Preparing for JAMB can be super stressful and it’s really common to feel intimidated and unsure about how to approach it.

If you just googled “how to pass JAMB” because you have no idea where to even start with preparing, then this one’s for you. ❤️

Start where you’re most confused 🧠

Studying is a little bit like making an investment — and you want to invest where you’ll get good returns. When you’re studying you’ll get the highest returns (i.e. gain the most knowledge) by studying the subject or topic you’re the worst at. 📈

So pick your absolute worst topic, and start writing down everything you know about it.

You’ll probably get stuck pretty quickly. That’s okay. 🙋🏾‍♀️

As soon as you hit something you don’t understand just send a quick message about it to the FoondaMate AI on WhatsApp, like this 👇🏾👇🏾👇🏾



Once you understand that message, start over and write down everything you know about the topic again. ✍🏾

This time you’ll be able to write a little bit more! 🙋🏾‍♀️

Keep doing this until you feel you have a good understanding of the topic. ❤️

Do a JAMB past paper 📝

After getting an understanding of the topic, it’s time to see if you can apply it. The first time you’re doing a past paper you’ll probably get stuck a lot, and need to check the answers often.

That’s okay because you’re still learning how the knowledge you just gained is applied in the JAMB. ✨

Start by downloading a past paper from FoondaMate or wherever you get your past papers 👇🏾👇🏾👇🏾


Then go through all the questions, and answer as best as you can. Check your answer afterwards and see where you went wrong. ❌

You’ll probably make quite a few mistakes, but that’s totally fine. Just correct it, and make sure you understand where you went wrong. ✅

At this point you’ll have a fairly good understanding of both the content and how it will be tested. Which means there’s just one thing left. It’s time to practice, practice, practice. ✍🏾

Time yourself doing a JAMB past paper ⏰

Download a couple of past papers from FoondaMate, like this 👇🏾👇🏾👇🏾


Then do this:

  1. Set a timer on your phone for 2 hours. 📱
  2. Try and finish the entire paper in two hours without looking at the answers. ⏰
  3. Then mark yourself. If you don’t understand why you got a question wrong, check your textbook, notes or ask FoondaMate until you understand. ✅
  4. Then repeat this with a new exam. 🔁

Do this until you are getting a grade you’d be proud to get in your final JAMB exam. You can do this over a few days while you get ready for JAMB, and by the time you write your JAMB you’ll be ready to get 💯💯💯!
