Having done multi choice questions for several years, while in school (secondary) and of course jamb, post jamb.
Most of my courses during my first and second year in the university were mainly multi choice questions, I had choices and I tried my best to make sure I made the best decisions with my choices.
There is no one who in his or her entire life has not come across objective or multiple choice questions.
Most examinations usually start with multiple choice questions to test students of their ability.
Most of these examination that come with multiple choice always have limited time to finish, the question is; how to answer multiple choice questions or objective questions correctly and fast?
1. Be informed.
Most people do not score get much much information before writing a multi choice exam, what I believe is if you are still writing multiple choice examination, all you need do after each class is google multiple choice questions on that topics which was treated in class that day. Let assume you did “Osmosis ” today and after class you search on google for multiple choice questions on osmosis, you will have ideas on what to read seriously or slightly.
And this gives me idea on the area of which each question is pointing to. This is the first step in answering multiple choice questions.
most multiple questions are being set based on negative and positive evaluations, I learnt this few years ago, once you are in the examination hall, you need to be aware of trying to cancel the old, negative and positive answers out and most times the odd ones are usually the answers but in a situation where the question is technical, you need to answer intelligently to avoid losing mark.
After you’ve correctly identified the right type of question, you always want to do a quick evaluation of the answers. Often the types of answers given will suggest which is right. If you are surprised by the answers given, you have to be sure you read the question correctly.
You should be able to eliminate some negative point out Of The answers to know exactly which do not belong to the question.
Which Of The following do not belong ?
Now, anyone who do not know How To solve technical question will go for man, of which man is the wrong answer, chicken is definitely the right answer.
Man, cattle and rat has the same circulatory system while chicken do not.
Yeah, this is the most interesting part of it. For example, you were given option A to E, you should be able to eliminate at least two that you clearly sure it’s wrong.
4. Separate answers.
In a situation where you have one questions appearing more than once and you are not sure of which answer is correct, save yourself the headache of picking one answer at all point, do critical thinking, technical answering and pick different answers for the many times it appears, you can pick the answer you are convinced is correct most time.
5. Visit online site for questions.
During my second year, I happen to see most of my questions before getting into the examination hall, and this was because I have several online site where I read and solve questions from. Most at times, those questions I solve are often harder than the one I meet in the examination hall but the most important thing is they expose me to more ways to answer my questions well during examination.
In a situation where everything mentioned above doesn’t work, you can go for guessing but make sure you guess right like a magician.
Good grades in your examination.
