Emmanuel Egbe commenced with a brief recap of the previous session, paving the way for the coordinator to assume the role of facilitator.

  • L: Learning Environment
  • O: Organization
  • T: Timing

Participants were encouraged to devise personalized study schedules to delineate study objectives and allocate time efficiently. Emphasis was placed on cultivating conducive learning environments free from distractions, ensuring access to all necessary study materials.

Engaging with past examination questions emerged as a pivotal strategy for familiarizing oneself with exam formats and refining test-taking skills. Additionally, the formation of study groups was encouraged to foster collaborative learning and facilitate peer-to-peer support.

The significance of time management in optimizing study sessions was underscored, prompting participants to adopt structured study intervals and prioritize subjects based on individual proficiency levels.

Furthermore, participants were urged to maintain open lines of communication with educators, parents, guardians, and mentors, leveraging their guidance and expertise to address challenging subject matter effectively.

Throughout the session, volunteers facilitated discussions on study group dynamics and shared insights into drafting personalized study timetables, fostering a collaborative learning environment enriched with diverse perspectives.

In closing, participants were encouraged to engage in frequent revision, refrain from tracking text with their fingers, and embrace iterative learning processes to solidify comprehension and retention of study material.
