There are basic things you need to know before embarking on the exam. let me list some of them

ASCON is not a too difficult exam, but yet people still fail it as a result of lack of preparation and necessary info before writing the exam. There are basic things you need to know before embarking on the exam. let me list some of them:

1. you need to have basic knowledge of statistics, you need to be current with old and new happenings in Nigeria and elsewhere, you should be able to write a good English essay and knowledgeable on how to answer difficult comprehension questions etc.

2. Do everything possible to score at least a B. But try and make an A. let me tell u something you may not know, ASCON, awards their grade based on your ability to have a pass mark in all the four papers you are required to write. For example, for you to make an A, you must at least score 40, (which is the pass mark in ASCON) in each of the papers you wrote. That’s you are required to score 40 in English lang, logical thinking, statistical inferences, and General paper. Therefore, if you score less than 40 in any of the papers you will not make an A. if you score less than 40 in only one paper you will make B and it goes like that. so the secret is that you don’t need to make big scores in any of the papers, just concentrate on making a pass mark in each of the papers. Most people who make less than A in ASCON, doesn’t know about this.

3. You have to read hard because most people you will see there are civil servants who are mostly not prepared for the exam, hence they always depend on any young person around them.

4. Finally, if you want to pass then don’t joke with their pass question papers and study pack. if you study them religiously, I bet you will make an A. ASCON is important especially if you have ambition in working in govt. MDAs as it will elevate you to a higher position than somebody who doesn’t have it. Remember, it is a form of promotional exam for civil servants.
