Prospective candidates seeking admission to tertiary institutions have been counselled on how to pass the University Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). Particularly students desiring to pursue courses that require high scores like Medicine, Paramedical courses, Engineering, Law, Architectural design and others, an online platform and its respondents have proffered solutions.
According to the platform, the first and effective strategy is to prepare, study and practise questions.
Efforts can also be made to download Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) CBT software where you will have access to about 60,000 JAMB past questions and answers, explanatory and video lessons.
Also, candidate must know how to manage their times so that they can answer all the four subjects before the time elapsed.
For majority of respondents who gave their views they say they would rather prefer to attempt their simplest subject before any other subject that appear difficult for them or where they are weak, while others believe in attempting to tackle first the most difficult subject for them.
But for Asher Success, she believed when you pray before starting, you will beat JAMB.
However, both Haruna Rita and Aremu Samuel preferred to tackle English first ahead of other subjects.
It will be recalled that JAMB has brought the UTME forward to April 25. The Board just conducted its mock exam where it faced hitches blamed on innovation. However, the result of the mock exam have been released.
