Tips For Passing LAUTECH CBT Exams


Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Ogbomoso is one of the top universities in Nigeria that conducts computer based tests (CBT) for its students. The tradition which start most especially for the 100level students starts some years back. And by all indication, it has come to stay and advance more. Therefore, if you are a present Lautech Student or upcoming , there is no way you can escape writing a computer based test.
That is why we have come up with this article to help students, especially Ladokite perform better in their CBT exams.

Before the CBT Exam

Passing any examination has to do with the preparation one has made prior to the examination date. There is no exception with CBT examinations. These are what you should do before the exam date.
READ SMARTER: I often hear people say CBT exam in Lautech is a game of luck. While they might be right in some instances, they are not absolutely correct. Passing CBT exam in Lautech require you to read smart. This is a perfect example of not a matter of how far but how well. The way you read for CBT exam should be different from the way you will read if you were writing PPT. Make extensive use of shortcuts and codes while reading for CBT. This will help with retention a lot. Try to cover the whole course material. Since it is CBT, it wont be difficult for the questionnaire to draw questions from every single topics taught in class. Remember, READ Smarter not harder.
PAST QUESTIONS: This is another resources to utilize very well if you intend to pass the CBT exam you have next. Most of the times, questions are repeated and it is going to be a bonus for you if you had gone through the past questions. It is often said that Lautech does not have new questions. However, you must be careful not to rely entirely on that presumption as change is constant. Once again, Read Smart.
KNOW YOUR VENUE: Lautech CBT venue is often batched according to matric number for 100level students. Therefore, you need to know your venue and the batch you are in. This is also how you will know your exam time. Knowing this ahead of time lets you prepare for the exam day better.
GET NECESSARY DOCUMENTS: From your course forms to your ID cards (if given already), get all the necessary documents that would be required of you at the venue ready. This would avoid last minute rushing and frustrations.
NIGHT BEFORE: Some students prefer to read throughout the night before their CBT exam. This is a very bad habit. No one asks you to prove superhuman because at the end of the day, it is still going to tell on your performance. Ever heard of students slumping during CBT exams in Lautech? this is part of the reason. No one can deny the body of its needs. Sleep when you have to so that you can be well rested on the exam date for your brain to perform well. Note that it is not what you read on the night before the exam that matters, a smart student would have read ahead and only revise during this time.
EAT: your breakfast is important. Your brain needs glucose to function well, do not deny it of this necessity. Make sure you eat something before going for the exam. Planning ahead will make this easier.
GET THERE EARLY: get to the exam centre early. It is a bad practice to sit back at home waiting for your friends to call you that the exam have started. Some LADOKITES would even come to school early but go ahead and immerse themselves in books at the library (at a time they are supposed to be at the exam venue!). Avoid these by all means as rushing of any manner to the exam hall will put you in a bad psychological state that could lead to bad performance in the exam. So what is the use of the last minute revision when you enter the exam hall heart on the race.
DRESS WELL: Dress well to the examination centre. This is a prerequisite for admission to the exam venue. In fact, there is a centre exam centre in LAUTECH that if you do not dress well, you will not be allowed entrance no matter what. So always take care of your dressing when going for CBT exam in LAUTECH
COMPOSURE: This is an integral part of making success in a CBT exam. It is a determining factor whether you will pass or not. It is the reason why the supposedly brilliant are performing below expectation in CBT exams. You have to compose yourself to achieve a calm approach towards your CBT exam.
MANAGE THE STRESS: Avoid stressing yourself before you enter the exam hall in every way you can. This might be impossible in the LAUTECH situation but you have to try  not to go through unnecessary stress especially while trying to enter the exam hall.
REVIEW AND SUBMIT: If you had manage your time well as discussed above, you will be able to review your work. It is always good because this will give you the opportunity to see what you might have missed the first time. And most importantly, make sure you submit your exam by yourself before the counter elapse.

MANAGE YOUR TIME: Manage your time well. Time management is important in CBT exam most especially because the system is not going to wait for you to submit before it the counter goes off. Always know that CBT questions have been set in such a way that the smart student would be able to answer all the questions within the given time. Therefore, you cannot say the time is not enough when you have managed your time very well. While writing CBT exam, observe the quaint code of coming back to the questions you don’t understand. Like that, you will be saving time and also have the chance to answer the simpler questions ahead.REVIEW AND SUBMIT: If you had manage your time well as discussed above, you will be able to review your work.
