MCQ is a very important and curcial part of the examinations. It is one of the part that the student should aim to score as much as possible.
Why? because there are options for your answers. So it is relatively easier to answer than the structured and essay type question.
But dun think thats it easy and hence you can dun study too much for it. In fact, because its easy, thats why you got to study more and make sure you get the most marks out of this section!!!

Ok end of How to study for exam lesson 7. Best of luck for the Exams again!!

How much should i write, especially for science questions? Another common questions from most of my student.

My answer..... look at the marks given and see how much time its worth spending on. Don't write an essay for a 2 marks question. Make sense? Answer smartly and save the time for more 'valuable questions'.

But theres an official answer to that. Go Google and search for the O/A level syllabus for the subjects and look for the glossary of terms used. They have a guide for how you should answer when the question is phrased in a certain way.

For example, look at the 2009 chemistry syllabus below.



Few more weeks to go!!! Final lap for the year!!!! GO GO GO. This is the end of How to study for exam lesson 6. All the Best!!

Sciences
When studying for science subjects, look out for key words in the concepts. These are the words that the marker will be looking out for in answers. For example, in the chapter on types of bonding for O level. For ionic bonding, some key words are transfer of electons, strong electrostatic attraction between + and - ions. You don't have to spend time memorizing the whole paragraph on ionic bonding. Just understand the concept and remember the key words.

Maths
Perfect practice makes perfect. Always practice. Unfortunately, there are no short cut to mastering maths. However, there are some things you can do to speed up your practice. What i usually advice my student is for the questions done durig school work/homework, mark down those questions that you find difficult or had problem doing. Then during revision for the final year paper or O/A level, you can zoom in right to those difficult question and see if you can solve them. As for those simple questions, just choose a few representative ones to make sure you still remember the formula and stuffs.

Hope this helps. Do drop a comment if you have other better studying technique. Different technique may be more suitable for different people. Share them with one another and learn more from each other.

That's the end of How to study for exam lesson 5. Bestest of luck for the Exams!!!!

How to study for exam lesson 4: Mind mapping

How to study for exam lesson 1
How to study for exam lesson 2
How to study for exam lesson 3

I believe many of you out there have heard of mind mapping and its common being taught in school. However, this is an under emphasized and under utilized learning technique among students in Singapore.

The reason being that its not being practiced in students daily work. As a result, students are not very proficient in it and hence find it time wasting and not very useful.

However, mind mapping is a very powerful tool if being used properly and efficiently. It can help you link up different chapters and topics of the subject together and allow the students to have a clearer view of the entire subject. This will enable kids to understand the subject better and remember what they have learnt better.

I refer to all of you an easy to read book which can help you all in mind mapping technique and some tricks to power memory. The book is by Adam Khoo titled "I am Gifted, So are You!". An easy and good book to read.

Ok thats the end of How to study for exam lesson 4. Stay tune to more.

How to study for exam lesson 3

How to study for exam lesson 3: Doing the exam paper is also an important aspect of studying. So lets see what's the strategy in that.

How to study for exam lesson 1
How to study for exam lesson 2

Usually the questions in exams are divided into few types.

1. simple and straight forward. Its just straight forward applicaiton of formula or knowledge. not much thinking involve. This includes definition questions as well

2. Slightly more difficult questions that require some thinking and applicaiton of knowledge

3. Super difficult question to differntiate out the A1 students.

And these 3 different levels of questions are spread out throughout the entire papers.
So when you are doing the exam, dun be intimedated or stuck at 1 difficult question.
Skip the question first and move on. do those that you know how to do first and after that go back to those difficult one.

Doing this will ensure that you will not miss out any level 1 and 2 questions which are easier to tackle and secure you marks first.

How to study for exam lesson 2: How should i study?

How to study for exam lesson 1

Most of the time students will not know whether to study the text books, guide book, notes or just practice the assesment book.

My tips for student is revise what your teacher uses to teach you. If your teachers use notes/powerpoint slides, uses them as the main guide to your revision. If you don't understand whats in those notes/powerpoint, then refer to your textbooks/guide book.

The reason is because usually your school teacher will have a very good idea of what's in the syllabus and what are the main things that will be tested. Hence, they will tend to emphasize those points in their notes and teaching aids. So for those who wants to do well in their test or exam, the best and efficient way is to pay attention in class to what your teacher is teaching you.

This will end my How to study for exam lesson 2. Please look at more tips on how to study for exam below.

How to study for exam lesson 1

For the first few installament of my post,I will be posting some useful tips on How to study for test or examination for students . Some of them from my own experiences, others from the feedback from my tuition students. (Note: may not be useful to everyone. Its important to fine whats suitable and comfortable for you).

How to study for test lesson 1: How to plan the study time table.
Well it is usually more effective to revise a few topics of different subject daily.

For example, you can plan 2 chapters of A math (5 hours), 2 chapters of chemistry (5 hours) and 1 chapter of humanities (2 hours) for a day. Usually i spend 12 hours or more for revision during the examination peroid. it will be good if you have more.

However please always get ample rest so that your brain can function optimally every new day. This is expecially important on the eve of your exam. Usually, a revision on a mixed of subject daily is good so that you will not get bored with 1 subject and lose interest in your revision.

So this is my first installment on How to study for exam lesson 1. Good luck people for your coming examination!!!

Physics Tuition

Welcome to my blog on Physics Tuition.

This is a first post and i would like to introduce myself.

I am a Singapore Tuition Teacher specialising in Physics tuition for secondary 1 - 4, JC 1 - 2.
I also do Math tuition (all maths from secondary 1 - 4, JC 1 - 2).

Throughout my academic life, i have gotten straight As for all maths and sciences subjects and I have graduated from The National University of Singapore (NUS) with a first class honors..
