Yes, you have to study very hard. Study past questions and answers for any school you wish to apply to. Study current affairs and other materials, study your secondary schools material and also know a lot of events that happened in Nigeria and its environs, in fact the world at large.

If you have not written any post utme exams before, going to the centre as early as possible will help to calm your nerves. Else, going late might make you feel down and overwhelmed as you will see lots of people you probably don’t know where they came from… Lol!
So, get to your venue as early as you can so you can get to the front seat, settle down and write the exams. When you go late, you might be sorting for your space while exams might probably start. In some schools like NDA, sometimes those who come late do not even get to write the exams at all. While UNILAG might pardon you, the military might not.
3 Get All Your Material For Exams Ready
You will need your application form, WAEC results together with your Jamb original result to sit for the post-JAMB examination. Also go with pencil, pen and erasers just in case, this is Nigeria after all. When you go to the exam venue, there are people who will probably help you to print any material you failed to print but it’s important you prepare ahead as this will save you the stress of being disorganized during exams.
4 Unless it is necessary, Do Not Go With Your Mobile Phone
You will not be allowed to use it, so why go with it? Many people who come for exams don’t just write and go, they stay around to pick stuffs and what better stuff to pick than mobile phones? If you will not be needing it, do not go with it because there has been complaints of people missing their phones almost every time there is an examination of this kind.
5 Do Not Be Afraid
Yes, you don’t have to fear at all. You will probably meet people who have gone to screening may be once or twice, they will probably talk and make some noise, who doesn’t like the hype? But do not be afraid, just stay focused and write your Post-utme exams, you will pass.
6 Practice Past Questions
We have stated this times without number but the importance of past questions cannot be over emphasized, getting a past question will not only help you prepare but you will get an idea to the kind of questions you are likely to encounter.
Finally and most importantly, you have to pray. If you don’t believe in prayers, no problem. But you have to pray for God’s grace, so you don’t fall victim of anything. Because if you are sent out of the exam, another exams will not be organised for you.
A student of a reputable institution in an interview with one of our editors, share some experience with us on how to pass any school post-utme in one sitting.
He shared his thought with us below, he says;
“Firstly, You have to source for past questions. This will give you hints on how the questions are structured and their combinations for whatever course you’re applying for. And if you’re smart enough, you will notice certain questions occur frequently and these questions are to be treated and mastered because I feel most higher institutions may not have the time to set new questions.
Secondly, I also remembered getting and studying some textbooks then to understand some questions I was finding very difficult to answer because of their ambiguity since they are all objectives and you know how objectives can be.
Thirdly, I also had to work on my speed and accuracy in answering this questions after studying. You sure don’t have the whole time to yourself.
Fourthly, This I regard as one of the most important of all. You have to get to the examination venue *very* early. Sometimes it is advisable, one travels down to a location very close to the examination venue a day before so as to be punctual and relax one’s mind and remove any form of tension during the examination.
Finally, motivate yourself and do you. You cannot be going to write any entrance exams without knowing you subject combinations and having at least 65% knowledge of the subject you are writing and beat the schools post-utme cut off mark.
You can’t pass with an empty brain so you need to read, and re read… While preparing for any exams ,you need rest, yes I wasn’t stressing my head or myself to much so that worked And lastly I motivated myself, I knew my abilities and didn’t stress much.
