Unilag post utme exam date is approaching, How much more time do you have to prepare for it?
Those who procrastinate and say stuff like ” I still have time”, are a correct example of failures.
Time is never in favor of any man, wake up now and start all your preparations, if you wait till you are ready, you are going to be putting your admission on risk.
Are you still hanging out with your friends who aren’t writing the same exam with you, then hear my ultimate call.
It is time to drop every agent of distraction and put in your whole time into preparation.
You have got to start reading like never before.
You need to prepare enough, so start preparing right now.
Practice, as they say, makes perfect.
A person who prepares in three months cannot be compared with someone who only prepared in two weeks.
All your preparation which includes, reading must start early.
3. Zip-off Boyfriend and girlfriend Topics + any Distractions.
Distractions come every day.
The funny part is, you are the one who calls for this distraction.
You are in a very perilous time when the only thing that must be in your head is your admission.
A time would come for other things, but now is the time to prepare for Unilag post utme so that you can score high.
So my very candid advice for you is to drop everything that has to do with boyfriend or girlfriend and ensure you prepare heaven and earth.
In addition to that, distractions, like watching T.v, hanging out, gisting with friends etcetera, must be put on hold for the now.
4. Get all the required materials.

Moreover, being close to other aspirants or even the school is going to improve your chance of information, get yourself a study note and meet people to guide you.
So, by every means ensure you enroll for one.
6. Start Personal Day and Night study.
Without a shadow of a doubt, this is the most important stage.
Remember You are going to be tested on the knowledge you have. So, as a prerequisite, you need to get that knowledge by tasking yourself to read both night and day.
Don’t just read, you need to study in-depth.
And never you waste your time reading unimportant things.
Study and master what is likely to be set. Remember you have to cover a large portion of the scheme.
Your study focus should largely be on past questions.
Whatever you study, ensure you don’t memorize, they’re likely not going to repeat post utme questions even if they do, it would not be in a similar style.
So what you need is an ultimate understanding even when it comes to current affair.
If you learned that the Nigerian flag has three colors or two colors, you must be able to prove it.
That is what I mean by understanding, and not cramming.
Cover a huge portion of your textbooks, make sure you understand what you’re being taught and try solving questions every time of the day.
Here at Osasdivineblog, we recommend night study, we have all guarantee that studying at night helps you remember what you studied.
Nobody wants to read and forget, so bring up the habit of night study.
7. Practice and revise all you studied over and over.
Having applied correctly all the steps above, this step is really necessary.
Have you heard of students, complaining that they studied enough, but they still failed in Unilag post utme?
Well, that’s because they studied to forget.
It is one thing to always study, but it is another thing to revisit what you have read in the past and cast on it a little revision.
Whatever you study, do not do it once.
Visit it again at least twice or three times and it will help you understand better, in a way you will not forget what you studied during the exam.
Ensure you find your weak points, and strengths.
Your weak point maybe, wasting time-solving or answering a question.
Or mistaking an option that is similar to another, forgetting to add zeros, mixing up the points, it could be anything.
You will be able to spot them out and correct them if you study and do revision plus testing your self with past questions.
8. Participate in Unilag online CBT Practice if available.

9. Pray for Success.
I always tell this to all aspirants.
You may be intelligent, but intelligent people fail.
I do not say you should forcefully pray to my God, a lot of people are Christians and some are Muslims.
Whichever aspect you are in, just pray to the God you believe in, I am a hundred percent sure those people who know their God and trust in him for success other than trusting in their self will go far beyond success, such people perform better.
Do not think your effort would be enough, put God first and see what you would score in the exam.
This step is the most important, but I put it as the last tip because hoping on God without you studying is a waste of time, and it equals failure.
In conclusion to all this.
Quit from any form of distractions, study, and trust in God then you will score high in Unilag post utme and also gain admission.
