– You Are Expected To Have Finished Past Questions : This is a no-brainer and the reason behind it is not far-fetched. This is the best bet when it comes to preparation for exams, it might save you a whole lots of time reading a very huge textbook aimlessly, thereby going off point by covering a syllabus you wouldn’t even need in 10years time.
Past questions give you an insight on the nature of questions and how the exam you are preparing for will most probably look like. Put yourself in the exam condition and attempt to solve some of the questions, if you are unable to attempt and get any of the questions correctly, give yourself a hard knock and read harder . But mostly, you will be able to attempt few, if not much of the questions, then check up the difficult topics in a recommended text material. By doing this, you will discover that you have actually covered a lot more than you expected.
NOTE : Reading and understanding past questions is quite different from cramming them, as its no guarantee that same questions will be repeated, although at times, it happens.
- OAU Post UTME Is Simple : I did mine a couple of years ago and trust me if I said gone are those days the screening exam was hard like it was being set by some cruel structures in the pit of hell. Art students will actually have nothing to fear, all their questions will be too cheap,
a science student will probably pass it. Mathematics and Biology will be the freebie of the day for science students, bonus chilling.
- OAU Post UTME Exam Duration Might Not Be Friendly : Yes, the exam is simple but the time you will be given might not be enough for a girl to make-up her lips. In a space as short as an hour, you are requested to submit. Science students should be as fast as possible, especially those offering CMP as their combination.
- Attending Die-Minute Tutorials Might Help : You will see series of tutorials like some days to the exam, you might want to get yourself into one. It refreshes your memory and at the same time open your mind to some things you didn’t understand.
- The Exam Day Will Be Clumsy : As expected, the whole campus will be like a maintained population and reduced size of Onitsha Market.
- The Exam Result Takes Nothing More Than 2Days To Be Released : As expected from the ICT leading institution in Nigeria. OAU will not keep you waiting and anticipating. You get your results as fast as possible.
However, in everything you do, there is God, Confess this prayer excerpt before the exam :
Dear Lord, as I take this exam, I thank you that my value is not based on my performance, but on your great love for me.
Thank you for the many talents and gifts you have
given me and for the opportunity of education.
Come into my heart so that we can walk through this time together.
Help me, not only with this exam, but the many challenges of life that are sure to come my way.
As I take this exam, bring back to my mind everything I studied and be gracious with what I have overlooked.

and firm in the knowledge that no matter what happens today you are there with me.
