The Right Approach to Preparing for Unilag School of Foundation Studies Entrance Examination

We received a mail from Darlington in Rivers State and it goes:
“Good day sir, sir please I want to know the right approach for preparing for school of foundation studies.”

We recommend 3 steps:

ii) Attempt the 5 model tests on our online test platform at;
iii) In the final week to the exam attempt the CBT on the School of Foundation Studies online application portal.
Following these steps, and ensuring you are continuously improving through your preparation process is the right approach.
