Materials needed to prepare for nnpc/snepco scholarship National University examination
What I want to discuss is my personal opinion and not from NNPC/SNEPCo. However, from the information gathered from those that wrote the examination last year, it was gathered that the format of the test will be communicated if you are shortlisted. The format for last year was Mathematics (50 questions, They were pure mathematics questions with some traces of basic further mathematics question (basic calculus)) and English 50 questions (Antonyms & Synonyms & other normal lexis and structure Comprehension passage).
Last year calculators were not allowed and it was CBT.
SNEPCO Scholarship past question: Lay your hands on JAMB past questions and study tthem. It is now common that snepco aptitude test is from JAMB past questions. This is what my students who won the scholarship told me.
