Finally, the JAMB Mock Exam for 2020 UTME candidates holds on Tuesday, February 18th, 2020. For candidates who will be participating in the mock exam, we would like to point out a few things you should take note of that will help you during the main examination especially if this year will be your first time writing JAMB exam.
We advise you to take the JAMB mock examination like it is the main JAMB examination. This will prepare your mind and help you grow the confidence to tackle the main JAMB exam. Observe the whole conduct of the exam carefully. Especially, take note of the following;
The Onscreen Calculator: JAMB will not allow candidates to come into the exam hall with calculators. You will be required to use the calculator that will be on your Computer screen to calculate anything during the exam So for those who will be taking subjects that have to do with calculations, I will advise you take time to observe how the Onscreen calculator works. If you do not know how to use it, call the attention of the invigilator. This will help you know how to use it well during the main Exam.
Check If A Rough Sheet Is Provided: Also for candidates who will be taking subjects with calculations, most will require you to use a rough sheet. However, JAMB has banned the idea of bringing the rough paper in the exam hall. We don’t know if they will provide one for candidates. So try to see if there is any provision like that so you will know how to prepare for the main exam in terms of tacking calculation questions.
Other Important Things To Take Note Of:
a. Take a good look at the layout or interface of the computer screen after login in.
b.Take note of where the TIME is located and the exact time given for the exam.
c.Take note of where the Subject Navigation is Located, the subjects you will be examined on is located, how many questions you are to answer etc
d. If you are provided with the 8 key device introduced by JAMB, take the opportunity to master the keys earlier mentioned.
e.Check if both the 8 key device and Mouse are provided and if you are able to use the two.
f.Check if there is anything new that has been introduced by JAMB that wasn’t there last year.
g.If you find anything you do not understand, ask the invigilator so it won’t be a problem for you during the main exam.
Please to avoid being punished or disqualified, do not go to the hall with the banned items. If you must go with them, make sure you keep them somewhere safe outside the exam hall. You can come back after the mock exam to share your experiences with us in the comment section. It will be highly appreciated.
