JAMB has gradually become the most feared name in the education sector of Nigeria and preparing for the examination is something that demands a lot of time, commitment, discipline, and hard work.

I have never seen anyone perform outstandingly in JAMB or in any other thing worthwhile without putting together these three things apart from those that engage in examination malpractice which is something that is usually regretted in a thousand and one ways in the future.

Let us discuss eight straight-forward steps you can take to prepare yourself for JAMB. As easy to mention as these steps are, I must say that the simplicity ends there, in practice, they are actually difficult but are very practical steps that every outstanding student I’ve ever met practiced in their own way to overcome JAMB in their time.

Step 1: Ensure you know the JAMB score you need and decide on the score you want.
You must make sure you find out the average score you need in JAMB with your subject combination to nail your desired course in the institution you want.

This average score can be deduced from the minimum normal cut-off mark for JAMB that will qualify for post-UTME for that course and in the institution as well as the previous cut-off marks set by the institution that will qualify you for admission by merit. As you read this now, make your research and write that average score down. This will help you know the minimum mark you should work towards.

After you must have done that, the next thing is to decide on the score you want. The score you want should be different from what you need, actually it should be higher. The problem of many students is that they don’t even know the score they need talk less of the score they should want to work towards while preparing for JAMB.

These students after writing JAMB then begin to make this research after which they now start praying to God to give them that score. God does not bless those kinds of efforts. Some students still do not even find out the needed score or cut-off mark until their result is out. I understand that sometimes JAMB and various schools change their cut-off marks sometimes depending on the general performance of students but you can always make a safe assumption to work with from previous cut-off marks.

Setting a higher target is a principle in line with the saying that says “you should shoot for the stars, for you never know, you may land on the moon”. When you set a high and reasonable target – what I mean by reasonable is achievable; some students set targets of ‘398’ which is quite unreasonable – you’ll most likely get something very close to it, if not exactly.

A target above 300 is high enough to spur you to action. Once you have fixed your target score, distribute it to your four subjects according to your strengths. For instance:

My target score for JAMB: 315

Use of English: 75

Mathematics: 80

Physics: 85

Chemistry: 75
