I will unveil the five reasons why 2021 jamb candidates might score low. If you’ve been writing jamb for years please take a good note of these points.
Yet to reprint your jamb slip?

Don’t bother to ask how to pass jamb if you are not willing to examine yourself and know your weakness.
Why Do Candidates Score low in JAMB?
1. Not Time Conscious: Most candidate don’t work with time during the exam and that’s why some spends much time dealing with just a question. This has happened to me also when writing my exam. Before I could detect, the time is already against me. The time jamb assign for all subject is just 2 hours.
How many questions does jamb set?
Jamb sets a total of 180 questions for all candidates.
English carries 60 out of the 180 questions while the 3 other subjects carries 40 questions each.
Now that you’ve know this let’s do the calculation. Take for instance you spend a minute on each question and you know 2 hours in minutes is 120.
So if you are to use this method you will only have the time to answer 120 questions. Hmmn… 40 questions undone can this workout?. Please omit questions you don’t know and move to others. Be time conscious and make sure you submit before the time elapse.
2. Not Punctual: As we all know that some candidate might have their venue not close to them. During my own time I live in Lagos and I did my jamb in Ibadan. If you are also in that condition make sure you get to know the center at least a day before the exam. Knowing your center before the day of exam will let you get the earlier.
3. Not prepared for the Exam: Some candidates won’t start reading until a day or two before the exam. Some of them also think the imaginary JAMB EXPO really exist.
If you don’t read your books, I am so sorry there’s no way you can pass this exam. As a candidate, you should start preparing for JAMB as soon as possible.
The best time is after you are done with secondary school (ss3), at that time you will have sat for the SSCE exams and your brain will still have a good memory of what you learnt in secondary school.
That way the more you read, the easier it gets for you to understand and remember. Trust you shouldn’t joke with JAMB if you really want to gain admission in Nigeria.
4. ITK (I Too Know): Some candidates are just to full of themselves, thinking they know everything. This attitude usually puts them in trouble and make them score low or have their results held by the board.
They do not take heed to the simple instructions and even ignore what the supervisor is warning them about.
Well, what more can I say than you should always be humble and willing to learn.
You are not God, there is no possible way you can know everything. Even if the whole Google’s database is planted into your nervous system, you will still be missing out on some information.
5. Village People Wahala: This is hilarious right? I don’t think so. Some people fail this exam due to problems that man can’t explain physically.
What if your village people have been following you in all your endeavors? This is one of the reasons why you need to be prayerful while preparing for the exam.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying you should dedicate your whole time to religion or prayers, you should just include it in what you are doing to pass the JAMB 2021 CBT.
Some people’s computer will just start misbehaving or even shut down not neglecting the fact that they are academically prepared for the exam.
Others may do their exam in bad CBT centers which may affect their JAMB score negatively, I can’t say that is their decision. All these are few examples of the problems we often can’t explain the cause but one needs to be also spiritually prepared.
Now this is not going to be a very long article as I am going to write an article on how you can smash JAMB examination at once in the future.
