How to Prepare For a Maths Exam

The most common question that I get from parents is “what is the best way to prepare for my children’s Maths exam?”. The Maths portion of the 11+, Maths syllabus can be quite tricky for parents and children alike. However, the exam questions in the Maths syllabus can also vary depending on what sort of exam your son or daughter is taking.

Typically speaking, there are three exam types: general, mathematical and practical. In order to make the most out of your children’s Maths experience, it is important that you select a syllabus that will provide you with good quality preparation for your child’s exam. It is important that you select the syllabus that is suited to their age, whether they are beginning to secondary school or they are already in school. As a parent, you need to be prepared before you even begin to look for a good Maths curriculum.

It may be a good idea to consider taking a course that offers both practice and assessment work. This will help you get a general understanding of how to test your child’s abilities. A course that provides this sort of practice can prove to be invaluable if you are unsure of how to approach your own practice exam. Some tests can also give you the opportunity to test your child against more advanced Maths questions. In some exams, the examiner will be using different questions to assess your child’s knowledge and problem solving skills.

To make sure your child gets a good chance of passing their exam, make sure that the exam is set up correctly. Your child should not be expected to know all of the answers before the exam is started. The exam will give them feedback about their answers and what they must have done to answer each question. However, you should be able to give them good practice questions so that they do not feel rushed or overwhelmed.

Take your child to the local school where they are going to school. This will give them an idea of what the different exams will be like and can give them a chance to ask questions about how the exams will be conducted. Also, make sure that you visit the school before hand so that you can find out what sort of guidance they offer. and if your child has any extra guidance and tips for making the most out of their Maths test.

Another thing that you should make sure of is that the teacher is not being too pushy. It is easy to get carried away by the excitement of seeing your child excel in the exam and forget to ask as many questions as possible. Your child’s teacher will want to know what is going on in your child’s mind when they are answering questions so that you can better help them understand the question type. They will be concentrating very hard to provide the correct answer and will sometimes be unable to give you enough information.

Try to take the time to go to the school on a day when your child can do a lot of stretching and practise solving the problem in advance. This is a great opportunity to make sure that you have plenty of time to give them lots of practice without pressure. This will also give them the practice that they need to overcome their nerves before the exam.

Finally, make sure that you take your child out of class when it is time for the examination. Many teachers may be worried about a child losing concentration in a fast pace classroom and it can leave them confused. This can cause them to feel frustrated and overwhelmed.
