How To Score Very High in Any Post Utme Exams.
1. Study with the Post UTME Past Questions.
Many aspirants do make the mistake of not studying with the past questions. You are only advice to study with the past questions of your aspiring school. When you know how your school sets questions, you will know how to approach and answer the questions with ease.
Post utme examinations in Nigerian Universities differ by difficulty and number of questions. Some set as low as 40 questions while others set as high as 200 questions.
The more the number of questions asked, the more the time frame, however, the time allocated to one question is usually not enough in any of the top Universities.
2. Constant Practicing of Past Questions.
Most students start reading a few days to their exams which is very wrong. This shows a sign of laziness and the zeal to fail. You are advised to practice your past question months before your exams so you can be familiar with the questions.
The more your practice and solve past questions, the more your answering speed builds up. This is because you would have already come across familiar questions before the post utme exam date. It will then be easier for you to answer the exam questions in no time.
3. Early Arrival on the Post UTME Exam Day
“The early bird they say, catches the worm”…. The earlier you are to the post utme venue, the more relaxed you are and the less anxiety you will encounter.
Students stop thinking about how prepared they are or how difficult the examination would be. In addition, stop thinking about the time frame.
Have a success mindset. Tell yourself, “this examination will be simple and I will answer everything in no time”. This will boost the confidence in you.
