Things To Do To Score Above 300 In UTME                               

For many candidates, high jamb scores above 300 are almost impossible, except if they are brilliant or write the exams in a special centre. However, this is not true. An average student who applies the proper technique can easily score above 300 in UTME without external help.

Thankfully, the management of JAMB has put in specific measures to curtail examination malpractice in almost all the examination centres in the country. Therefore, it is the responsibility of every student to put in their best efforts to ensure success in their UTME.

The following are things you must do to score above 300 in your JAMB this year:

Early Preparation:

Score above 300 in UTME

This is a crucial factor. You must begin your preparations for the examinations very early. This will ensure that by the time the UTME comes around, you must have covered every single detail you need to. A saying goes, “Early preparation ensures best performance”.

You have to register for the examinations early and begin other necessary preparations that will be listed as you read further. This will ensure you are not too anxious or worried when your examination date comes around.

Early preparations give an aura of confidence. You walk into the hall with the assurance that you have done everything on your own end, and the tension will be much lower for you than for someone who starts preparations a few weeks before the examination.

Develop a good reading timetable:

This is another major thing you must do. Before you begin reading properly, draw up a reading timetable to cover all the courses. One mistake many UTME candidates make is to read haphazardly without any sort of reading discipline.

Studying only one subject for a long time without paying much attention to other subjects is strongly discouraged!

Every UTME candidate is expected to write four subjects. The subject combination depends on the course you are applying for. For instance, a candidate applying for Medicine and Surgery must write English, Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

The study timetable should reflect a balance between these subjects every week. The subject with which you encounter much difficulty should be allocated greater reading time, but other subjects must not be neglected.

I highly recommend reading at least one subject a day. Depending on your schedule, you must squeeze out at least four (4) hours every day to prepare for your exams. This will help you cover most areas of the syllabus before the UTME comes around.

For one who intends to score above 300, it is important to read all listed texts in the JAMB brochure. Before every UTME exam each year, JAMB releases a brochure indicating recommended texts and the syllabus every candidate is expected to cover. This is to guide candidates in their preparations.

You are expected to cover all the topics listed in the syllabus for each subject. The recommended texts will help you cover all the topics within the preparation timeframe. You could also get additional texts to help you understand each subject adequately.

Be disciplined and Focused:

Reading demands discipline. If you must achieve success, then you must be disciplined. Success is bought with the currency of hard work, and as such, you must put in your best. Discipline helps you sit in a place and cut off distractions whenever you are reading.

 When it is time for reading, you must curtail every distraction and pay attention to your actions. Keep phones away, find a quiet study place and read well.

When you draw up a reading timetable, follow it diligently to ensure balanced preparations across all subjects.

Practice UTME Past Questions and CBT:

Practice UTME Past Questions and CBT

JAMB is known to repeat past questions every year. You have to buy a comprehensive past questions compilation for each subject and read through the questions there. Then, try to answer the questions on your own and evaluate yourself. This will help you very well as you prepare for the exams.

Also, download Computer-Based Test (CBT) apps on your smartphone and prepare for the exams with them. Improve your speed and accuracy with each test you take. This will help you get into the mindset needed to write the exams and score above 300.

Set Specific Targets:

As you prepare for your examination, you must set realistic and specific targets. This will enable you to program your mindset to work hard to meet such targets and goals.

You can have a target of 350+ in your exam. This will help you concentrate more on putting in the right amount of hard work.

Be confident in yourself:

On the day of the UTME, you must shun every negative thought that diminishes your confidence. As you have adequately prepared for the examinations, you must be confident in your ability to deliver. This high self-esteem is the best mindset before sitting for the exams.

However, you must not be overconfident or proud. As the saying goes, “Pride goes before a fall.” You have to be calm and humble, even in your confidence. It will help you stay focused and motivated.

Shun Examination Malpractice:

Eliminate every thought of examination malpractice from your mind as you prepare for your UTME. This will reduce your self-confidence, and it can lead to several disastrous consequences.

You can be arrested, prosecuted and imprisoned for examination malpractice. JAMB demands that you write your examination yourself without external help from anywhere.

Follow all instructions:

You must also follow all instructions given on the day of your exams. It makes no sense to be disobedient to the JAMB officials as it can induce reprimands, which is unsuitable for your exam mindset.

Read all instructions carefully and select the correct options for every question:

Before answering any questions, ensure that you read all questions carefully. Be time-conscious, but do not rush through your questions. Your preparation is expected to give you an idea of the right amount of time to spend on each question; therefore, you do not have to spend too much time on each question.

Ensure that you select the correct option for each question. Every question is important, so do not joke with any. You must ensure that you return to the skipped questions to provide answers before your time runs out.

Ensure to provide an answer to every question. There is no negative marking in UTME!

Submit carefully and be optimistic:

Before your time runs out, ensure that you submit your exam. After providing the correct answers to all questions, submit and leave the hall. Be positive, but do not brag or boast. Just be humble and calm about your success after the examinations.

I am optimistic that if you apply all the tips in this article, you will meet your target of scoring above 300 in your UTME. I wish you good luck in your examinations.
