The Nigerian Military Schools Entrance Examinations Guides
Revise Your Math, English Language, and Other Subjects
During the NMS pre-admission entrance examination exercise, Candidates will be tested on Mathematics, English Language, Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Aptitude and General Knowledge. Candidates are advised to prepare well in these subject areas to enable them to score high and thereby boost their chances of being invited for the Selection Interview. A compendium of past questions can be obtained from all the Nigerian Army Divisions and Brigade Education at the rate of One Thousand Naira (N1,000.00) only per copy.
Know Your Centre in Advance
Candidates are advised to try and find out the main road(s) as well as alternative roads to their chosen examination centres at least 48 hours to the day of the exams. This is to avoid transportation delays that may cause them to arrive late or miss the exams on the scheduled day. By trying to find out the roads and location early in advance, candidates will be able to familiarize themselves and identify any potential transportation hitches that may dim their chances of getting admitted into NMS.
Get Your Writing Materials Ready
All candidates should bring their pens and mathematical sets (containing pencils, sharpeners, erasers, etc) to the entrance examination centre. No notebooks or textbooks whatsoever are allowed. Candidates are, however, advised to print clear, sharp copies of their Application Form, Exam Photocard and Payment Advice Slip from the NMS Portal and present them at the Exam Centre when requested.
Get Good Sleep, Eat Some Breakfast
All candidates are expected to arrive at their chosen examination centres not later than 7:00am. The excitement notwithstanding, candidates should endeavour to have a good night rest before the day of the exam and also have some light breakfast to keep them fully awake and mentally alert during the examination.
The Nigeria Military School Selection Interview
Improve Your Health and Physical Fitness
All candidates invited for the Selection Interview will be made to undergo compressive physical and medical examinations. As such, it is a good idea for candidates to improve their health and general fitness levels well before the invitation. Candidates are advised to eat healthy meals and observe good hygiene every time so as to avoid illnesses that could make them unfit for the selection process. Doing some simple, age-appropriate exercises at least 3 times a week will also help. Candidates do not need to engage in Olympic-grade physical training activities, however!
Get Your Documents In Order
Soon after starting to fill the application form online, it is important that candidates start preparing all their papers and certificates as may be required for the Selection Interview. Failure to come to the screening venue or centre with all the required documents leads to immediate disqualification. The originals of the following documents must be presented by each and every candidate invited for the Selection Interview
- Primary School Leaving Certificate.
- Birth Certificate.
- Completed Local Government Certificate of Origin.
- Application Form printed from the NMS Portal.
- Exam Photocard printed from the NMS Portal.
- Payment Advice Slip printed from the NMS Portal.
Improve Your Confidence
The Selection will consist of various personnel, including officers in and out of uniform. Candidates should endeavour to build their confidence so that they will be able to comport themselves well while appearing before a panel of interviewers without any form of shyness or stage fright.
Make sure you are well-dressed in simple but smart clothing on the interview day. Also, be sure to lift your head up and be audible while answering questions.
