The GCE O levels Math exam is one of the biggest milestones in a student’s life. This will determine what Junior Colleges or which Polytechnic you can go to.
Math Lobby understands this feeling of uncertainty and we would love to help. Here are some tips which our ex Math Lobby students used to achieve “A” grade for their O Level A Math and E Math.
1. Practice more than what a typical student does
Besides doing the mock exam papers, past year O level papers and 10 years series which your school or tuition centre gives you, do buy additional past years school exam papers (PYP).
These additional questions will give you exposure to different types of questions and help sharpen your critical thinking skills for Math problem solving.
2. Get your queries cleared as soon as possible
Research shows that by clearing your queries or things that you don't understand as soon as possible; either by asking your friends, google or your math tuition teacher; this enhances understanding and retention of knowledge.
3. Set a time table every day to have consistent practice
If you have problems juggling many topics or subjects to study, let Math Lobby give you a good tip to study consistently.
Designate a specific time eg. 3-5pm everyday or every other day to study and practice math. This forces you to sit down and practice math and confront topics which you need additional practice on.
One important point to note is getting into a study routine.
This type of study routine increases productivity as you are able to split your studies into bite sized chunks.
It is also important to take note of the duration of both the A Math and E Math papers in GCSE O levels so you are able to incorporate the timing of your study routine.
A Math paper 1 - 2 hour 15 mins
A Math paper 2 - 2 hour 15 mins
E Math paper 1 - 2 hour
E Math Paper 1 - 2 hr 30 mins
4. Have a study group or study buddy to keep each other in track
You can keep each other motivated, exchange study tips and solve problems together. This can give a greater sense of accountability towards everyone’s goals and would want to improve the grades together.
5. Lastly, keep a positive attitude.
Believe in yourself that you have the confidence to do well for the O Level Math exam is one of the key successes. Not fearing the exam questions but have the faith that what you have studied is going to come out. This positive attitude will carry you through the entire test paper and in those questions that are tough.
