Most Repeated Topics in JAMB English Exams 2024

What Are the Most Repeated Topics in JAMB English?

The most repeated topics in JAMB English are those topics in the English syllabus that JAMB sets questions from every year. They are the topics in English that JAMB seems to consider very essential. They are the bedrock, core or foundation of English. So JAMB examiners cannot finish setting English questions in a year without picking one or two from each of those topics.

Now that’s what this post is all about — to give you insight into those very essential English topics.

Importance of Knowing and Studying the Most Repeated Topics in JAMB English

Adequate preparation is key to passing Post UTME excellently. A black girl reading.

There are two key examinations students take prior to their admission into tertiary institutions. One is the Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) while the other is the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

Out of the two exams, candidates fear the UTME more. Some of the reasons for this fear may be…
1. The exam is on CBT mode.
2. The syllabuses are rather vast.
3. Time for preparation is always too short.
4. The questions are technical and a bit advanced.
5. It is UTME that largely determines whether a candidate would gain admission or not.
6. And so on…

Considering points number 2 and 3 above, we see why candidates need to know the JAMB most repeated topics in all their subjects.

Reasons Why Candidates Need to Know the Most Repeated Topics in JAMB English

Candidates need to know the most repeated topics in JAMB English for the following reasons…

1. Knowledge of the most repeated topics in JAMB English will give the candidate an idea of the topics UTME questions are likely to come from in the current year as far as English is concerned.

2. That would enable the candidate to pay more attention to the English topics that JAMB examiners are really interested in.
