To explain further…

The student will register for JUPEB, pick 3 subjects related to the proposed course and a general subject. At the end of the program, the student will take the JUPEB examination.

One subject will be divided into four courses and all students two courses out of all the subjects in a semester. At the end of the second semester, the results of all the courses will be calculated together to get a final grade point.

Students will take 12 courses obtained from the 3 required subjects, and 4 courses from the general subject. Which takes the total sum of courses per semester to be 8.

It is the university that will suggest the relevant and general subjects to be taken for each course at the university. Each student will get a certificate at the end of the program, the certificate will indicate the performance of the student in grades A, B, C, D, and E in each subject.

Some of the universities do have other conditions for each student to adhere to in addition to the JUPEB examination certificate. As a student, you are advised to comply with the university you will choose.

How To Study Smart And Pass JUPEB

Let us start this part with a secret. What is the secret?

If you want to excel beyond your colleagues in school, start reading your book 2 days before the exam.

Why is this a secret? Because most students study a day before the exam.

And if you know that studying 2 days before the exam will give you an edge above your colleagues. How good will you be when you start studying 5 months earlier.

I hope you get the idea.
