1. Registration problems : NIN (National identification number)  have been confirmed as the key to registering for JAMB 2020 instead of the normal biometric verification. Candidates are advised to register in Accredited CBT center. Don’t patronize cybercafes. Patronizing cyber cafes only put your year at risk.

   You can get your NIN number free at Local government councils and some banks in Nigeria.
Meanwhile registration starts on the 13th January 2020.
NB: Don’t use last year phone number for this year and send your NIN number to 55019 to receive your profile code


 2. Error by candidate on personal information (data)  : This is the most silly mistakes candidate makes,   some make the mistake of supplying their names wrongly, Some put their surname as first names, Some Imputed a wrong age.  This should be totally avoided this year.


3. Wrong subject combination : Many students are fond of making this mistakes because they lack proper guidance and counseling, They chose wrong subject combination for some courses. Have seen a case where someone aspiring for Medicine choose maths instead of biology because of her love for math. Which should not be so ,As the right subject combination for medical courses should be “English (compulsory), Chemistry, Physics, Biology”.  Candidate can check online for their subject combination.

 4. Little or no preparation at all : Candidate are fond of reading for examination few days to the exam, some don’t even bother to read and believe they will score high.  Start preparation now, Spend at least  15 hours with your books daily digging into your books and finishing topics. And also keep away from your phone or any distractions.
5. Wrong School choice : some JAMB candidates are so guilty of picking Federal university  as second choice which is totally unacceptable. Federal university don’t allow candidate picking them as second choice. So its advisable for you to pick A Federal university as first choice,  A state university as second choice,  A College of education as 3rd choice,  And any random school as 4th choice.
6. Not studying with the right learning materials : Students are advised to prepare for the upcoming JAMB using the recommended syllabus and textbooks…
JAMB syllabus for all subjects have been provided and also recommended textbooks have been provided. Use the recommended syllabus and textbooks to your advantages.
7 . Timing in the examination hall: Are you also guilty of the group of candidates that Are very slow in the examination hall, JAMB doesn’t test prowess sometimes. Your speed and accuracy is sometimes put to test
8.  Miscellaneous mistakes : always remember your Gmail and all necessary passwords, Set a goal for this examination, Aim for the sky and you may fall among the stars.  Be confident going into the examination hall but not too overconfident to choose wrong answers. Take your time to read and understand each question, Endeavor to answer all questions. make sure you cross check your answers before submitting,Make sure you are through with all questions before clicking on “submit”
If you avoid all mistakes I’ve listed and explained above, and you follow my advice you won’t have any problem in your JAMB Examination and get a good score.
