1. Inability To pick The Right Course:
I once gave a list here, on courses You May regret picking In Jamb 2018, most people Didn’t Understand the purpose Of the post, I Still Stand on my views though. Failure is almost inevitable when you pick the wrong course let me tell you a story.
”WHEN I WAS ABOUT TO REGISTER FOR JAMB,YEARS BACK THERE WAS A LOT OF PRESSURE ON ME TO PICK MEDICINE AND SURGERY,BUT KNOWING WITHIN MYSELF OF MY MATHEMATICAL PROWESS AND MY DISLIKE FOR BIOLOGY AND TO SOME EXTENT CHEMISTRY.
I STOOD MY GROUND AND PICKED MECHANICAL ENGINEERING, MY OTHER FRIEND WENT AHEAD AND PICKED A COURSE HE WASN’T GOOD AT. HENCE,THERE WAS NO ZEAL TO READ/STUDY,HE FAILED IN WHAT I CALL ”SUPER FAILING COLORS”
The truth is once you are living another person’s dream,you are living to fail.
You can still avoid this by still reading hard even though you picked the wrong course immediately J.A.M.B releases change of course and institution form make sure you get it.
Procrastination is a poison of the mind that kills hard-work and dreams. Some people are still saying Its a month or two to jamb Examinations,therefore they still have-time To prepare. I reserve my pity for such people as failure is sure for them.
There is a saying that goes like this “Everyday spent procrastinating is another day spent worrying about that thing, do it now and move on with your life”, Procrastination eventually results regrets.
3. Not Using Your Jamb Syllabus
Every year there is a new syllabus released by J.A.M.B. According to research students who follow their jamb syllabus score 250 and above in jamb exams . Follow the syllabus, it’s meant to guide you.
4. Poor Study Methods
Some people will keep on writing J.A.M.B till their mates have gone and graduated from university, simply because they fail to study properly. You need an effective study method.
Over two million students registered For Jamb this year and if you don’t have a strategy worth challenging to them,Failure is your goal. There is a saying that by not planing to pass,you are planning to fail .
5. Carrying JAMB expos And Depending On Runs
Jamb Over the years have advanced technologically to curb examination malpractice, most centers now have hidden camera’s monitoring you, if you even ask a question or turn your head or bring out “chocs” You will be caught by the jamb officials, it is Advisable to not engage in Malpractice .
Depending On Runs:
Some students have actually studied hard, I mean really hard. But at the dying moments of preparations decide to pay one runs guy to assist them with answers as a back up plan.
This shows low self esteem in one’s self,and I can tell you such student is destined for failure,because as little as you rely on it,you will still lose focus and zeal to read.
6. Avoid Setting Low Scores For Yourself
Set high scores like scoring 280+ and above in J.A.M.B, don’t go below that, if you set scores like 200 or 220, you won’t have the ‘ginga’ and zeal to read, it means you either lazy or not serious with coming out in flying colors in J.A.M.B.
But me scoring below 220, 230 does not guarantee you admission in any top university in Nigeria but scoring 280 and above guarantees you admission in any top university in Nigeria even though you wouldn’t necessary be given the course you applied for.
Never aim for the sky but aim for the moon, so even though you fall;you will land on the sky.
Dear friends, read this post very well if possible twice. I advise you to work hard until the lamp light of your study table becomes spotlight of stage.
It may be hard but focus on studying, believe me its going to be worth it. Your sleepless nights will never be in vain if you study wisely and thoroughly.
