Tips You SHOULD Use TO Gain Admission into Unilag
One thing you should never forget while going for admission into huge sought after academic institutions like this, is to focus on your strength.
Never get confused because you aren’t good in one subject or the other. One of the best advice you need, is to focus on the subjects you know and do it well and try your best in others.
“Another wonderful approach to beating the multitudes and gaining admission into Unilag, is by approaching the exam with lot of confidence. Never try to panic and believe in yourself and in your God that your admission is sure. Self confidence + God’s blessing can lead you to places where you won’t believe.
One of the surest methods of boosting your confidence is to start your preparation way before the examination. You need to be adequately prepared.”
Another tip that should always be on your fingertips is this:
“The time allocated to students in this examination is short, less than one minute on each question.
Ensure that you take the time allocation into consideration; don’t waste your time on one question.” UNLIKE PPT (Paper Pencil Test) when the time given to you finishes, the computer automatically closes. It is much more preferable if you do the submission yourself.
