Tips For Answering SPM Paper Additional Mathematics

a) Read the instructions of the examination paper carefully

You must follow the instructions given in the question paper closely.

Answer more questions than is required will not earn any additional

marks. The time you used to answer these additional questions

should instead be used to cheek the answer you have obtained

b) Read all questions carefully

For the section that you are given choices of questions, you must read all the questions so that you are able to make a wise choice. Otherwise, time would be wasted when you decide to answer another question only after you find the question you attempted is difficult

c)Read and follow the instructions given in the question closely.

Before you answer you must read and follow closely the instructions given in the question. Otherwise you will end up losing marks you deserve. Some commonly found instruction are given as follows

Use a graph paper

( found in topics such as Linear Law, Linear programming and statistics)

Draw a graph using the given data From the graph, find the value of x

( found in topics such as Linear Programming and linear law)

Solving by accurate drawing is not accepted

( found in topic such as coordinate Geometry )

Without using a calculator

( found in topics such as Indices and Logarithms and Trigonometry )

Use the time wisely

Time is precious in the examination. You should use the time wisely. You are given a specific duration of time to answer a specific number of questions. You must know the maximum length of time you can allocate to a particular question. Once you have exceed the time allocated and you still cannot answer the question, you should proceed to another question and re-do this questions, marks will not be awarded for correct answer if working are not shown.
