How To Pass Jupeb
How To Pass Jupeb
The problem a lot of JUPEB students face is not knowing how to prepare for Jupeb examination and what they have to do to pass JUPEB exam.
Firstly, when I talk about Jupeb examination, I don’t mean the “JUPEB entrance exam” because that’s like a joke, but the JUPEB final examination that will determine if you will be given admission or not.
Over the years, I have come across a lot of JUPEB students and one thing is common between them, which is fear.
They fear for the unfavourable outcome of the JUPEB examination which often turns out to be very good.
If you want to pass the JUPEB examination, there are certain things you need to do that are very important.
Because you will agree with me that the way you prepare for JAMB examination is different from the way you prepare for WAEC examination, the same thing with the JUPEB exam.
There are proven methods that previous Jupeb students used and they always come back with a testimony.
Proven Ways To Effectively Prepare For JUPEB Examination
There are things very common with teachers at every level, which is, following the scheme of work religiously.
It is not different from what JUPEB students face. A lot of the JUPEB lecturers end up doing other things instead of teaching according to the scheme of work and the JUPEB syllabus.
So if you rely on what you are being thought alone, you won’t do well at your final exam.
Let’s see what you should do:
Give yourself enough time to study
You have to create enough personal study time because you can’t completely rely on what the lecturers are teaching.
However, this doesn’t in any way suggest that what they are teaching is wrong, it means you have to study more than what you are being taught.
In summary, putting extra effort and when doing this, you should follow the JUPEB syllabus.
As you already know, JUPEB programme is run by different universities but the questions to be asked on the final examination may not be what your lecturers have been teaching.
This is why you have to consciously create your personal study time so that you will not be caught unawares.
Furthermore, don’t leave your studies until the last minute.
While some students do seem to thrive on last-minute cramming, well, know yourself.
To help sort out your time management, set up a timetable for your study.
Write down all the subjects that you are offering and the days you have to read everything and digest it well.
You may want to give some courses more study time than others, so find a balance that you feel comfortable with.
Organize your study space
Don’t forget the amount of money you will or have spent so far on your JUPEB programme. You must never take passing the examination lightly at all.
Because there are a lot of persons that won’t be admitted after spending so much amount of money.
You have to strive to not just pass but getting your desired course by passing very well.
This is why you have to make sure you have enough space to spread your textbooks and notes out.
If you need a private tutor, you get one.
If your room is not comfortable for you or too comfortable, then locate somewhere more suitable for your reading.
Most students attend night classes and even form a study group which isn’t a bad idea but most times, it has several disadvantages.
You can leave a comment if you want to know the disadvantages of study groups for JUPEB students.
Furthermore, try and get rid of all distractions, and make sure you feel as comfortable and focus as possible.
For some people, this may mean almost complete silence, for others, background music helps.
While others may completely tidy and organized in order to concentrate, while others thrive in a more cluttered environment.
Think about what works for you, and take the time to get it right.
Practice on old exams
In fact, in everything you need to do, this is the most important of them all. Never neglect the use of past question no matter how tiring and frustrating it can be most times, it is very important.
I remember many years ago and even in my university days, I hated the use of past questions, and unnecessarily be wishing there was nothing like past questions.
When I was in 200L, there was a course I did that I was even teaching my mates but then, a day to the examination, one of my friends brought past questions of the course for me to help him solve.
I spent hours trying to solve the questions. I studied and even ask him to meet me in night class so I would try to solve it over the night before the exam.
We eventually solve the questions and behold, when we got into the exam hall, it was the very questions we have already solved.
My mate and I were the two persons that finished first and did extremely well in the course.
Honestly, if we had not tried the past question a day earlier, we would not have been able to solve those questions under the space of time given.
The use of past questions cannot be overemphasized when practising for any examination.
Explain your answers to others
Nobody is a fountain of knowledge. Never neglect others when preparing for JUPEB examination.
To retain knowledge, you must give it to someone. That’s how it works.
However, in doing this, don’t become annoying to others. Just get a friend who you share knowledge with, and you will be fine.
Furthermore, for those of you planning to come from home, parents and little brothers and sisters don’t have to be annoying around exam time.
Use them to your advantage. Explain an answer to a question to them.
That will help you to get it clear in your head, and also to highlight any areas where you need more work.
Organize study groups with friends
This is by choice anyway. It works best for people whose foundation are not so good.
If you fall in that category, get together with friends for a study session.
You may have questions that they have the answers to and vice versa.
As long as you make sure you stay focused on the topic for an agreed amount of time, this can be one of the most effective ways to challenge yourself.
Take regular breaks
While you may think it’s best to study for as many hours as possible, this can actually be counterproductive. If you were training for a marathon, you wouldn’t try and run 24 hours a day. Likewise, studies have shown that for long-term retention of knowledge, taking regular breaks really helps.
Everyone’s different, so develop a study routine that works for you. If you study better in the morning, start early before taking a break at lunchtime. Or, if you’re more productive at nighttime, take a larger break earlier on so you’re ready to settle down come evening.
Try not to feel guilty about being out enjoying the sunshine instead of hunched over your textbooks. Remember Vitamin D is important for a healthy brain.
Snack on brain food
You may feel like you deserve a treat, or that you don’t have time to cook, but what you eat can really have an impact on energy levels and focus, so keep away from junk food.
Keep your body and brain well-fuelled by choosing nutritious foods that have been proven to aid concentration and memory, such as fish, nuts, seeds, yogurt and blueberries.
The same applies on exam day – eat a good meal before the test, based on foods that will provide a slow release of energy throughout. Sugar may seem appealing, but your energy levels will crash an hour later.
Plan your exam day
Make sure you get everything ready well in advance of the exam – don’t leave it to the day before to suddenly realize you don’t know the way, or what you’re supposed to bring.
Check all the rules and requirements, and plan your route and journey time.
If possible, do a test run of the trip. If not, write down clear directions.
Work out how long it will take to get there – then add on some extra time.
You really don’t want to arrive having had to run halfway or feeling frazzled from losing your way.
You could also make plans to travel to the exam with friends or classmates, as long as you know they’re likely to be punctual.
Drink plenty of water
As a final tip, remember that being well hydrated is essential for your brain to work at its best. Make sure you keep drinking plenty of water throughout your revision, and also on the exam day.
Good luck with your JUPEB examination.
