Junior Certificate Maths Tips and Tricks
Junior Certificate Maths can be an overwhelming exam to prepare for. You need to know so much information and many different maths skills that you need to practice. The following guide will help you narrow down your study topics to prepare better to ace your exams.
Here are some key tips and tricks to do well on your Junior Certificate maths exams.
1. Break it up – When you first sit down to study for your maths exams, breaking up the subject into individual topics is worthwhile. This helps you to assess the amount of time you have to allocate to each topic, which allows you to create a manageable study plan to tackle maths.
5. Refrain from scribbling mistakes – You get marks for showing your workings. So when you make a mistake, just put a line through it. Then, you can get some marks. Over the entire paper, these extra marks can add up and be the difference between an A and a B.
2. Learn your theorems– The various theorems you need to know for both Ordinary and Higher levels are one of the only topics you know for a fact that will be on the exam and, in most cases, how it will be asked. So make sure you know your theorems inside and out; it is an easy way to guarantee some marks.
6. Visualize complex questions – Leaving certificate mathematics is difficult. Questions are often complicated and confusing, and it could be clearer what the question is asking of you. This is when you need to create visual aids like sketches, diagrams, and drawings to help you make sense of complex questions. Just remember to do it on paper that you hand in, as it could be worth some marks.
3. Familiarize yourself with the log book – A log book is a very handy tool when you need to figure out the correct formula to use. Log books are also full of handy information and even some things you are expected to know already, which is helpful if you need a refresher during your exam.
7. Attempt every question – In leaving Certificate Mathematics, you should make a decent attempt at every question. Even if you only know the first step in answering the question, give it your best shot, as you will get some marks for starting correctly. And getting one or two marks from questions you would otherwise have obtained no marks for is an easy way to bump up your grades.
4. Show your workings – The marks in mathematics are awarded to students who use the correct mathematical procedures and techniques using the correct information for the questions. In other words, you get your points for answers correctly, not just for getting the answer right, so show your workings.
8. Manage your time – This tip may seem obvious, but many students go wrong in maths exams by mismanaging their time. Do not spend too much time answering one question, especially if it's not worth many marks. Rather, attempt it, and move on to another question.
