1. Obliterate Your Fears

If you are scared because someone told you that WAEC examination is difficult; you are already building a foundation for your failure. WAEC isn’t as difficult as many candidate have exaggerated. If you have the notion of fear, because you think WAEC examination is difficult; you are likely to fail the examination.
Fear obliterates your ambitiousness and enthusiasm. Thus, making it less possible for you to pass in the examination. If you really want to pass WAEC examination, then you should obliterate your fears. This is the first and foremost step to take, if you want a stupendous result in WAEC examination.

 2. Be Determined To Pass

Determination is another good way to prepare properly for WAEC examination. If you really want to pass WAEC examination, you have to be very determined to make good grades. It will be very difficult to pass any examination without first, making up your mind to pass the exam. Determination does more than just instigating the enthusiasm and ambitiousness you need to pass examinations, it helps you obliterate fear and inculcate a pessimistic notion towards the examination.

 3. Create A Reading Timetable

A timetable is also needed to prepare properly for WAEC examination. While creating your timetable, you must ensure that more time is slated to your core subjects. For instance, if you want to study law, your time table should provide at least 2 hours each to your core five subjects (I.e English, Mathematics, Literature, CRS/IRS and Government). Doing this will help you pass with more or better grades on your recommended subjects, as passing them is compulsory. However, you still have to make out time to study other subjects.
At part from the fact that creating a timetable keep you organise, it also help you cover up every recommended topic before the inception of the examination.

Bonus Tips: 
Getting the right materials for WAEC examination is also very important. Ensure that you have at least 70% of the recommended text and materials you will need to prepare properly for the examination, and read them relentlessly.

 4. Set A Grade For Yourself
Sometimes, it is very important to predict or set a grade for yourself, and follow them up with reading.This is another stupendous tips to prepare properly for WAEC examination. Even if you eventually, don’t meet up to the grades, there is only going to be a slight difference between your predicted grade and what you eventually attain at the end of the examination.
Predicting your grade before examination, conforms you to work towards meeting up the score you have predicted. So, it is absolutely right to say that setting or predicting a grade for yourself to meet, is another good way to prepare for WAEC examination.

 5. Read Voraciously

Yes, this is another important preparation tool to pass WAEC examination. You cannot pass WAEC examination with good grades, except you read voraciously and on time too. Reading it the key to every examination. The importance of reading cannot be overemphasized. So, to get yourself fortified for WAEC examination; you must read voraciously.
WAEC is not a first, second or third term examination. It is not a class examination. It is an examination that test you on everything you learned in secondary school. This is the key reason why reading relentless is very paramount for candidates who want to prepare properly for WAEC examination.
 6. Study Past Questions
After spending much time, researching on how to make WAEC examination less complex for candidates, I discovered that WAEC often repeat questions. And this, is another awesome secret many candidate don’t know. There are two main reasons why it is essential to study past WAEC questions viz:
  • It helps you understand how questions are set
  • It puts you in examination condition
Believe me, if you study past questions assiduously, you can make “Cs” in WAEC examination even without textbooks. This is because, most WAEC questions are picked from the previously asked ones. However, I didn’t say reading your textbooks and note books are needless, I am only trying to establish the reasons why reading past questions is key. So, you are expected to read everything (Including your notebooks and textbooks).

 7.  Obey Common Instructions

Sometimes what disqualifies a candidate is not his/her inability to answer questions, but his/her inability to follow common instructions while answering questions. There are many instructions candidates writing WAEC examination are expected to adhere to. One of the most observed one is that, a WAEC candidate is not allowed to write in the margin line of his/her answer sheets.
If you fail to adhere to this instruction, and went ahead to write on it, your success in that subject becomes a probability. Because the person who will mark your script may decide to totally fail you because of it.
There are many other instructions candidates are expected to adhere to. But all I want you to understand is that, reading instructions before examination is very essential, as failure to read them, may totally jeopardised your success in the examination.
8. Invite God
It is difficult if not totally impossible to pass WAEC Examination without God. Sometimes, how far or how well you write in examinations does not really matter. Acknowledging God before taking any exam is prerequisite. Make sure you pray before entering your examination hall.
There have been cases where brilliant students fail WAEC examination (probably because of some tribal mistakes they shouldn’t have made). So, it is worthwhile to call on God; to help you. However, this does not mean you shouldn’t read hard. Note that your success is in your own hands.
