Guide (2). You are advice to visit your jamb examination center atleast once before the date of the examination, so that the examination center/environment on the jamb exam day, will not be completely new to you.

Feel the area, imagine the crowds and see yourself there, calm and confidence. (believe me, this stuffs work, so take them serious. And between it is for your own good)

Guide (6). This is very important, ensure you ‘disregard’ all the candidates reading “textbooks” at the exam center. (what have they been doing for the past 4 Months? Reading ‘writing-books?’ or doing- wait, i hope you are not one of them? freebrowsinglink.com). Since you came early, check for your Jamb Seat Number.
Guide (7). On the examination hall, pray to God to lead you successfully. (if you are not a christian, please either give your life to Christ or don’t pray. Because God do not listen to the prayers of sinners). Ha, but God is Love, just accept him as your lord and saviour, he will guide and guard you. (and wait, don’t do this just for the sake of Jamb examination, and after that you return to your former ways, remember … Be not be deceive, God is not MOCK…)
Read the instructions on your Jamb Paper carefully. Do not be disturbed by the ‘ruffling’ sheets of your fellow students in a hurry or who might have started before you, just focus.
Guide (8). During the examination, keep Mathematics aside until you must are through or almost through with other subjects, (if you start with mathematics, you might start calculating English Question) and there is no Calculation in English!! *smile*. When you are through with other subject, you can start tackling mathematics. Use appropriatepenc il. www.nigeriaschool.com.ng

Guide (9). ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS. Avoid any “no result situations”. Turn to kalo kalo in any emergency situation if need be. (I hope you know what is kalo kalo? Or you be Aje-butter?)
Guide (10). Okay, I know you are very brillant. but please, do not rush to be the first out of the examination hall. (this is not primary school days. *laughs* freebrowsinglink.com) and ‘intending’ Law students are usually guilty of this error. But once you are through with your exam, go straight home. Do not discuss the examination with anyone, Not even your closest friend! (unless you want to make ‘New’ friends)
Tips for tackling Jamb Mathematics questions
1. Hello Jambites? Do you realize you have an average of only 54 seconds to answer each mathematic question?
2. Do you also know that reading each question itself, might take up to 15 and 24 seconds? And now, can you really use 30 seconds to solve each question? (you can only if you are a genius!! and i know my good friends here are?)
3. As Usual, there are four types of Jamb Mathematics questions and they are:
(i) Those you can answer by mental elimination of options (options that are not likely to be the answer).
(ii) Those you can answer by mental calculation.
(iii) Those you can answer by written simplification
(iv) Those you can answer only by “full working”. These are otherwise called TIME WASTERS.
4. AVOID those under 3(iv) like a hot iron, until you have answered all those under 3(i) to (iii). Use kalo-kalo method for 3(iv) usually close to the end of the examination. Don’t pretend you can be a Professor of Mathematics because you don’t have the time. This method might also be useful for all calculation- based subjects such as Physics, Chemistry or to some extent, Economics. (Talking of kalo kalo, do you know timbo tinbo… rhyme? Good.)
5. Anywhere possible, use methods and formulas instead of tables (example: 882 – 122= (88 12)(88 – 12). 100 × 76)
