    • Hello Godwin,

      I will look into the timetable and make the necessary adjustments.

      I wish you success in your exams.

  1. Sir
    I do read and study but if i stay for some time i use t0 kind of forget somethings and the exam is fast approaching
    And i do have little problem in chemisty i understand all the theory but not the practical aspect.

    • Hello Emmanuel,

      Here are some study tips that can help:

      1. Create a study plan: Start by outlining what you need to cover and when you plan to study. Set realistic goals for each study session and make sure to schedule breaks.

      2. Use active studying techniques: Simply reading and highlighting notes is insufficient. You need to engage with the material to remember it actively. Try using techniques such as summarizing, making flashcards, and practising past questions.

      3. Practice, practice, practice: The more you practice, the better you will become. Try practising past questions, working through textbook exercises, and experimenting with different study methods until you find what works best.

      4. Seek help: If you’re struggling with understanding chemistry practicals, don’t hesitate to ask for help. Reach out to your teacher or tutor for extra support, and consider joining a study group where you can collaborate with other students.

      5. Take breaks and rest: Take regular intervals and get enough rest. Your brain needs time to process and retain the information you’re studying. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep each night and take breaks every 45-60 minutes to look.

      6. Stay motivated: Finally, stay motivated and positive. Believe in yourself and your ability to succeed. Celebrate your successes, and don’t let setbacks discourage you.

      Passing the WAEC exam takes dedication, hard work, and persistence. Following these study tips and staying focused on your goals can increase your chances of success.

      I wish you success in your exams.

      2. Practice regularly: Math is a subject that requires a lot of practice, so make sure to do your homework regularly, and work through additional problems to reinforce your understanding.

      3. Review your notes and textbooks: Go over your notes and textbooks regularly, and make sure you understand all the concepts.

      4. Seek help when needed: Don’t be afraid to ask your teacher or tutor for help if you’re struggling with a concept or problem.

      5. Work with a study group: Join a study group with other students who are interested in math, and work together to solve problems and prepare for tests.

      6. Use online resources: There are many online resources available to help you learn math, such as Khan Academy, YouTube tutorials, and math forums.
