As the 2012/2013 post-utme continues to draw nearer, and as expected, the 2012/2013 post-utme results would be released as soon as the post-utme is conducted.
As a result of this, VNTI has been working endlessly to draft major resources and guides to enable you make this 2012/2013 session your year, and a memorable one in your history.
You really have come a long way to stand in front of the almighty post-utme. You must have written that dreadful UTME examination and you have passed…
I hope you passed?
Okay. But there remains a problem. There is still one more bridge to cross – the almighty Post UTME/APTITUDE test!
Of course, you still have to scale through in that Post UTME/post-UME, or post-JAMB as many prefer to call it before you finally admission into that Institution of your choice.
This actually is where your troubles start to manifest again.
As always believed by most candidates and aspirants of various institutions, passing the post-UTME/post-UME or post-JAMB appears to be a much more daunting task than passing UTME itself for the obvious reasons which includes but not limited to:
>>> THE UNIVERSITY POST-UTME/POST-UME OR POST-JAMB EXAMINATION HAS NO KNOWN FORMAT:
The University post-utme/post-ume entrance examination basically has no known format since you cannot predict each institutions questions at any time. We may argue that VNTI has revealed the post-utme format and structure of major institutions but, the wisdom of the universities should not be taken for granted. For example, the Nnamdi Azikiwe University(UNIZIK) awka, has been known to produce basic UTME questions at their post-utme annually, but surprisingly and shockingly, the Nnamdi Azikiwe University(UNIZIK) post-utme last 2011/2012 admission session consists of basically mathematics, english and history, like the University of Abuja(UNIABUJA) post-utme or the University of Illorin(UNILLORIN) post-utme. As a result of this, VNTI requires all her readers, to prepare for the worst.
>>> EACH UNIVERSITY, POLYTECHNICS AND COLLEGES OF EDUCATION HAS A UNIQUE WAY OF ORGANIZING THEIRS:
This is another reason why VNTI expects you to prepare for the inevitable, based on the fact that many Institutions would like to surprise candidates this year, with a different format of questions. The post-utme format ranges from;
• All basic five O-level subjects(seen at FUTO etc)
• The Four UTME subjects(UNN etc)
• General Knowledges(UNILLORIN etc)
• Current affairs(UNIABUJA etc)
• Fill In the Gaps as well as many others.
[THE VNTI ADVICE]
Once again, prepare for the worst, so that you are not caught unguarded.
>>> THE POST-UTME/ADMISSION CUT-OFF MARK ISSUES:
The post-utme/admission cut-off marks may not be clearly stated and is always the case most of the time, and with most institutions which actually begins your problems, most especially if you are writing the exam for the first time this session.
But the good news is that, it is not supposed to be happening that way. Something definitely has to be done to change this.
There have to be a way in which you can overcome all those above mentioned issues and still excel in your Post UTME examinations.
Which is why you are here and VNTI is dedicated to you?
So be attentive, put everything you are doing aside and listen to this;
This year’s 2012/2013 post-UTME would be a very competitive examination, primarily due to the high success rate in UTME of candidates who scored 200 and above, countered by the limited admission spaces in Nigerian Universities, especially for the so called BIG COURSES which is why you have to be very serious and dedicated to this course if you are sure this year would be your year.
This means that so many candidates are going to be contesting for the limited admission slot with you and it is going to be a tough fight, which explains that you have to make very high grades to improve your chances of securing admission this session.
Is that taken?
Now let’s move on, Listed below are the ways and methods by which you can make good grades in your Post-UTME/post-UME examination as recommended by the VNTI team.
EARLY PREPARATIONS IS YOUR STEPPING STONE:
You must have noticed that we have always been consistent with this. Don’t get upset or fed up, It happens to be one of the most effective strategies if not the most effective strategy itself, for surviving and surpassing examinations for as long as history could entail. Nothings does better than getting adequately prepared for anything you are about to encounter in life as you must not be caught unaware!
Being the community of renowned and proclaimed students and graduates that we are, we are already aware that most students only like to start preparing for an examination when the exam is already so close at hand.
In fact, most students have admitted that they can only start to understand and assimilate what they are reading when the examination is about two weeks away!
That is understood but the problem with this formula is that, this formula denotes cramming, and not many of us can boast of an effective ability to cram what we read.
Besides, too much cramming practice can easily lead to your brain becoming overloaded which would eventually render you a victim of confusion, anxiety and unnecessary fear because of amnesia, commonly known as memory loss.
So the main and only way you can easily walk out of this terrible condition as recommended the VNTI team is to emulate the habit of EARLY PREPARATIONS. Agreed?
Fine. Now we can proceed.
BASICS OF PREPARATION
The post-UTME/post-UME has no basic format as earlier disclosed, The problem being that you have no idea of what to expect in the forthcoming examination. VNTI through our numerous post-utme reviews have managed to ease students plight and confusion in this phase. Notwithstanding, We have seen situations where the candidates have to answer more intriguing questions than the UTME but we have also witnessed some Post-UTME/post-UME examinations in which the candidates were simply required to write their names and surprisingly, some just couldn’t for reasons which we still could not reveal.
Perhaps, it was the confusion or the over-dependence on Runs, but whichever it is remains unknown. The basic fact remains that, they failed to write their names.
This is what Is important for you to know now,a basic step that would definitely see you through if practiced deeply.
1. You ought to know that the post-UTME is not so different from the UTME examination you just experienced.
2. You should know the institution into which you are seeking admission.
That’s basically all that is involved.
Now you know that much difference doesn’t exist between the JAMB UTME and the University post-UTME, this implies that you already have a knowledge as of where to begin.
But that would not be enough.
Having an idea of the institution you are seeking admission into enables you to have an insight into the nature of the examination. More insights into this is given by the VNTI post-utme review.
Almost all institutions if not all, demands you to fill your answers inside the question sheet which prevents the question from leaking out and clears any such thing as a post-utme past questions.
You shouldn’t feel bad though because through various means, the past questions always find its way to the outside community, you can also always ask individuals who has written before.
It is a very good practice to get someone who has written the examination previously and enquire of him the type and nature of questions that were asked, get him or her to tell you the time for the examination and also get him to tell you the number of questions they were asked. Let the person tell you if the questions asked where objective or subjective or a combination of both. Ask him if the use of calculator is allowed or not. Let them tell you if it is going to be any shading or not. Get as much information from someone who has done the same examination in the same institution to which you are seeking admission.
With the possession of such details and information, believe me, you are one foot in!
We are progressing…….
THE BIG STEP: THE PREPARATION
Now it’s time to move on. We believe You still have your 2012 UTME question paper, right?
We hope you haven’t thrown it away already, have you?
Get that particular question paper right now, Your revisions begins from there.
We believe that there are some questions that you forgot the answers during the 2012 JAMB UTME exam, if we are correct?
Now you would agree with us that it will be a very bad thing and a clear sign of unseriousness if by any chance, you happen to come across the a number of those questions again and you still fail them, huh ?
So you need to go through those and every other UTME past questions you can get you hands on.
In studying this, begin from the oldest, especially, from 1980 and above, because it has been a tradition for various institutions to go as deep as that to steal questions for their post-utme examinations. For example, UNN’s english questions have been a re-occurence of Jamb UTME english, from 1992 till 2000. Surprisingly, The 2012/2013 UNN post-utme english questions might still come forth from that category. mark those words.
So basically, the JAMB UTME is the ideal place to start.
We advice you to basically apply all that you have been thought as you advance to take your place among the Nations elites. Make sure to read our post-utme reviews, as well as comparing our statistics of students for your course ahead of your Institutions post-utme.
