Things You Should Know And Do A Day Before Your JAMB Exam

By now candidates must be warming up for the JAMB examination. This post is to let you know the things you are expected to do a day to your exam, things you are to bring to JAMB exam centre/exam hall and the first thing you should do when you get to the JAMB Exam Centre.

What To Do A Day Before Your JAMB Exam

  • Try to sleep early the day before the exam so that you can wake up fresh. Never read overnight into the day of your examination. You need to give your brain the needed rest so it can perform well when it is needed most.
  • Try all you can to get to the venue of the examination on time it is better to be there before time than to be late. If you are living in a town or state different from where your Exam Centre is located, you are advised to locate the town and if possible the centre a day before the exam. Be at your exam centre at least 30 Minutes before the time stipulated on your exam slip
  • Try not to entertain any negative thoughts or feelings. Even if you were unable to cover the syllabus, don’t panic; approach the exam center with confidence. Often times it is the fear of failure that makes people fail.
