JAMB repeated questions on biology

I have done a post on this website addressing the question, “Does JAMB Repeat Past Questions?” On that post, I authoritatively informed my readers that JAMB indeed repeats their past questions.

But when we think about Biology, we know that the subject is very vast and actually has a wide scope. We know that the subject is ever evolving and JAMB can set hundreds of new questions every year if they so wish.

However, JAMB repeats certain questions in Biology exams for reasons best known to them.

So I’m going to devote this post to showing you JAMB Repeated Questions on Biology. Of course, when you have insight into the questions JAMB repeats most, you will prepare better for them.
