Why You Need To Practice JAMB Past Questions Before The Exam

Most times candidates do ask me this “Does JAMB repeat questions?” I did my personal research. In my findings, I discovered a shocking truth. 100% Yes, they do. JAMB repeats up to 60% of Past Questions in Exams. It’s not their fault that they do repeat past questions. The fact is that there are no new questions to ask.

The JAMB syllabus is almost the same for the past many years. So, all they do is to keep recycling questions every year. They may decide to ask the questions in different formats, but really, the questions are the same as the ones they have been asking in previous years.

So get as many past questions as possible. When you practice make sure you confirm your answers from reputable textbooks and not ‘Hungry authors’ with wuruwuru answers. Familiarity with JAMB past questions will help you discover the areas where questions usually come from & you can quickly pick on your areas of strength first.

      Repeating questions is a common phenomenon in most annual or biannual examinations. Yet, it doesn’t mean that, a particular year questions shall be totally repeated anyway.
      For instance between 50-60% of new questions are past questions.
