How to Score Above 70% in N-POWER Online Test?
Scoring higher completely depends on how valid and fast you can be. Since twenty (20) questions are to answered in twenty (20) minutes, you are to answer each question in 1 minute or even faster.
Another question to ask is how fast do you think? How instantly does your brain method data into information? To be more specific: if you see a question for the initial time, how quickly do you understand the question, and how fast do you come up with an answer to that question, and how careful is the answer?
You need to ask yourself these questions, know your courage and weakness(es) before taking the test. For example, you may be very sharp to understand a question, and smarter to provide an answer, but your answers are mostly wrong. Or you may be very slow to understand a question and very slow to provide an answer, but your answers are primarily right.
Both circumstances are personal characteristics of different individuals, but neither of them will sit well with any candidate striving to score nothing less than 70%. You have to work on yourself before taking the test, and often considering the time factor.
To score higher in the N-POWER test, do the following
Act on your brain: To get any specific result, you have to take yourself out of your comfort zone and work on yourself, and most greatly to work on your Brain.
Take brain teasers/Riddles: After that, take brain teasers/riddles and record how fast you attempt questions and how valid your answers are.
Get better: No matter the outcome of the brain teasers, try to get better at it. Do this a couple of moments before taking the test.
Know acronyms: Try and know popular acronyms connected to Nigeria, most particularly. Some acronyms were asked during the test; an example is PHCN. Do you know its full meaning yet?
Know how to use a calculator: Some simple arithmetic questions were asked together with some word problem. If you can pilot your way to finding the answers using a calculator, you are useful to go.
Revisit Idioms: Some idiomatic expressions were stated and the meaning was asked. An example is “to cry a wolf”. Do you know its meaning yet?
Know how to ‘fill in the blank’: Fill in the blank questions were also asked. To know how to fill in blank space(s) with the reasonable words grammatically will go a long way to scoring bigger. Also, know how to use prepositions and know which personal preposition you are to use at a specific instance.
Lastly and most importantly, learn how to use google search. 90% or more of the questions were just copied from other questions and answer websites on the internet. If you could copy a particular question, paste it on google, I assure you would get the answer from the original site together with the answer in no time. But before doing this: make sure you have a very strong and credible network, a super-fast phone and you must be very fast. Don’t fail to be time conscious.
