LEARN A SKILL
To you this might be the worst idea you have ever read in a blog post but trust me i have been there and so advice are from that point.
Now jamb exam is actually once a year which leave you with three hundred and sixty five days to stay at home and do nothing.
Now lets see what you can do if you don’t learn a skill after you failed jamb exam.
Firstly, Morning you wake up, do house works and everyone leave the house and you are home alone then you carry your phone and boom down to your social media pages, chat till afternoon, maybe wash some clothes and cook and here is mr evening so you embrace mr evening and everyone is back from work you pick up your text book and read few lines then the mr sleep comes and off you go(don’t argue lol. I too did it).
Days after days and boom here comes another jamb and so you have wasted a year doing nothing.
Learning a skill can boost your brain capacity and put some cash in your hand, you might want to ask were you are to get the money from! Well since your mobile phone is your best friend, take a free online class or use youtube to learn something.
Learn a skill. If you like cooking then learn catering. If you love fashion the take a course on beauty and make up and if you are a tech guy like me, learn blogging and coding or computer programming.

APPLY FOR JUPEB OR IJMB
This session of the article ( apply for
jupeb or ijmb if you failed jamb) was gotten from www.alevelprogramme.com . and i bet
it is a good opinion if you failed jamb.
Jupeb stands for Joint Universities Preliminary Examination Board.
The Jupeb Programme originated as a result of different Universities coming together to create an alternative means of tertiary admission for secondary school leavers without JAMB.
JUPEB Programme has proven to be a good alternative to Gaining Admission into Nigerian universities.
Yearly, more than 20,000 students register for jupeb programme and more than 70% of them successfully secure admission with the certificate to their preferred university and desired course of study.
University Commission (NUC) has certified the programme as an advanced level
examination programme that qualifies students into 200level without JAMB UTME
Prospective JUPEB candidates are required to select any THREE (3) A/L JUPEB Subject Combination plus General studies (English Language) identified with their preferred course of study in the university be it Science, Art or Social Science Course. Candidates would undergo lectures for 9-10 months after then they will sit for the Jupeb exam in June.
IJMB: meaning Interim Joint Matriculation Board, a 9-month educational programme approved by the federal government. Ahmadu Bello University moderates the program.
IJMB is a well-known programme all over the federation especially because of it long time existence. Majority of Nigerians did the programme during their undergraduate days in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s even till date.
IJMB is fully
certified by the Nigeria University Commission (NUC) as an ‘A’ Level programme
that serves as a mode of entry into the university. It has been designed to
serve as an alternative to university admission as it requires no JAMB nor post
UTME. It is accepted in 80% of the Nigerian Universities.
Statistics has proven that annually, 20,000
applicants put in for the programme and over 15,000 candidates secure admission
with it into 200Level (Direct Entry) to any preferred universities and courses
of their choice as compared to JAMB which close to 1.6 million applicants sits
for and 20% of them get admitted.
APPROVED: IJMB is approved by the Federal Government has a platform for securing admission into higher institution in the country and abroad.
IJMB is Guaranteed: Every year, more than 30,000 applicants put in for JUPEB programme in which not less than 70% of candidates secure admission into 200 level to their preferred institution and courses.
HOW IJMB WORKS
Interested IJMB candidates are expected to select any three (3) subjects that are related to their choice of study in the university.
Candidates would then be lectured on the
three subjects for a period of 9months. After the 9months candidates would then
sit for an exam and would be awarded points.
The points given are: A=5 points, B=4 points, C=3 points, D=2 points, E=1
point, F=0 point
OF COURSE FORM
Candidate who failed jamb exam can actually
do a change of form and apply for another university that accept their jamb score. The
jamb change of course form should be about #3000 to #4000. So you can apply for a change of course form if you failed jamb.
Jamb course of form is easy to access if you are willing to follow the process or better you can apply for it via any cyber cafe centre near you. Exams of schools that accept jamb score below 200 is AAU. Here are the faculty and courses offered by aau.

Reading before the exam give you and advantage and you learn how to improve your memory as a student.
If you have failed jamb before, you might find this step useful. if you really don’t want to either do a change of course form or make use of the jamb or jupeb means, i advice you to start reading and at the same time learn a trade.
I really wouldn`t advice you to go and work for someone, it is better you learn and grow. Read as much as you can and if you really like book that much, start a tutorial class on jamb and i bet you will beat the next jamb exam.
But this time, read with past questions and ensure to read smart not hard, ensure not to make mistake in your choice course to avoid the top 5 major career excuse and lies student make.
