JAMB 2022/2023 recommended texts for Literature in English
The main reason for this article is to discuss about JAMB 2023/2024 recommended texts for literature in English, some aspects of Art-division for the JAMB 2023/2024, and what you should know about it as an Art-student. You know JAMB normally gives out the syllabus for each subject every year, which means you should have known about the areas of concentration in each subject. Presently, JAMB Management has not declared an official syllabus for any subject.
It is easy to score more than the cutoff mark for your desired course in the art department if you are serious enough. This is simply because JAMB will not go beyond what is in the syllabus for each subject.
All the Prospective JAMBITES in the art department who wish to sit for UTME 2023/2024 are hereby advised to read the below guides carefully without skipping any part.
1 Discussion about the JAMB 2023/2024 recommended texts in literature in English.
2 Gathering of ideas about the recommended text in Literature in English for JAMB 2022/2023.
3 Summarization of the whole article.
1) Discussion about the JAMB 2023 recommended texts in literature in English: The previously recommended texts in Literature in English in all the genres which are DRAMA, PROSE, AND POETRY are likely to be changed. Below are the examples of the texts on each genre of literature that was used for both JAMB, WAEC, NECO from the year 2016 to 2020.

- POETRY (non-African)
The proud King
Crossing the bar
The Schoolboy etc.
But for this JAMB 2023, the texts has been changed, and the reasons are;
- JAMB normally follows the syllabus in Literature in English in WAEC, and NECO, etc. And if you have reviewed the syllabus for WAEC in Literature in English, you will notice that they have changed the texts for this year’s examination. So JAMB will also change it to the same texts as WAEC did.
- If you have the textbook for Literature in English titled EXAM FOCUS, try to check the front page of the book you will see the year it will be outdated and that is 2016-2020. This means that the book is no longer useful, either for WAEC, NECO, or JAMB examination. So you need to make sure you update to the new JAMB 2023/2024 recommended texts for literature in English that will be highlighted below.
