After JAMB, What Next?

Just as the saying; the best time to repair your roof is when the sun is shining. Take note that this year’s post-UTME result will pose a different problem to candidates, especially all candidates who did not score up to 180 generally because of the increasing number of students who are seeking for admission (Except you’re going to A Private University or Polytechnic).

What is more important to read before getting admitted? Personally and to all successful candidates, we know that the best material you should be reading now, is the FUTO past questions and answers. Proceed and make sure that you solved every year’s past question.

Many students feel that playing video games, engaging in paid work, attending parties are many but few things to do after writing JAMB. Well, while enjoying life, it is very important to note that post UTMe is by the corner. BRACE UP!!!

Almost all Universities in Nigeria conduct screening exam in order to determine students who are of best fit for their institution. Having said that, it is important to note that you should be getting ready for your PUTME exam at your chosen university.
