INTRODUCTION

Good day viewers and welcome to poschools, Today, I will be listing out topics Jamb sets almost every year I call them “Jamb Biology Hot Topics”. I always advise student to read and study Jamb Biology Hot Topics fist before studying other topics.

Jamb Biology Syllabus

The Jamb Biology Syllabus is available by CLICKING HERE. Students who have seen the Jamb Biology syllabus often get frustrated because of the large number of topics.

The 2019 Jamb Biology syllabus has 23 different topics. Although, I will encourage you to study all 23 topics so that you blast the Jamb exam. Get this now, “Efficiency is all you need“. It is better to study 75% of the topics in Jamb syllabus to blast Jamb with ease(Jamb Biology Hot Topics).

Rather than studying all the 23 topics on the Jamb Biology syllabus and yet you cant still answers question fro those topics.

Below is a list of Jamb Biology Hot topics.

List Of Jamb Biology Hot Topics

1. Living organisms:

Since biology is the study of life, one of jamb biology hot topics is the living organism, Questions are set from this topic almost every year.Therefore its very necessary to get the full knowledge of this Jamb biology hot topics.

i.Learn to differentiate between the characteristics of living and non-living things.
ii.Learn to identify the structures of plants and animal cells.
iii.Learn to analyse the functions of the components of plants and animal cells.
iv.Learn to compare and contrast the structure of plant and animal cells.
v.Learn to trace the levels of organization among organisms in their logical sequence in relation to the five level of organization of living organisms.

2. Evolution among the following:

This is another Jamb biology hot topics. Expect questions from this topic.

i. Learn analyse external features and characteristics of the listed organisms:
ii  Learn to. apply the knowledge from (i)Learn to above to demonstrate increase in structural complexity .
iii. Learn to trace the stages in the life histories of the listed organisms.
iv. Learn to apply the knowledge of the life histories to demonstrate gradual transition from life in water to life on land.
v. Learn to trace the evolution of the listed plants.
Candidates should be able to:
i. Learn to trace the advancement of the invertebrate animals.
ii. Learn to determine the economic importance of the insects studied.
iii. Learn to asses their values to the environment.
i. Learn to trace the advancement of multi-cellular animals.
ii. Learn to determine their economic importance.

3. Structural/functional and behavioural adaptations of organisms.

Here is another Jamb biology hot topics. Questions always come from this jamb biology hot topics.

i. Learn to describe how the various structures, functions and behaviour adapt these organisms to their environment, and way of life

ii.Learn to differentiate various castes in social insects like termites and their functions in their colony hive.

iii.to account for adaptation in organisms with respect to the following:

  • Obtaining food (beaks and legs of birds, mouthparts of insects especially mosquito, butterfly and moth.)
  • Protection and defence (stick insects, praying mantis and toad).
  • Securing mates (redhead male and female Agama lizards, display of fathers by birds).
  • Regulating body temperature (skin, feathers and hairs)
  • Conserving water (spines in plants and scales in mammals).

4. Internal structure of a flowering plant

Here is another Jamb biology hot topics. Questions always come from this jamb biology hot topics.

i.Learn to identify the transverse sections of these organs.
a.Learn to relate the structure of these organs to their functions.
b.Learn to Identify supporting tissues in plants (collenchyma) sclerenchyma, xylem and phloem fibres)
c.Learn to describe the distribution of supporting tissues in roots, stem and leaf                                                 
ii. examine the arrangement of the mammalian internal organs.
iii.Learn to describe the appearance and position of the digestive, reproductive and excretory organs.

5. Nutrition

Nutrition is one topic you can escape from jamb biology. Therefore, it should be among jamb biology Hot topics.

i. Learn to compare the photosynthetic and chemosynthetic modes of nutrition;
ii.Learn to provide examples from both flowering and non- flowering plants.

iii. Learn to compare autotrophic and heterotrophic modes of nutrition.

iv.Learn to differentiate the light and dark reactions, and state conditions necessary for photosynthesis.
v.Learn to determine the necessity of light, carbon (IV) oxide and chlorophyll in photosynthesis.

vi. detect the presence of starch in a leaf as an evidence of photosynthesis.     

                                   

6. Transport

Transport is also one topic you can escape from jamb biology. Therefore, it should be among jamb biology Hot topics.

i.You should know the need for transport system in plant and animals
ii. Also know the materials for transportation. (Excretory products, gases, manufactured food, digested food, nutrient, water and hormones)
c. Channels for transportation
i. Mammalian circulatory system (heart, arteries, veins, and capillaries)
ii Plant vascular system (phloem and xylem)
d. Media and processes of mechanism for transportation.

 

Respiration

Respiration is another hot topic you should embrace as questions are set from this topic almost every year. Therefore, it should be among Jamb Biology Hot topics

i. Learn the respiratory organs and surfaces of plant and animals
ii. Learn the mechanism of gaseous exchange in:
a. Plants
b. Mammals
iii.Understand all about Aerobic respiration
d. Understand all about Anaerobic respiration

8. Excretion

This is another hot topic you should study, questions are usually set from this topic also, therefore, it should be among Jamb Biology Hot Topics.

  • kidney,
  • stomata
  • Lenticel

ii. Also, understand the excretory mechanisms of the following.

  • Kidneys
  • lungs
  • skin

iii.Know the excretory products of plants

 

7. Reproduction

Reproduction is one topic you can escape from jamb biology. Therefore, it should be among jamb biology Hot topics.

i.Learn  Asexual reproduction and types
i. Fission as in Paramecium
ii. Budding as in yeast
iii. Natural vegetative propagation
iv. Artificial vegetative propagation.
b. Learn sexual reproduction in flowering plants
i. Floral parts and their functions

iii. products of sexual reproduction
c. Reproduction in mammals
i. structures and functions of the male and female reproductive organs
ii. Fertilization and development. (Fusion of gamates)
