can pass your JAMB UTME exam just by reading and studying questions & answers from the previous year.

This method works if you're seeking a result that sits between "good & very good score", and not necessarily excellent. Therefore, you'd fare better reading your textbooks thoroughly if you seek to pass your exams with an excellent result.

For past questions, it's recommended that you read them, as well as the answers, from JAMB's inception up to date. Surely, you'll come across some questions more than once un-paraphrased, but the repetitiveness of the question & answers will help you know them at heart should they come out.

Here are some techniques to help you perform excellently in your WASSCE.

Essential Textbooks Series

The Essential series from TONAD covers various subjects and touch down on all the meat from the JAMB syllabus. There is Essential Biology, Essential Agriculture, Essential Economics, etc. These books were written with senior secondary school students in mind, as well as JAMB & POST UTME candidates.

Additionally, they are concise, intelligible, and each can be covered in 2–4 weeks, in contrast to months in schools. If you've got less time to prepare and would prefer Textbooks in summarized forms, you should read the Key Points Series instead. For example:

  • Key Points in Biology
  • Key Points in Literature
  • Key Points in Commerce
  • key Points in Chemistry

POST UTME Past Questions

As there are books for JAMB past questions, there are also books for POST UTME past questions. If you're sitting for POST UTME imminently, your best bet is to ask for some from students or alumni of your choice school.

You can apply the same method you used in studying JAMB UTME past questions for your schools POST UTME.

Here is an article on JAMB/Post UTME made easy for students. 

Useful Websites for JAMB and POST UTME Examinees

We live in a digital age wherein most people spend more time on their phones than on anything else. If you're like this and will need to make the most of the time spent on your smartphone, tablet, or laptop, you should visit the following websites often to keep abreast of your studies and important information about your exam and school.

MySchool

MySchool is a popular website that updates Nigerian students about examinations in various institutions across Nigeria. On the website is a section where you can go through past questions from JAMB the previous year and test yourself with them.

What makes that of MySchool stand out however is that with each answer you pick right or wrong, there is a concise explanation beneath for the answer. This will help ensure you understand a similar or related question in your forthcoming exam.

TestDriller

TestDriller is an app that functions similarly to JAMB CBT. It's easy to practice with the app, and if you're a nubcake candidate, it will help you learn the ropes of the computer-based test of JAMB. Interestingly, the app covers all UTME subjects.

Home Academic Support for JAMB & POST UTME Students

If you've exhausted all learning options and don't seem to be making any headway in your JAMB preparations or institution POST UTME, your best bet is to find academic support from a tutor. This is an exceptionally ideal option if that mathematics homework keeps proving difficult and you seem lost.

Speaking of academic support, there are many ways to go about this, one of which is seeking help from a fellow high school student or aspirant who's versed in your target subject or course.

It's a pleasure for some aspirants to tutor their colleagues in a course, as this practice helps them refresh their memories. It's a win-win situation for both parties.

Otherwise, you can hire the services of a private tutor if you can cover the bills. Academic tutors in Nigeria are much easier to find today, thanks to SuperProf, an online academic hub that connects students with professionals in their respective courses or areas of learning.

This means you can find a tutor for that subject that proves difficult, be it physics, literature, or mathematics; there's a dedicated tutor for each subject or course on SuperProf.

How to Contact a SuperProf Tutor

On Superprof, picking a tutor for your target course is as easy as plucking a flower from a garden. All you have to do is browse through the list of professional tutors in your selected category and opt for the person whose profile and work history appeals to you the most.

After this, you're allowed to pick from three learning options with your choice tutor. You can opt to have your lessons online, at your tutor's home/office, or, most importantly, in your own house.

Online learning is the preferred option for most examination candidates, as not only is it effective, it is also convenient for both students and their tutors. For instance, learning wouldn't be deterred if your preferred tutor isn't within your location.

The online lessons are held via video conferencing programmes such as Skype, Zoom, or FaceTime. With a good internet connection and your laptop or smartphone, you should be up and running online.

Lastly, the cost of lessons, whether online or physical, falls within the range of ₦500 to ₦5,000, depending on your choice of tutor. Interestingly, your Superpof tutor will offer you a first-time free lesson, one that you can take advantage of to appraise their teaching methods and discuss with them your challenges in any course.
