Jamb 2015: 6 Mentalities Candidates Must Have To Scale Through The Examination. by starbhooy(m): 1:43pm On Feb 27, 2015
[b]It is really funny how so many people
can become successful failures when it
comes to examinations. Some people
virtually fail every exam they have
ever written in their lives.
Back in the 90’s, I used to have a
friend who literally wrote and failed
JAMB 9 (nine) times, and believe me it
was not funny then. I mean it got to a
point where JAMB officials took good
notice of him (as a regular customer)
and they started sending him
seasonal greeting cards every Xmas
(believe it or
leave it!).
Writing 6 mentalities to have before
writing JAMB
exams is something of great interest to
me. In my
15 years of partaking in various
examinations, I
have come to realize that there is a big
between your state of mind and your
IQ. Your
intelligence becomes very useful when
you are in a stable state of mind, but
when the human mind goes gaga, and
there is no external hard disk or back
up around the examination room…
Firstly before dreaming of becoming a
student of any tertiary institution in
Nigeria is to have a good self esteem.
Do not judge me wrongly here.
I am not going to tell you to read until
we discover another source of
electricity from your brains.
I already assume your parents, uncles,
aunties and even your oga’s and
madams ‘at the top’ have lectured (or
should I say bored you) on that
I am just here to fix your brain to fit
into an examination environment. So
what is self esteem? Mind you it is not
about dressing like P-Square or Wiz-
Kid, or looking prettier than Omotola.
It is all about how you see your self
(very important!).
It might amaze you that majority of
people who think that they cannot
pass an examination actually end up
not passing that exam. If you stand in
front of a mirror and tell your self
that you are ugly, then JAMB paper
will have the courage to tell you worse
( believe me). So from today, as you
study for your up coming
examinations, start whispering sweet
things to your self, network with
sound minded people who also share
your goals and belief.
Number 2 : Never get intimidated by
what other are studying or reading.
Very funny right? My first experience
as a JAMB candidate was very
intimidating. I once entered a JAMB
class thinking I have read enough only
to discover that I was still a learner.
The questions two girls were throwing
at on another made me wonder if it
was the same JAMB I was about to
write. If not for God, I was already
imagining the type of bike that would
be very suitable for my new found
business in my imagination world.
In practice, be a master of the few you
have studied, learn them very well
and if you want to add to
your knowledge, feel free to join other
study groups
you might find, be part of them and
never feel intimidated. After all you
might discover that you know more
than them.
Number 3 : Do not think negative
about others. Girls this one mostly
applies to you people. Just like self
esteem, what you think of others
greatly affects you directly or
indirectly, sub-consciously
or even consciously. You might not
know this, but all the time you spend
gossiping, jealousy and holding
grudges against your friend,
makes your friend even better than
you. This state of mind makes your
studying process more difficult
and painful. So free up your mind
before you pick up a book today and
most importantly do not keep malice
with friends.
Number 4 : Overcome Fear! Just like
intimidation, fear has a way of getting
back at us. No matter what you read,
that fear in you will always tell you
that you will fail. Let me break it
down for you like this: F-False, E-
Evidence, A-Appearing, R- Real. False
Evidence Appearing Real. Overcoming
examination fears can be achieved
through studying with more confident
students for that particular
examination. Studying with close
friends may also help overcome fear
over time.
Number 5 : Choose a strategy! A
strategy is a means you want to use
and achieve your goals. Since your
goal is to pass JAMB and get admission
into a university or polytechnic,
you have to decide on a good strategy
to adopt. If
you are a good listener, you might try
listening more often from your friends
in group discussions. Like-wise, if you
are a slow learner, you might as well
try reading and attempting
past questions to allow it stick faster
to your brains.
Choosing a strategy you are
comfortable with will not only make
you pass exams, but it will
boost confidence and reduce fear in
you. So which examination strategy
are adopting for you March exams?
Number 6 : Bring in the God factor. If
you have read to this point and you do
not have a place in your heart for
God, I rather suggest you walk round
your area and look for a hug-
able transformer, so that we will
understand what M.I meant in his
song ‘beef’. So in essence, fear and
love God. Pray before you study and
before your exams, and every other
success factor will be easier for you to
apply. [/b]
