JAMB is a game of luck that’s what I was told when I registered my first JAMB in 2014. I was discouraged and I didn’t bother much to read and when results were released, I was perplexed and taken aback because I couldn’t secure admission to the university. I got 142.
Many parents shift the massive failures in the qualifying examination to the teachers and the students, but they do not bother about the mindset of their children towards education.
The logic is simple, it’s either you know or you don’t know and to know you must read. The culture of reading has long been forgotten as students prioritise social media, video games, footballs, and other unnecessary activities which are time demanding, and have very little impact on their lives.
Social media is not bad but it has negative effect, especially on students. Thus, there is the need for parents to regulate their children’s use of social media because it’s difficult to disassociate the recent massive failure in JAMB from the use of social media.
The excessive use of social media is one of the reasons many students fail their exams. They have been brainwashed that even if you didn’t read hard you will pass your exams, in their infertile but mischievous thinking that everyone can pass his/her exams because it is computer-based, that is why most of them spend their time on various social platforms.
Teachers shouldn’t be blamed. As the best teacher can do is to teach and guide the student while in class. This has summed it all as any student who is ready to learn should go for their extra reading and parents must encourage and motivate their children to study hard and pass their exams with grades.
