The Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination is given by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in Nigeria. This board (JAMB) is used to conduct matriculation examinations which are then used as the basis for admission into the tertiary institutions of Nigeria. JAMB will present you with a series of multiple choice questions which are based on your course choices. The questions are arranged uniquely and will be different from the ones presented to any of the others taking the test at the same time. There will be 100 questions in English, as well as 50 each from the three other subjects, specifically Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics.

In the science section such as Chemistry and Physics, the first few pages are filled with calculation questions, whereas the last pages are straight answer questions. It might be advantageous to start on the latter questions and then come back to the calculation questions later.  If you answer the straightforward questions first, then you can better pace yourself and focus on the calculations in a more relaxed manner.  

If biology is one of your subjects, consider going to that section before going to chemistry and physics. It helps to know that you can first focus on the areas of the test that you feel more confident with.In Math you are graded based on the number of questions you answered correctly. It may be to your advantage to not guess at questions you are not confident about knowing the correct answer.

The JAMB is not a pass or fail course. It is a ranking exam. The higher your rank the higher your chances to be accepted into university based on available slots at the various schools/universities. Remember, studying for any exam is almost always the main determiner of the exam score. Studying will greatly help you in this exam.
