Guide On JAMB Choice Of Course

What should you consider when you are picking a course for JAMB?

Follow Your Passion And Heart:

In whatever you do, make sure to follow your heart. Do you love what you are doing? Let your love or passion for a particular thing is the very first thing to consider when picking a course to study in the university

Please make sure to choose a course that has always been your dream to study.

Do not put in for medicine, law or engineering simply because you want to feel big.

Never Follow Friends:

Do not study engineering because your best friend put in for an engineering course and you want to continue being with him or her. Be a man or woman of your own and learn to make your decisions and stand by it.

Don’t Allow Your Parents Pick A Course For You:

Many parents out of ignorance and greed push their children into a future of endless regrets and misery.

Do not let your parents push you to study a high profile course so that they can feel proud. If you allow yourself to be used as a tool, your life will be miserable.

Consider Your Strength And Weaknesses:

What are your strengths? Have you ever done additional math before? And you are probably planning to study computer science or an engineering course? How good are you in some certain subject? Consider your strength and weaknesses before picking a course to study.

Meet a counselor:

i will advise that you meet a professional counselor in the field of education or a trained psychologist to guide in the decision making process.

Last Resort: Pray. Prayer works wonders whether you believe it or not. To help secure the best course for you, pray before making any choice. I believe in prayer and i believe it will help you.
