20 Expected Topics And 100 Questions In JAMB Physics 2022

For this sake of my readers writing JAMB Physics, I will share expected topics and questions in JAMB physics 2022.

From my experience as a tutor and lecturer of physics, I know that there are some repeated 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 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.

For candidates that are requesting for JAMB likely questions and answers especially on calculations, I have a prepared Physics guide on JAMB UTME Physics. Click here for preparatory physics guide and download.

More Questions to be expected in JAMB Physics

(2) The motion of a moving skin of a talking drum can rightly be described as – oscillatory

(3) Isotopes are nuclei which has? – the same atomic number but different mass number

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

    1. No, calculations are always guaranteed as questions in physics, you can’t escape it.
      What he means is that these questions are likely to, or may come out in 2021 jamb.
      Calculations will still be among!

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

  2. 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. 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.

  3. I love this.. Thanks
    Please am writing this year where should I focus on not very good at physic please help me

    1. I will advise you focus on scalar and vector quantity, motion, heat capacity, mirror and lens formula, current of electricity, and wave motion.

  4. the site is really great. coming to physics sir, I guess I have big issue with Equilibrium. it’s greatly disturbing me

      1. Sir may Almighty God reward and pls help me by adding me to your WhatsApp group so as to gain more knowledge and experience

  5. Sir I’m not good in solving mathematics questions not to talk of with this exam pressure, sir what do I do, I need your answers please

    1. Don’t panic. Ensure you answer question you first know then come back to the ones you find difficult. Educated guess is also welcome (there is nothing like negative marking in JAMB).

  6. Wow ! awesome, indeed these are mostly repeated questions in jamb past questions.ride on sir…….thanks a lot

  7. Sir please I am preparing for 2022 jamb so I need all the help I can get from physics because am not so good in physics I don’t want to write jamb again for the 3rd time sir pls I need ur help
    My contact info to get in touch

  8. U really try sir mayGod Enrich you more in knowledge, wisdom and understanding and help u in all your endeavors and bless your own too children
