MATH: read your teacher's notes and look through your worksheets. pla around with the calculator for the investigation. *if you dont know a 1 or 2 mark question, give it up and move on. 1 mark is eqivilent to 1.5 minutes, so plan well. always use guess and check if desperate:) note: never put' 1/8 = 123(wateva) coz you might not get any marks at all.
CHINESE: MY fav subject!!! Maybe you can remember some common good sentences to use in your composition. Look through the words in your textbook; getting those wrong would be terrible
SCIENCE: Write notes in class of important points so as to revise later on, try to use important concepts as answers. eg. start heat answer with "heat travels from a hotter place to a colder place so..." look at the MCQ closely. they might always trick you
SOCIAL STUDIES: read through notes, draw a concept map and timeline of the area tested, (read the exam topics!!!) remember important dates and understand important concepts. and listen carefully in class because i find that the teachers love to hint...
Last but not least, get into good relationships with your seniors! They may give you lots of help!
thanks for your tips
Sorry I don't mean to be rude. These are exam techniques and I am a little disappointed when I see GEP pupils (may be not all) think like dat.
Eg, Chinese is your favourite subject. Think you should spend time reading the classics, history, etc. GEPs are expected to create good sentences and not memorising sentences. Not too difficult if you read widely.
Good relationship with Seniors: do it with hearts and good intention. I find many Singaporean students like to borrow/take seniors projects/reports then kopi kopi... becoz they wanna save time. This is happening worldwide even at Unis level. I gave immediate failure when I see students kopi, esp. in front of me. This is not the way to learn.
GEP are expected to be creative... remember.
