today’s exam Was cool just make sure you don’t rush yourself make sure you gently read the instructions before You start….. most important prayers first… then take a deep breath and breath out then you are set. to start as long as you read for the exam dont be afraid remember faith+work=success
4. Akande (4:19 pm)
I wrote my exam today. The exam was not so tough as some pessimists have been commenting just to scare others that have not written.
The questions are direct but asked in a curning way and the technicality is also there.
My advice for those that have not written is that try your best and prepare adequately as you can and during the examination, be very precise and objective. Waste no time cos no time to check time.

10. Abiodun (11:53 am)
My name is Ibiyemi Abiodun Wáles. I did my exam at Global distance learning institute Maitama/Garki Abuja. My jamb story goes thus:
I woke up very early to make my way down to the centre which was located at a noticeable area in the street of Abuja, just opposite the Ministry of Finance Headquarters. I got to my centre at exactly 6:12am and met candidate outside the Centre gate since it wasn’t opened yet. I revised the text given for some minutes and immediately 6:32am the checking in started after which accreditation proceeded immediately. It was a conducive environment and we were made to sit in a big hall that was almost freezing cold. Just at 7:20 we moved into the Examination Hall and waited patiently for instructions before we could proceed with the exam. The exam went well with no system error of any kind except for some students I found strange due to the fact that to input their reg number was a big task for them. They were helped with no mockery of any sort.
There was a guy who incessantly complained about his system that pops out “error”, at the end only to find out that he clicked wrongly on tabs at intervals which got the supervisor dragging.
I did my exams to the best of my knowledge and found the English language very easy and more than an exam should be “no bragging” but the che, phy,maths not funny due to limited time to solve but all thanks to God still.
To sum up, we almost finished same time due to the fact we started almost at the same time. I Ended my exam and I stayed around to check if there would be any problem around to report but none.
Thanks to the candidates that shared their experiences. Wishing other candidates who are yet to write the best.
