Math papers - how to study

Recommended Posts

Okay, this might sound like a really basic question, but how do you study for the math papers? My school hasn't told us anything about the tests except that they're in May, and I'd like to start preparing soon. Do you use practice exams? If so, where can you find practice exams?

Thanks a bunch :)

you can use these two websites to find past papers exams:

personally i prefer the first one.

Also, just a tip for studying - don't look at the mark schemes whilst you're working otherwise you'll just end up copying them! Not sure that the temptation is so large in Studies, but still. It does help to read and know mark schemes for past paper questions, but only after you've attempted the questions. :)

First of all, try to resolve all of the exercises that your teacher gives you. Then, try to memorize very important concepts (integration by substitution, etc). After that's done, just solve past exam papers and see if they're right with the markscheme.

Good luck!

i've started revising EVERY question in the book, and when i've done a chapter i try my knowledge on old exams concerning that area. This might not seem like a joy to do, but i took it from my dad who studied all of his math for swedens toughest economics course at uni and got full marks.

it is tough to do but it helps a long way because you pick up on the basics you might have missed and thus provides a deeper knowledge.
