Some students are sometimes confused about what the JAMB syllabus means. JAMB syllabus simply means the content of a particular subject.

The “content” is the major topics on which JAMB set their questions from. It can be also defined as the spare part of JAMB that compiles all the functional body.

Studying the syllabus really means a lot for anybody who wishes to sit for JAMB. The syllabus doesn’t stop only for JAMB only, it would be used in the future for Post-UTME examinations.

As far as the race is concerned, if you read well during the JAMB session, you will surely pass the Post-UTME questions set by higher institution managements.

Post-UTME questions may little differ from JAMB, but their questions are all sourced from the secondary school curriculum.

Mathematics is the simplest subject among all other subjects, although many students find it difficult to understand sometimes. One thing about it is that you can never scale through without the intention of understanding and countless revisions.

You must solve and resolves repeatedly before you will be able to get it. Once you understand it well, you can solve countless questions without thinking wise.

The JAMB Mathematics syllabus is not much complicated, just make sure you treated all the contents twice or more than that.

  • MATRICES AND DETERMINANTS
  • PROGRESSION
  • VARIATION
  • BINARY OPERATIONS
