11 Good Reasons Why Students Fail JAMB.

The Joint Administration and matriculation board has remain a major exams body conducting Universities matriculation examinations (UTME) in all the states of the federal republic of Nigeria. Since her inception, it has been many people’s Achilles hill as they can’t dance to the tune of the exams.

To worsen the whole case, post-UTME that gave students the second chance of getting admission was scrapped out by President Muhammedu Buhari led administration and JAMB was made the only exams body which conducts examinations for those going to the higher institutions.

In order to remain on the safe side, and increase their chances of succeeding, there are certain things which every student could do to emerge successfully in the exams.  I bet you, if any candidates can avoid common mistakes attributed to jamb, then success could be theirs.

Reasons Why Students Fail JAMB

Here are 11 good reasons why students fail Jamb

1. Failure to follow the syllables

Jamb syllables have been a veritable tool in the hand of students seeking admission into higher institution. Research has shown that 90 percent of those that excel in Jamb are those who study the syllables comprehensively.

We strongly recommend all candidates to have a take a look at the syllabus for every subject they registered. Pay attention to the subjects you’re anticipated to master and let it guide your studies. This way, you’ll spend no time reading things which are irrelevant to the examination.

Many students have recorded successesin their UME exams because of the adamant study of the syllable.

2. Laisez-faire attitude towards Brochure:

The syllables has been a helpful tool, but many students have dispute the facts that the brochure is another veritable tool for which students can  use to scale through the hurdles of jamb. Studnets preparing for UME have neglected the study of the brochure.  Some register to study a course blindly which may not be offered by their choice university.

Candidates are advised to study the brochure carefully before filling the jamb online registration slip. This will also be a guide on a way to fill the Jamb utility form, help you in making perfect preference of the courses you are intellectually suited.

3. Poor study habits

The word student only comes from the word study. You may follow the brochure and strictly adhere to the registration processes of Jamb, but the truth remains that academic excellent solely depend on veheminent study of your texts books and other recommended books in the syllables.

The ultimate thing to do while preparing for UME exams is to study. A good number of student give the excuse of being so busy, hitherto they can’t study. No matter the tight schedule of a candidate, it is adviceable for a candidate to create time for effective studies.  It will also be advantageous for a candidiate to enroll in extra-moral classes.

4. Failure to register JAMB in time

Time waits for no man- is a popular adage. Tick says the clock tick tick is another adage.  The fact that Jamb offers enough time for its registration is not a ground for candidates to register late for the exams.  Procrastinating to register on time has caused a whole lot of failure in JAMB UME examinations.

Here is how late registration affects candites:

Candidates are given unconducive/unequipped centers.

Some are slated for rural areas for the exams and guess what!

These can cause candidtes to fail.

5. Lack of Speed:

Candidates who apply speed speed in the exams do emerge successfully. JAMB UME examination is not an exams for babies, but for matured minds whob are ready to face the other world of the university. The examiners give a very limited time of about 40 minuites. However, this time waits for no ,man as it ticks every seconds.

Don’t forget this:

You can’t pause the time to do one thing or the order, like having a convenient or answering to the attendance. The time goes very fast and stops automatically for everyone. Whether you came to the exams venue late.

Did you know that intelligent students still fail Jamb?

Yes! Not because they are not intelligent, but because they do not apply speed.

6. Failure to arrive at the exams venue early

Tears droped from her eyes, I could remember vividly she was a girl, tall and she spoke intelligently. All her tears was in vain, all her pleas was wasted as the invigilator was so tenacious in his decision. Futher findings revealed that she was the best in her secondary school who made history by recording 9A’s in the west African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE ), but on that faithful day she was late to her UME exams. That was how she failed JAMB.

It is so obvious that many candidates are seen doing some print out on their exams day and this warrant their lateness to exams. It is adviseable for candidates to do all necessary things prior to the day of their exams.  If your exams center is in a long distance or in another state, try to be there atleast a day before and get to know your center.

7. Computer illiteracy

Yes we are in a computer a computer age where computer and other computer related devices are easily accessd, yet computer illiteracy still rocks among young school leavers. Since 2014, Jamb had progressed from the rostrum of PPT to the rostrum of CBT which made way for the utilization of computers for  the exams.

It is appaling that many candidates still cannot operate this computers during exams and thereby failure comes in. It is adviceable for can didates to undergo Computer Base Training before  the day of their exams.

8. Incomplete materials

Yes, this has possed a problem to many candidates. The exams day is like an injury period which a simple mistake can hurt for life. Before departing for the exams hall check out for your materials such as Jamb print out, Passports etc. Read the necessary instructions and adhere to it. Where you are to bring a colour print-out please don’t bring a black and white print out.

9. Deafness to attendance

You must be all ears while writing your exams. Are you writing with your ears? Of course not, so candidates have to pay adequate attention to attendance while writing the exams.  Your attendance indicates your present in the exams and failure to answer to it means that you did not write the exams.

10. Unconducive/unequipped exams center

One major thing that poses a threat to JAMB in Nigeria is their poor and unequipped exams environment. These  have  pose a psychological effect on many students. The progression from PPT (Paper and pencil test) to CBT (Computer Base Test) has not change Jamb’s poor Examination Environment.

11. Misinformation

Many students are misinform about  Jamb exams. They are given fake information which has no relationship to the afore mentioned exams. It is a known facts that  are many myths and conceptions surrounding the exams and the exams body. All this should me taken with a pinch of salt as many of them are rumors and not facts.
