Top Exam Tips for GCSE Maths
Now let’s look at some exam hints and tips that will help maximise your marks in the exam!
The first tip is to show all of your working out in the exam. If you don’t then you will get a maximum of 1 mark, that’s if you get the correct answer. You will get credit for correct working out even if you don’t obtain the correct answer, so it really is worth it!
The second tip is to familiarise yourself with the formula sheet that appears at the start of the exam. Remembering formulas will make answering questions far less time consuming as you will be able to quickly recall formulas like the quadratic formula without having to look them up.
The third tip is for the calculator exam paper make sure that you remember to bring a calculator and a spare battery. You will also need to remember to bring a compass, a protractor, a ruler, a pencil and a rubber.
Tip number 4 is probably what most students fail to do, and that is to revise effectively. I can’t stress enough that plenty of revision is vital to exam success. Revising the night before an exam is not recommended, instead make sure you get plenty of rest the night before the exam so that you are refreshed and alert enough to do the exam.
The final tip is to make sure that you practice as many papers as possible, as this will give you an idea as to what exam questions will be like, and help prepare you for the exam.
