20 Expected Topics And 100 Questions In JAMB Physics

For this sake of my readers writing JAMB Physics, I will share expected topics and questions in JAMB physics 2020. From my experience as a tutor and lecturer of physics, I know that there are some topics in physics that JAMB can’t do without bringing out questions.

So, if you want to pass physics in JAMB and score above 60, you must take master these topics and make sure you solve all possible questions in them.

I know that writing physics in the exam isn’t as easy as other subjects, but early preparation can help you build the muscle to score high in it.

  1. can you tell me question that jamb have respected in physics

  2. Ogbonna Ugochukwu Innocent. says:

    Thank you for your effort sir. But those it mean that there will be no calculation on physics during jamb exams.

  3. Motion electricity mirror lens wave machine

  4. How about calculations

    1. Bolarinwa Olajire says:

      I have added a guide that can be download on the page. There are enough solved calculations there.

    Sir please, i need to know. what should i do a week to JAMB examination? and how can i prepare adequately in order to pass above 200 since i didn’t prepare and follow JAMB syllabus on time?
    please sir i need your replies sir, its urgent please…. i know i want to score above 200 but i haven’t gone far in my syllabus and am just having some days to the exams starting from yesterday. what can i do sir? its also scary for the fact that am under serious pressure in matters of getting into school this year.
    i just want to be among those that will be preparing for POST UTME pleaaasee! help a lost fellow like me here

    1. Bolarinwa Olajire says:

      Don’t put unnecessary pressure on yourself. Just try to solve like 4 -5 years past questions and browse through important topics, you will definitely score more than 200 if you use this approach.

  6. Thanks but i need ur help

  7. Thanks and God bless u.

  8. Please , could u explain optics more , o Really need to understand it more
