Samuel said:

“Students must study hard and smart to recognise correct answers in the shortest time frame possible. That is, Students shouldn't spend time unnecessarily on questions that do not deserve it because questions may carry equal marks but do not carry equal steps in solving them.
“Students must have basic knowledge of the operation of a Computer; history has revealed how some Computer-illiterate UTME Students fail their exams because of inexperience or phobia of the operation of a Computer.
"Students with this problem who do not have PCs or Computers can download any of the (1) JAMB CBT Practice Offline-APP or software on Play Store or Google Store, or they can just search directly on Google for JAMB online CBT practice.

“If a Student comes across a difficult question(s), I will advise that they skip it by clicking on "NEXT" on their screen. This will enable the Student to attempt all questions and also save time. Spending too much time on a question that you find difficult and which you might eventually get wrong will only end up wasting the student's time and, at the same time, depriving the student of other "cheap or bonus" questions at the front."
