SEE 6 Best ways to Fully Prepare for Tests and Examinations

Examinations and Tests are mostly taken in order to ascertain a student’s performance in school. Examinations and Tests also go a long way in determining if a student is to be promoted or demoted and it mostly define if a student is serious or not.

Exams play an important role in the academic life of any student and the effort made towards it can make or mar a student’s career pursuit.

As a student who wants to excel academically, you should consider taking keen interest in the right ways you can prepare fully for exams.

You might have gotten the wrong teaching that “exams need no preparation” and that you can always pass by luck. Well, I want to tell you that a student who is more prepared for exam is better off than the one who never made any preparations.

There are many ways in which you can get yourself prepared for Tests or Exams. And no matter the kind of exam it is, you can always make use of these steps below:

1. Be Ready Before Time
A student who wants to make excellent marks in exam should not wait until the very last minute before they are ready.
Some students feel that reading before exams is a burden to them and so they tend to leave the reading on the day of exam. This kind of approach towards exam isn’t the best way at all.
There are many ways you can be ready. Among them are planning and following your time-table; getting ready all the necessities needed for the exam like textbook, work-books, pencil, pen etc; and so many other ways.

2. Avoid Distraction
When preparing for exams, it’s important that all forms of distractions should be avoided. The distraction could come from your families, your friends at school, electronic gadgets at home like TV etc. Avoid them all.
Locate a quiet place where you read and understand. During the period before your exams, you have to be very careful as not to pick a fight with someone, which might probably result to severe injury thereby compelling you not to focus on the exam ahead.
Avoid distraction from lazy friends that depends on luck; avoid distraction from your phones and the social media as well. Avoid anything that will have much effect on your thoughts.
By so doing, you can be prepared for any exams.

3. Work On Past Questions and Answers
Today, most examinations that are set for students are taken from previous year exams. Working on past questions is an effective way to prepare for any kind of examination. Working on past questions and answer also makes you to understand the style and format of the questions and it also provide the correct approach to every of the questions.
When practicing on past questions, make sure to work with the allotted time set. Doing this will make you prepared to answer the questions within the time limit.

4. Join Study Groups
You can do well to form study groups with some students or better still join with some groups of dedicated students who are serious.
During this time of your reading together, you might have questions to ask, ask the group and there is every tendency that you will get a positive answer.
Joining study groups can as well be a challenge to you, because you might meet with people who are more intelligent than you are. And you have to pick this challenge to study real harder.

5. Avoid Multi-tasking Your Brain
Take your reading step by step. Don’t go bringing out books that are not related and reading them all together. In doing so, you would be stressing the brain and giving it a hard time to focus on one.
Avoid your phones, gadgets and every other thing that might get your brain working on them.

6. Take Enough Sleep
During every sleeping hour, your brain gets to absorb all that you’ve read. Having a good sleep also refreshes your brain and also prepares your memory to recall all that you’ve read during the examination.
Also, don’t go dehydrated, drink plenty of water, and keep fit both physically and emotionally.
Going for an examination or test needs a lot of your preparations and the level of your preparations can determine how well you can do in the exams.

I believe these steps are of great importance before preparing for any test examinations.

UNN Mounts Video Surveillance Cameras in Campuses

In his effort to strengthen security around the campuses, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof Benjamin Ozumba on Wednesday, May 16, 2017 commissioned surveillance cameras mounted in strategic locations in Nsukka and Enugu campuses of the university.
During the commissioning at Nsukka campus, Prof. Ozumba expressed happiness that the university was moving at a high pace in the use of modern security and communication gadgets.

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof Benjamin Ozumba Commissioning the surveillance cameras at Nsukka campus.

“This is a modern technology for security and I am happy it is deployed in our university”, the Vice-Chancellor said while addressing a handful of university security personnel and ICT technicians who witnessed the commissioning exercise.
The Director of ICT of the university, Dr Olisa Okeke explained that the plan to install the surveillance cameras around the campuses was conceived by the Vice-Chancellor three years ago after his visit to China.
“It was a comprehensive plan to cover the entire university, what we are witnessing today is the Phase 1 of the project”, Dr Okeke said.
The Director described the project as a tremendous investment by the Ozumba’s administration which would enhance the security of lives and property in the university.
The cameras, according to Dr Okeke are powered by solar energy, with intelligent software for monitoring.

“They are configured with Internet Protocol address which enables us use them with our network”, added Engr Chinemerem Igbokwe an ICT anchor person for the project.
Chidubem explained that the cameras could store recorded images for a period of over three months and that there were plans to improve the storage capacity.
Eight security personnel, according to Igbokwe had been trained on how to use the cameras.
In his response, the acting Chief Security Officer of the university, Sir, R.C. Nwafor thanked the Vice-Chancellor for boosting the performance of the security department with the deployment of the cameras.
“We cannot overemphasis our heartfelt joy over your unflinching attention and benevolence to the Security Department since your assumption of office in June 2014”, Nwafor said while commending the Vice-Chancellor for lifting the ban on the promotion of staff in the security unit.
The Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Administration, Prof Charles Igwe also witnessed the commissioning exercise which was anchored by the Public Relations Officer, Chief (Dr) Okwun Omeaku.

Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA) Develops Solar Powered Generator

As a way of improving its Renewable Energy effort to de-emphasize dependence on the national grid, the Centre for Renewable Energy Technology (CRET) of the Federal University of Technology, Akure has developed solar-powered generators- FUTA Solar Box I and FUTA Solar Box 2.The generators of various capacities which components include Lithium Polymer Battery, Inverter, Change Controller, Socket Outlet, Fuse and Switches can power Television set, fan and a number of bulbs for a minimum of five hours at a go.

Presenting the generators to the University Management led by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Joseph Fuwape, the Director, CRET, Professor Olurinde Lafe, represented by the Associate Director, Professor Moses Awodun said the idea behind the generator was to alleviate the energy challenge being experienced by Nigerians.

According to him, the Box 1 with a capacity of 120w and which comes at a cost of N65, 000 with the solar panel and installation is targeted at students and other low income earners, while the Box 2 which is of 200w costs N110, 000 with panel and installation and targeted at staff and medium income earners.

Professor Awodun said at the flat rates, the noiseless and fume free generators are cost effective in comparison with others in the market with monthly subscription after installation. Explaining the components and functionality of the power generators, the Project Officer, CRET, Mr. Adekunle Adefela said the solar boxes are cost effective with no maintenance fee.

Commissioning the generators, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Joseph Fuwape commended the CRET team for its ingenuity in developing such solar boxes at a time when the masses are groaning under the pain of incessant and erratic power supply.

According to him, opportunities abound in FUTA and since Renewable Energy is a major way out of the challenging energy need, CRET which also operates from a Net Zero building that generates its own electricity is on the right track .

He described the FUTA Solar Box I and FUTA Solar Box 2 as practical demonstration of Renewable Energy.

Fuwape commended CRET and FUTA’s efforts at impacting the community, assuring of that they will be repackaged for commercial purposes. He called on Cooperative societies and interested members of immediate and external communities of FUTA to leverage on the opportunity and advantage of the power box. Professor Fuwape also the commissioned Solar Energy developed by CRET. The Solar Energy Pole can successfully power a two bedroom flat and at reasonable cost.

NYSC Members to Get Health Insurance in 2018 Budget

This will be implemented from the one percent of consolidated revenue fund to be dedicated to health, as stipulated by the National Health Act.

The chairman of Senate Committee on Health, Lanre Tejuoso (APC, Ogun Central), disclosed this at plenary on Wednesday while contributing to a motion sponsored by Andrew Uchendu (APC, Rivers).

Mr Uchendu had lamented the insensitivity of officials of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) towards corps members who fall sick during the three weeks orientation.

He made reference to Hilda Amadi who died last month at the NYSC camp in Yipkata, Kwara State.

Miss Amadi, who was a graduate of Oil and Gas Engineering from the University of Port Harcourt, Rivers State where she hailed from, was said to have slumped and died on April 26.

Her death came days after she suffered a bone fracture during a morning drill on April 23.

Mr Uchendu expressed disappointment at the fact that no attention was paid to her by the NYSC officials.
“They refused to let her friend, Jennifer Dike, take her home as they insisted that her parents must come from Port Harcourt to pick her up.

“Even when the doctors resolved to take her to Illorin for serious attention, that decision was not implemented,” he said.
He said her friend, Jennifer, saw an ambulance speeding out of the camp and was surprised that when she got back to the camp clinic to see another patient was on the bed.

“On the same day, corps members were assembled and informed of the death of Hilda. Neither the camp commandant nor the Kwara State NYSC coordinator deemed it necessary to visit late Hilda at the camp clinic.

“The corpse was taken home to Port Harcourt after four days by a Mr Morris, the ambulance driver alone without any official from the camp accompanying him. That is not the way to treat someone who was on National service,” he said.

In his remark, Mr Tejuoso stated that the one per cent of the Consolidate Revenue Fund (CRF) will ensure that youth corpers are covered by health insurance.
“I want to refer to the budget that we are passing today; that the issue of youth corpers in Nigeria is well highlighted.

“The introduction of the one per cent of the consolidated revenue fund that is going to be introduced in this new budget will ensure that all the youth corpers are covered by the health insurance.

“At events like this, you don’t need to rely on the doctors in camp. Any youth corper will be entitled to go to any hospital in the location in the local government that is covered by health insurance.

“So this kind of incident won’t repeat itself. The solution is included in this new budget that all the 300,000 youth corpers, every year, will be covered by the health insurance,” he said.

The Senate, thereafter, observed a minute silence for Ms Amadi and commended her friend, Jennifer Dike, for being there for her till her death.

It also condemned the insensitivity of the camp commandant and the state coordinator towards the deceased.
Other resolutions made by the Senate are, “mandate the Committees on Women Affairs and Youth Development to investigate the circumstances that led to the death of Hilda” and
“Advise the national headquarters of NYSC to ensure that only fully qualified medical practitioners are deployed to work in NYSC camps all over the country to prevent future occurrences.”

Despite Going to Parties, I made First Class – UNILAG Best Graduating Student

Partying and going to clubs limit academic performance, students are usually told. But the notion was proved wrong by Ginika Okoroafor’s academic feat. He was one of the best-graduating students of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) at its 2018 convocation.

Ginika was the cynosure of all eyes as she stepped out to receive top academic honours and awards. She was among the four who finished with a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 4.97 – the highest score in the graduating set.

Others were Oludare Babawale of Chemistry Department, Bosun Roy-Layinde, Chemical Engineering Department and Jeffery Matthew, Biochemistry Department.
Ginika, who finished from the Department of Early Childhood Education, said she partied all through her stay in the school, noting that the feat would not have been worth it if she did not socialise.
She said she was an introvert until she met a group of mentors, who told her that academic experience would not be complete without socialisation.

She said: “I had been an introvert since my secondary days. I had a worldview that life should always be about books until I gained admission into UNILAG. I nurtured the same worldview until I met a group of mentors, who made me believe a life without social value is not complete. I learnt it was important for me to develop socially.

“That is allowing school to pass through you. When I realised the value of being socially informed from my mentors, who are also doing very well in their fields, I told myself I was going to tap into it. I started making more friends; I started attending social functions.”

Ginika, however, warned students on the kind of social groups they should join. According, to her, social groups that cannot help students realise their academic pursuit should not be encouraged.

She said: “I chose the kind of people I moved with. We are like-minds and have the same goal academically. Students must be wary of the company they keep. They must not interact with people who have different ideas about education in the name of socialisation. I believe brilliance can’t be limited by going to parties, but students must move with like-minds.”
The 28-year-old said her academic journey was not smooth, adding that she worked to fend for herself while in school.

“I have always been an independent person. I come from an average family where not too many things are made available. That was the way I was brought up. This made me to combine schooling with work,” she said.

Before their final examination, Oludare was diagnosed of perel anal abscess (infection of rectum), which could have prevented him from sitting for his final examination. Early diagnosis of the ailment helped him to manage the condition through out the exam period.

He said: “I had a lot of setbacks during my final year in school. I spent more in the hospital than I spent in classroom. After I was diagnosed of perel anal abscess, I underwent correction surgeries at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) and I was absent from school multiple times. Even while I was on sickbed, I didn’t give up reading. I summoned the strength to study.

“Even when I was writing my final examinations, I was still visiting the hospital. I was astonished when I was told I emerged the best graduating student in my department. It is a victory given to me by God.”

The 24-year-old said he studied hard and smart, noting that he achieved the feat through perseverance and self-discipline.

“If there are a thousand tips for success, one of the top most would be discipline. The fact is that many people know how to achieve success, but majority don’t know how to put the knowledge into action. Failure doesn’t mean everything has ended. If you persevere, you will definitely get to the top,” Oludare said.

Jeffery said his academic feat was inspired by a poem titled: Good better best. The 21-year-old said he knew his ability early and worked towards achieving the best.

He said: “I know my ability and also my weaknesses, which made me to prepare early for the best. I never looked at how others were studying, because what works for somebody else may not work for me. So, I was able to understand my strength and I used it to my advantage. I knew reading for many hours usually resulted in stress for me. So, I devoted little time for reading, but I ensured I read what was important in each course I took.”

Addressing the graduands, the Vice-Chancellor (VC), Prof Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, urged them to be good ambassadors of the institution, advising them not to rest on their oars in achieving more excellence.

The best four received awards of excellence from UNILAG Alumni Association in addition to N50,000 each.

25-Year-Old Man Rapes Corper For Snubbing Love Advances

25-year-old Ogochukwu Namanene has been arrested by the Niger State Police Command, for raping a 22-year-old graduate and corps member serving at Janki Secondary school, Lapai.

The suspect from Lapai in Agaie Local Government Area of the state, who had been love advances to the victim before the incident, raped her while returning from Lagos to Lapai. He was however arrested by a team of policemen attached to the Agaie division of the state while trying to escape.
Namanene who claimed that he has “a soft spot” for the victim but did not know how to woo her, reportedly pretended to be a commercial motorcyclist, while taking the corps member to her lodge, dragged her into the bush, overpowered and sexually assaulted her.

“I was telling her to cooperate with me that I only wanted to express my affection for her but she refused. I beat her mercilessly until she became weak. After raping her, I rode my motorcycle away not knowing that the wrath of the law would catch up with me.”

Honestly, I love the corper but I don’t have the courage to express my affection for her, that was why I forcefully made love to her,” Namanene admitted.

Northern City News reported that the Police Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Abubakar, who confirmed the arrest of the rapist, said the suspect had been charged to court.

This is coming few months after the Ogun State Police Command arrested a 29-year-old driving instructor, Festus Udo, for allegedly raping and strangling a female youth corps member serving in the state.

“We are not in any way working to produce a certain number of first class, we simply use our basis of assessment regularly and consistently, which is very thorough, we have different processes of quality assurance, it is what comes out of it that we present to the world. From all indications our students are qualified in character and learning and can compete on the global scale because we have succeeded in offering world class training and deepening career progression,” he said.

WAEC Mass Failure And The Recipe For Success


Mass failure in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) is not new. It is becoming the norm in Nigeria’s education sector. Couple of months ago, the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, called for the declaration of a state of emergency in the sector. Recently, the Senate said it too is intervening in the academic crisis. In this report, Head, Education Desk, IYABO LAWAL, explores the history of mass failure in WAEC exams and how to truly resolve the issues

Nigeria’s Senate President, Bukola Saraki, is not known for frivolity. He has a rich political resume; same with educational pedigree. Understanding the undercurrents of the standards of education in Nigeria as borne out by the latest flop in the West African Examination Council-organised exams for O’ level graduates, he did not hesitate to speak out where many have kept silent.

Speaking on the latest mass failure in the WAEC exams, following the set up of a Senate committee, Saraki said, “I am sure the committee will work assiduously to get to the bottom of this matter and see that it is addressed. Indeed the education sector needs some reforms.”

The crisis in the sector was further described by Senator Biodun Olujimi as worrisome.She said, “There is need for revaluation to understand where the missing link is. There is also the need to look at teacher education because we have some teachers who are not properly trained, who don’t do research and cannot read or write. So, how can they teach our children well?”

In 1948, a meeting was held to discuss the future policy of education in West Africa; at the meeting, one Dr. George Barker Jeffery was appointed to visit some West Africa countries such as Sierra Leone, The Gambia and Nigeria. At the end of the visit, Jeffery’s recommendation for the establishment of WAEC in 1952 was adopted.

Established by law to determine the examinations required in the public interest in the English-speaking West African countries, the exam body conducts examinations and awards certificates comparable to those of equivalent examining authorities internationally.WAEC is an examination board formed out of concern for educational development in Nigeria and West Africa at large. The council is said to have developed a team of well-trained and highly motivated staff that conducts examinations at local and international levels.

Since 1984, Nigeria had won the top three prizes put up by the examination body eight times. That was in 1986, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006. On the other hand, Ghana won the prizes on nine occasions: 1990, 1992, 1993, 1994, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2013, and 2014.

In the eight years (1985, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1991, 2001, 2007, and 2011) that the prizes had been won by candidates from more than one country, Ghana had trumped Nigeria.However, the issue of Nigerian students sitting for the O’ Level exams organised by WAEC transcends winning top prizes.

To that end, in March, the Senate under the leadership of Saraki directed the Committee on Education (Basic and Secondary) to meet with the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, in order to identify causes of the recurring failure in WAEC results with a view to finding solutions.

That resolution followed the adoption of a motion sponsored by Sen. Umaru Kurfi, who described the mass failure of O’ level exams results in the country since 2009 as disgraceful. Kurfi believes that if the trend continues, it will jeopardize the future of today’s youths and the generation after them.

According to him, in the success rate of students who sat the 2009 and 2010 WAEC-organised exams had only 25.99 and 24.94 per cent respectively passed with five credits including Mathematics and English, while the remaining others constituting 70 per cent failed.“In 2011 May/June WAEC, only 86,612 out of the 1,540,250 candidates that participated in the examinations got credit in Mathematics and English. Also in 2011 May/June WAEC, only 86,612 out of 1,540,250 candidates that participated in the examinations got credits in Mathematics and English.

“In 2012 May/June WAEC, only 649,159 out of 1,672,224 candidates that sat for the examinations which represents just 38.81 per cent got five credits and above including in the core subjects of Mathematics and English. In 2013 WAEC, only 29.17 per cent candidates actually passed the November-December WAEC examinations while 70 per cent failed,” Kurfi reeled out the statistics.He added, “In both 2017 and 2018 recent January/February private examinations, only 26.01 per cent and 17.13 per cent candidates had passed with five credits including Mathematics and English respectively, while the remaining over 70 per cent candidates failed.”

The federal lawmaker expressed regret that the future of the country would continue to be bleak if urgent actions were not taken to address the situation.It is the same view expressed by Sen. Barau Jibrin. The legislator stated that urgent steps must be taken to understand causes of the mass failure and lasting solutions to prevent any reoccurrences.

Not only him feels that way. Sen. Emmanuel Paulker said the situation called for a grave concern, attributing the development to the problem from poor quality of education received at the primary school level.

“And it is this same crop of students that will move to the secondary school. Some of them can hardly write or read; without a foundation, there is no way a house can stand. Those formulating our school curriculum must sit up, if not, we have our future doomed,” Paulker argued.On March 13 this year, WAEC had released the result of the newly-introduced February diet for private candidates with only 1,937 out of 11,727 candidates who sat for the exam, obtaining minimum credits and above in five subjects, including English and Mathematics.

Briefing newsmen in Lagos, the Head of National Office, Mr. Olu Adenipekun, pointed out that the 17.13 per cent was lower than the 26.01 per cent recorded for private candidates in 2017. He also disclosed that results of the 1,021 candidates, representing 9.03 per cent, are still being held over reported cases of examination malpractices – the cases were being investigated and reports would be presented to the appropriate committee of the council in due course for consideration.

Adenipekun, who expressed dissatisfaction with the performance of candidates in the examination, said the percentage of pass was lower.Mass failure in exams across the nation is not new and reactions of Nigerians –government officials, teachers and parents have always been the same.Just last year, a mass failure was recorded in the 2017 WAEC exams. At the release of the general results during the 55th Annual Meeting of the Nigeria National Committee, only 34,664 out of 131,485 had five credits including English and Mathematics.

Adenipekun had disclosed that the percentage of candidates in WASSCE, for private candidates, in 2015 and 2016 was 28.58 per cent and 38.50 per cent, respectively.He also disclosed that the results of 14,756 candidates, representing 11.07 per cent of candidates, were withheld for alleged examination malpractice. It was added that cases of withheld results are being investigated and the reports would be presented to the Nigeria Examination Committee for consideration.

In 2015, following the poor outing in the results of candidates that sat the O’ level exam, WAEC said it had found the recipe to the education crisis.One of such recipes was a workshop held in April 2015. At that training programme, more than 400 teachers received training on how to improve teaching and learning in schools.In August 2014, the then HNO of WAEC, Mr. Charles Eguridu, when asked what was responsible for the mass failure had stated, “There are so many factors responsible. One, the teachers are not competent. You can see from the example of what we saw in Edo State, where a teacher could not even read. So how can a teacher impact the knowledge he does not possess? So the quality of teachers in the system is such that one cannot vouch for their competence and you find that even some states were trying to do competency tests for teachers, but this had to be reversed for obvious reasons.

“The other factor is infrastructural decay in the school system. There are no well-equipped libraries or laboratories, and most of the schools don’t have proper amenities. We have seen situations where children were learning under trees. So in such a situation, what do you expect? Another factor that could be responsible is the fact that parents don’t have time to supervise their children. Take the Lagos environment as an example, people leave home as early as 5 am to report to work at 7 am or 8 am, get back home at about 8pm. So what time do they have to supervise their children and ensure that they do their home works or do some reading at home?”

He had added, “Another factor is that the children are distracted. The children are left without being properly counselled. They come back from school and all they are interested in is to either browse the Internet or watch European football leagues, movies and of course, move around with their peers and play football. So, the motivation to read is not even there. When last did we as a people recognise excellence in academia? But footballers are celebrated; they make millions when we win competitions but the best students are not even recognised.

“The most beautiful girl in Africa or Nigeria’s pageant attracts wonderful gifts, money, cars, world tour, and is featured in the media for her beauty. But the one who spent time in the classroom to read and excel in his examination, what do we do for him? He is not celebrated. So the children themselves are not even motivated to read. Why read when playing football for a club side for just six months will give you the money you need in a lifetime?””

To Eguridu, the values of the Nigerian society have become distorted, claiming that Nigerian students are victims of the environment they live in. However, education experts are of the opinion that until the government at all levels up the ante by increasing the spending allocated to education, by improving the quality of capacity of teachers, providing physical and intellectual infrastructure, and incentives for teachers and students, mass failure and malpractice will continue to be the order of the day rather than an exception.
