    Imagine you taking the JAMB form, with an incomplete SSCE result hoping you would be accepted or getting a space with your result, it is better you have the right result and battle the other, instead of fighting SSCE and trying to make JAMB, that is why SSCE has been made easy to get, before you graduate from high school you could sit for multiple SSCE, here you have NECO and GCE these are all exams you could take just to meet up. Even if you are out of school for a long time, GCE is an option to correct that bad result to qualify you for your next big step.

    So you have to verify that before you proceed, otherwise you probably might be wasting time. You can also check the school SSCE result requirements or visit the JAMB website to get that information.

  • Be seated at your registered sitting position, and prepare your computer as instructed.
  • Once your time starts ticking, flow with the timing, do not rush to the next, you have more than enough time to work, learn to manage your time.
  • Lastly, answer questions you can attempt, and come back to questions you might find difficult. This is not a wrong choice. Sometimes what you don’t know at that moment might come to you while you reflect on it, so attend to others.
  • Remember, you are timed, it is better you submit your answers and log out properly, do not leave any instructions unattended to. It is better to be safe than to be sorry.
