Here are a few tips to help you ace the exams!


  • Take comprehensive notes during classes so that you can refer to them for effective revision during exam time
  • Go through previous exam papers and understand the areas and principles tested in these papers
  • Draw up a revision timetable, giving yourself enough time to revise everyday – do not leave revision to the day before the exam
  • Identify a place where you are able to revise effectively. Don’t plan on revising in the lounge if you know that there will be distractions such as the television and traffic
  • Get enough rest before the exam, particularly the night before the exam
  • Make sure you have all the stationery (pen, pencil, protractor, compass, etc) that you will need for the particular exam


  • Take time to read the instructions properly
  • Always read each question thoroughly – don’t make any assumptions
  • Always check your answers
  • Roughly calculate the amount of time you need to allocate to each question, depending on the number of marks each question carries
  • Don’t rush through any questions, even if you think they are easy – they probably aren’t as easy as you think!
  • Make sure that you use the correct units in your answer (e.g. metres, kilometres, etc)
  • For Maths questions, always show your working – you might get the final answer wrong but get marks for correct workings
