It’s been said that exams are not the best way to test students’ academic ability or intelligence, hence the examiners are not only using words on papers to judge their candidates.

Candidate’s characters during and after class can also be put into consideration to determine successful candidates. Therefore, every candidate is advised to be in their best behaviour during this test period and hope for the best.

Surprisingly, a word may not even be spoken to you and marks will be awarded. Your dress code and dress mode may fetch you or deduct your mark.

The likely questions and responses written here should not be crammed or sneaked in into the exam hall but every candidate should endeavour to master it. Knowing the possible reasons for a question will help the candidates to know the appropriate answer.

  1. I think some of the questions asked at an interview are so dumb.

    * Tell us your name? How is that a question? You know the applicant’s name before you call him/her for an interview so why the question??

  2. “Tell us your name” is one of the most difficult questions on this list. In my little experience during admission registration, students often than not give us different names from the one on their certificate and it has landed many of them in trouble. If you have Clement Adio Ibrahim on your certificate and you told us at the admission room that your name is Clement Ibrahim Adio, you may have to present the real owner of the certificate you applied with. This slight but common error can make a candidate lose admission. Take heeds.
