How to Use Past Question Papers Effectively

Getting past questions is never an automatic ticket to passing this examination and perhaps being listed on the admission list. You must sit down, spend your time studying, and also study wide as well. The questions may not come directly as found on this question papers, which is the reason we advise you to study from both ends. However, We have supplied the answers to these questions on the last pages of this document. You can use your textbooks to confirm the answers if you wish.

Tips and Tricks to Pass This Screening Examination

Like we said, it will be quite competitive, and making it through will be more than difficult given the number of persons vying for it. However, we have mapped out a few tips and tricks to help guide you.

1 Watch Out For Reshuffled Questions 

Do exams panel or screening committee get tired of setting new questions? Maybe no will be the answers. But do questions repeat themselves? Yes, on so many occasions questions do come exactly how they were in years gone by. Meanwhile, we are not asking you to go and cram questions into your head and hide anything to support yourself but you have to take note of repeated questions if you can. In the compilation we will send to you, it consists of years past, so you can sit down to go over it as many times as you can.

2 Show Confidence Like You Know What Are About Doing

Do you call it exam phobia? Honestly, I have never had such, in as much as I know exactly what I’m going in for. Most candidates sweat all over the body while in the examination center and I wonder exactly what they are going through. A little research I and my team back then in school had to carry out to see exactly what could prompt this shows; On most occasions is lack of confidence. They know exactly what to do but the ability to sit down and execute it lies the problem.

3 Avoid Being Distracted

The ability to keep focus can determine so much in examinations. From personal experience, the inability to keep focus can even be worst than not knowing what to write. This is the main reason each examination hall is made to be as comfortable as it can be. In the case of being distracted by fellow students, weel, this is an almost natural occurrence in the Nigerian system. Unluckily you may be sent out of the exams hall. People have been this trap before and it could be as painful as anything else.

4 Try To Merch Speed with Perfection

You and I know how little the timing for post UTME examinations are. Calm down and get it right is always the watchword; but imagine answering 50 questions out of 100. The chances are, you may score 45 given how brilliant you are, but is it enough to scale through? No. So try showing a good pace while also doing the right thing.

6 Check Back and Fourth Before Concluding 

Lastly, make sure you go all over again before submitting your answer sheets to avoid kiddy mistakes. Like in no. 4, matching speed with accuracy can be very difficult, so I will always advise that you check back before submission.
