Common Mistakes in JAMB UTME Exam and How to Avoid Them

To perform well inside the JAMB UTME examination hall, you need to guard yourself against common mistakes. Some mistakes are so common among students during their JAMB/UTME examination but not many prepare well enough to combat it.

In this post, we take a look at some of these avoidable common mistakes during JAMB exams & how to avoid them.

1. Examination anxiety

This is the cause of most mistakes during the JAMB CBT examination. Exam fever grips many before their exams and consequently affects their performance in the examination.

2. Computer Based Test (CBT)

JAMB is no more paper and pencil examination. Some candidates who are not used to computers are kinda anxious about this whole CBT thing but, little did they know that JAMB computer-based test (CBT) is much easier and faster than paper and pencil.

Please, there is nothing to worry about JAMB being CBT. It is as easy as clicking next and previous or clicking a button to jump to a question number.

Even a baby in the womb can click a button. It’s ridiculously easy and intuitive enough. So, chill.

3. Health/Body or psychological state

Having no sleep the night or no food before going for the JAMB examination can contribute to the candidate making mistakes during the exam.

Please, make sure you sleep well the night before your JAMB examination so you can wake up the next day with a sound spirit, calm heart, sound mind and free of those “I want to sleep”.

4. Not ready for the exam
