How to Study for JAMB and Pass Excellently 2024

In this post, I will show you practical tips on how to write and pass JAMB and score high.

I have also included essential strategies for studying JAMB English, Physics, Government, Biology, Literature, Chemistry, etc. and recommended textbooks.

I struggled to pass my Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) exam for many years.

It would not be an understatement to say I got JAMBed by JAMB for many years.

At one point, I could not understand why I always got low scores. Sometimes I scored below 200. I was desperate to get a good score to secure admission into the University. 

I felt like a loser as I began to look dumb to everyone back home.

In secondary school, I performed well in my exams. I am not a lazy student. So, the problem was not that I could not read and understand.

Looking back today, I realise I used the wrong strategies for the years I struggled with JAMB.

I would not want any student to go through my painful experience.

You will find this post helpful if you think you are a bright or average student. 

By the way, I’m currently a student at the University of Nigeria

You see if I could make it. You, too, can get a high JAMB score to get admission into the University or Polytechnic of your choice

Trust me; there is no big secret or trick to scoring above 300 in JAMB. It boils down to your study technique and commitment.

If this is your first JAMB, then I pray that you pass your JAMB in one sitting once and for all. 

Also, if this is not your first exam, I am optimistic the strategies in this post will help you conquer JAMB. 

Have it in your mind that JAMB is not too difficult to pass.

Now let’s go into how to excel in your forthcoming JAMB examinations.

Please let me know in the comment box if you have any questions. I will respond to you as soon as possible.

Study JAMB Syllabus and Brochure 

A student with a laptop

The first thing you must do as a JAMBite is to study the official JAMB syllabus and brochure.

A common mistake students make is ignorance and not analysing the brochure and syllabus.

The JAMB syllabus contains all the topics you must study for your examination. It is a comprehensive guide on how to read and score high.

Inside the syllabus, you will see statements like the candidate should be able to know this and that. 

It gives you an important clue on what you must know for your CBT exam.

JAMB brochure gives you information about the courses offered at the different Universities, Polytechnics, Monotechnics and Colleges of Education

  • Before registering for your JAMB, check out the correct subject combination for your preferred course of study.

Note that a high JAMB score with the wrong subject combination will give you nothing.

How to Get JAMB Syllabus and Brochure to Study

Ensure that you check out these two materials. It is the first step before you begin preparations for your examination. It will make a lot of difference.

Nigerian student

Many Nigerian students fail the JAMB exam because they read gigantic textbooks for PhD students at the University.

Reading complex and irrelevant materials will not help you score high in JAMB. It is necessary to get the official recommended textbooks.

Inside the JAMB syllabus, you will see a list of recommended textbooks you should read.

For example, JAMB recommends Ababio’s New School Chemistry for science students.

You do not have to buy all the recommended textbooks.

You would end up not covering anything and spending a lot of money.

One text is enough for each subject.

Go for the one that is easy for you to comprehend.

For science students, here is a list of texts I recommend you supplement with your textbooks. 

Use of English
  • The Invisible Teacher of JAMB’s Use of English by Dele Ashade
  • A-Z English Textbook by Dele Ashade 
  • A-One English by Dele Ashade

Publisher Contact: 08038414863 / 08124566384 / 08181969947

  • Lamlad’s SSCE & UTME Chemistry by F. O. Ayinde and F. O. Asubiojo
  • New School Chemistry for Senior Secondary Schools by Ababio, O.Y
  • Senior Secondary School Physics by Okeke, P. N and Anyakoha, M.W
  • Lamlad’s SSCE & UTME Physics by O. Ajaja and H.B. Olaniyi

Publisher Contact: Little by Little Plaza Ajilosun Street, Ado-Ekiti.

  • Explicit Biology by O.J. Olaoye

Publisher Contact: 08069451567 & 08024761905

Location: Lagos, Nigeria.

  • Integrated Mathematics Textbook by Afolabi J.R

Note that some of these textbooks are not available in bookshops nationwide. 

A few years ago, I had to order Explicit Biology and Invisible Teacher from the publisher in Lagos. It was because no bookshop in my city had the book in stock.

I went the extra mile to get these books because of recommendations from Medical students in Nairaland. 

Funny enough, I also used Lamlad’s Chemistry to study in my first year at the University here at UNN.

For Medical aspirants, I recommend you check out the Nairaland Medical Student and Aspirant Thread.

The textbooks greatly benefit every science student taking JAMB this year. You will thank me later. 

Contact the publishers if the books are unavailable in bookshops in your area. Use the contact info I have provided above.

They are not expensive, typically within two thousand Naira or thereabout.

You can get Explicit Biology on Amazon

Get Rid of Distraction

An effective way to prepare, study and score high in JAMB is to eliminate distractions. 

WhatsApp and Facebook are the major distractions facing Nigerian students.

Many students find it hard to focus while studying without getting distracted. These distractions are buzzing on social media.

Getting rid of distractions is not as easy as it may sound. Addiction to these apps is never an easy habit to drop.

To eliminate distractions, you must do away with anything that would hinder your study plan.

You have to stay focused and discipline yourself.

Here are tips on how to get rid of distractions while preparing for JAMB.

  • Go to the library to study, and do not go with your Android or iPhone.
  • Study in a calm environment.
  • Get enough sleep before your study time.
  • Do not study on an empty stomach.
  • Switch off your data while studying.
  • Resist the urge to check out your WhatsApp messages during study hours.
  • Cultivate the habit of using social media only on weekends.
  • Make yourself unavailable to friends who would distract you from your study.
  • Get a good recharge lamp to study at night.
  • Study with a table and chair.
  • Inform your parents you need alone time to study.
  • Don’t do house chores during study time.
  • Study in a well-ventilated room.

Create The Perfect Study Environment

Creating a perfect study environment is necessary to get an excellent score in JAMB.

You must find out which environment best suits you to study. A serene environment helps you to read and understand.

Studying while lying in bed is not advisable—study with a table and chair.

A recommended study environment is libraries, universities or Polytechnic campuses around your house.

You can try out public secondary schools on weekends. Ensure that the location is safe. 

Even in your house, you can create a place perfect for you to study with minimal distractions.

Read and Study 

African Student

Reading or browsing through the topics in the JAMB syllabus is not enough. You have to study sincerely to understand the subject that you are reading.

Do not read topics like romance novels. You must read every page of your textbook with an understanding.

JAMB questions may come from in-between the lines. No topic in the syllabus is irrelevant. The questions can come from anywhere.

One mistake I made during my JAMB days was always trying to cover the syllabus in a short period.

Nobody will give you an award for finishing the JAMB outline in one month.

Never do you try to exhaust the syllabus to brag to your friends that you know how to read. 

Understanding what you are reading and clicking the correct option on the day of your examination is the essence of studying.

Have a good study strategy and time management technique. It will help you prepare for your exam. Starting to prepare early is an essential key to getting an impressive score of 250 and above.

JAMB Study Timetable

Here is an example of a JAMB reading timetable for a science student;

ThursdayUse of English

Here is a personal study timetable for a student sitting for English, Literature, Government and CRS.

Let’s assume that you want to allocate roughly equal time to each subject. That means you will study each subject for about 2 hours and 30 minutes per day.

Here’s a sample study timetable for you:


  • 8:00 am – 10:30 am: English
  • 11:00 am – 1:30 pm: Literature

Note that this is just a sample timetable, and you can modify it to fit your study needs and preferences.

This timetable covers 6 days of the week, leaving Sunday as a rest day. You can adjust the timing and days of the week to fit your schedule.

Also, remember to take breaks and rest as needed. Good luck with your JAMB preparations!

Identify Your Weakness

student studying with a laptop and book

As you study for your exams, you have to identify your weakness. You must recognise those topics that are proving difficult to understand. 

Never try to abandon any topic because you are unable to understand them.

It will shock you that many questions come from such areas in your exam.

Do not avoid complex topics. The best strategy is to search YouTube for videos on the concept.

You’d get an explanatory video to clear up your confusion.

You can also search for such topics on Google search with your phone. Read the results you find. You would see a good explanation.

Also, you can search for a person around your area to put you through complex topics. You’d be glad you tackled your challenges.

Practice JAMB Questions

online cbt test practice

Practising JAMB questions is a necessary study technique for every student. It is an effective strategy to get an outstanding performance in JAMB. 

Practice JAMB questions so that you can get familiar with the exam format.

You would not know what to expect in your exam without practising these questions.

Practice questions serve as a guide to gauge your level of preparedness for the exam. As you answer the questions, you can test if you have understood what you have been reading. It is an effective way to pinpoint your weakness.

Every year students make the mistake of cramming past questions like current affairs.

It usually ends in premium tears for these students. 

Test your performance with past questions and answers as you study the syllabus. Learn how to solve problems and not cram answers to questions. 

Get a correct copy of JAMB’s past questions and answers.

The question booklet you buy must explain every answer, not only the options.

JAMB Online CBT Test Practice

student studying with laptop

JAMB online CBT test practice provides a familiar experience like the main exam.

JAMB CBT apps are stimulating for the exam.

For the online CBT test, I recommend that you use MySchool. 

I recommend the MySchool classroom because you can interact with other aspirants in Nigeria. Some of the interactions and arguments would help you to get a better understanding of topics.

You can check out other CBT practice websites or apps on Google Playstore.

Believe in Yourself

student smiling

Believing in yourself is an essential key to succeeding in your exams. Do not look down upon yourself that you cannot score above 300.

You may not have attended the best Secondary schools, but you have a high chance of succeeding. Do not allow your environment to limit your potential.

Fancy high school students are usually highly confident that they would blast JAMB.

They prepare and write their examination with an inner assurance of success. 

Believe in yourself to pass the Joint Admission Matriculation Board Exam.

Attend JAMB Tutorial

A group of students taking pictures

Attending JAMB tutorials can assist you with preparations for your exams. Lesson centres teach you topics that you don’t understand.

Also, interacting with other students could serve as a morale booster. 

But sometimes, these tutorials can be a source of distraction. Many JAMBites attend these lessons to show off their latest gadget and fashion style.

Stay focused or quit whenever you find yourself in such tutorial centres. 

Care for Your Body and Health

woman sitting inside a boat

Good health is necessary to pass your exam. If you fall sick a few days before your examination, all your effort may go down the drain.

As you study, ensure you take good care of your body and health. Do not starve yourself to death because you are preparing for JAMB. 

You can look healthy and still be a serious student.

A high energy level and a top-notch frame of mind are necessary for your preparations.

Routine exercise is compulsory for every student. It helps your brain to work more effectively. You would begin to find it easy to recall everything you have read.

Exercise for at least 20 minutes every day.

You can dance to your favourite music in your room in the evening as your exercise routine.

Always engage in physical activities to improve your physical and psychological health.

Stay Informed On JAMB News

stay informed on jamb news

As you prepare for your exams, you must stay informed on JAMB news and update.

You must know the requirements for registration and when to print your exam slip or centre for your exam. 

Do not stay in the dark. You don’t want to end up missing a vital JAMB news update.

Join my Facebook group to receive updates from JAMB and other admission news. 

Another source of information is the newspapers, Television, Educational blogs, etc.

You can also use any other recommended textbook that is easy to understand.

Physics in JAMB is theoretical and mathematical. Study your textbook and practice with past questions.

Do not cram the answers into calculations. What you would want to do is to understand how to solve physics calculations.

A concrete understanding of topics enables you to tackle questions in any format.

Do not join the bandwagon of students who say physics is impossible to understand. 

Seek help on YouTube, and search topics on Google for better comprehension. Also, you could find somebody who would teach you even if it meant paying the fellow.

Practical Steps on How to Pass JAMB Chemistry

Engineering students

Chemistry in JAMB covers both the organic and inorganic sections.

I understand that many secondary schools do not teach organic chemistry.

Many teachers do not have grounded knowledge in the aspect of organic Chemistry.

Ababio’s Chemistry is one of the best textbooks to understand chemistry. 

Make sure that you get Lamlad’s Chemistry. It is compulsory if you are looking at scoring 80/100 and above. 

In my last JAMB examination (you know I wrote JAMB plenty of times), I used only Lamlad’s Chemistry to prepare. 

The result still gives me premium joy today. I can’t wait to hear your testimony.

Advice on How to Pass JAMB Biology

JAMB biology is straightforward. Study all the topics in the syllabus. You would get an outstanding performance.

Also, I recommend that you get Explicit Biology to supplement your textbook. Trust me, with Explicit Biology, you will score 75/100 and above.

Strategies on How to Pass JAMB English

English in JAMB covers comprehension/summary, lexis, structures, and oral forms

Did you attend a local secondary school? You will have to put in more effort to study and pass the use of English.

Invisible Teacher textbook teaches you tricks to pass JAMB use of English.

How to Pass JAMB Without Studying Much

You cannot pass JAMB without studying much and being hardworking. You must read, understand and cover the syllabus to pass the exam.

There is no shortcut to success. It is not possible in a national board exam. You may be imprisoned if you cheat or impersonate in the CBT exam hall. Do not bring shame and reproach to your family.

Read and Read, Pray and Pray.

JAMB Cheat Site

There is no authentic JAMB cheat site. Whatever you see online is created by scammers. They intend to lure students into parting away with their parent’s hard-earned money.

Every year, JAMB optimises its system to remove any loopholes. Do not fall for scammers. There is no JAMB cheat site.

JAMB Score Upgrade

JAMB score upgrade is a fake scheme promoted by impostors. Your JAMB score cannot get upgraded by any individual claiming to work with JAMB. Whatever you score is what you will see in your result slip. Study effectively to score high in JAMB.

  1. Good evening sir I have a question about tutorial centres .
    Actually I attend a tutorial centre but when I study or go I don’t feel motivated to study
    Nevertheless they do teach well but I found out that I achieve better results alone.
    What should I do

    • Hello Phibet,

      It could be that you learn best while studying alone.

      One of the main advantages of attending tutorial is to keep you in check, ensuring you’re studying and keeping tab of the necessary things you need to know for your exams.

      How many times a week do you go for tutorial lessons?

  2. I appreciate you for your post
    I have two questions
    My jamb exam is in two weeks
    I have been studying past questions and I now realise I need to read all topics in jamb syllabus
    In my textbooks I have knowledge
    of some topics so how can I get ready for the jamb exam
    My subjects are maths ,physics,chemistry ,and English

    • Hello Kenneth,

      It is nice to hear from you.

      At this stage, it is not possible to cover the JAMB syllabus.

      I recommend you study using the textbooks suggested in this post or similar books.

      That’s the only way to cover the JAMB syllabus in two weeks.

      I wish you success in your examination.

      Let me know if you have any further questions.

      Find where you can practice at a cyber cafe if you do not have a laptop.

      I wish you success in your examinations.

  4. Good evening sir, I get distracted easily and I’ve not been studying well,always feel like I know everything when I know nothing at all

    • Hello Chidinmma,

      It is never too late to begin your study.

      First, you must identify what distracts you while studying.

      It could be your environment, phone, etc.

      Then you can work towards overcoming distractions you encounter while studying.

      Let me know if you have any further questions.

      I wish you success in your examination.

  5. Thanks alot mr Olarenwaju Blessing, am very glad about this article of yours it is really impressive and motivative to me i swear to God almighty! You know, If i have the access to a smart phone last year i wouldn’t be at home as am presently now, because there is a word that says “information is power”. Though i did all my best last year to conquer my anxiety but it is impossible for me then, i did JAMB last year let me just say with a bit adequate effort to score 320+ but my effort proved abortive by ending up having 254 as my total aggregate score. Since then have been battling with so many challenges coming into my way of success. So then,i felt rejected by my parent at home for scoring below the departmental cut-off mark for Medicine and surgery in my proposed institution. But today i have a great and better hope, determination and high jamb score setting for my upcoming exam this year by God be sincere have gain more than alot success tips for me success in my academic journey in life.

    • Hello Michael,

      You’re welcome. I am glad you find this article helpful.

  6. Good afternoon, Mr Blessing
    Actually,I am taking English, maths, physics and chemistry for this jamb. So I want you to help me create a timetable. Wanna start studying ASAP.
    And also the fours books you recommended for these subjects, how do I get them? Because it is stated in the article that they are not available in the bookshops.
    Ok thankful you dropped their contacts, so my question is should I call them or WhatsApp the contacts? And will I be responded to? I just want the books to get to me ASAP so I start preparing judiciously.
    Thanks for your awaiting reply!

    • Hello Sarah,

      I recommend you try to get the books at big bookshops at your location.

      If they are unavailable, then you can then put a call through to the publishers.

      Here is a timetable you can work with;

      Monday = Physics

      Tuesday = Biology

      Wednesday = Physics

      Thursday = English

      Friday = Physics

      Saturday = Chemistry

      Sunday = Revision/Past questions

      Let me know if you have any further questions.

  8. Hi! Sir Blessing Olanrewaju.
    Thank you for your advise.
    This will be the third time I’m taking jamb, but I pray my last time. I am a medical aspirant of Uniport. I really need to pass this Jamb exam, I try to do most of the things you have said here but I have a problem, I can’t study without using a calculator. Please how can I solve Physics especially without my Calculator? And how many hours do you recommend I study in a day to get above 300 points.
    I would be grateful for your response.

    • Hello Victory

      It is nice to hear from you.

      You are allowed to use a calculator for your exam.

    • Hello Nyikun,

      If you’ve tried checking it using the SMS method and the online method and both have failed, I recommend that you go to the JAMB office.

  16. I have been preparing for my jamb and i will follow this instruction,if i pass well i will be very glad.But another question is that is it good to collect form for direct entry without using jamb.

    • Hello Mustapha,

      You can apply for direct entry through JAMB and you can also take JUPEB or IJMB exams.

      It’s good to do the one that best works for you.

  17. I don’t just know to place my timetable for effective reading
    I am a science student going for medicine and surgery

    • Hello, Okpusung

      You can check bookshops in your area for the Dele Ashade textbook.

  20. Hi, i realy enjoy the text and i hope by doing so i too will pass mine in Jesus name.But my problem now is that by the time i went to register for jamb,by then i recently make addition of name on my NIN, so in the couse of registering it they use only two of my names that i was using before, and right now i am bearing three names. so pls help me with solution.

    • That would not be a problem.

      It would take some time before your new name is updated on the JAMB database.

      Focus now on your JAMB preparations.

  21. This is my first time I just hope everything work in my favour also thanks for the hope you gave to me I truly appreciate it

  22. Hi I love this but still confused and scared of failing the exam and the exam is near but I can’t see my self that I have study hard what can I do

    • Hey Blessing,

      It is okay to feel scared about the JAMB exam.

      What you need to do at this stage is to identify your fears. Why do you think you are not prepared for the exam?

  23. I really enjoyed this!! I want to study medicine but my first jamb had a cripple of 263, it was sadly not enough for me. I’m reading for this year but I seem very much discouraged, your article was just what I needed. ??

    • Obinna, I’m glad to hear from you.

      I wish you success in your JAMB examination.

      Ensure that you study the recommended textbook. Also, keep a positive mindset.


      • Good day ma.
        Thanks for the article
        I really liked your guide
        Ma, is it possible for me to write Jamb before waec or can I write waec and jamb in the same year

        • Hello Olufolake,

          It is nice to hear from you.

          I am glad you find this article helpful.

          You can sit for the JAMB and WAEC exams in the same year.

          The JAMB exam comes before the WAEC examination.

          Let me know if you have further questions.

  24. The details you wrote on your site has been very helpful. I gained interest in easy ways to pass Jamb easily when I was young, I have visited various sites, done so much research but so far I have never seen any site that has been useful as yours.

    The information I saw there has been beneficial, and I really want to appreciate you for posting something this good keep up the good work.

    I also have some really good details that can prove helpful. You can get access to my site by clicking this link. I really hope it will be helpful.
