Well I'm in 5th Year I am sitting National 5 Maths for the second year. Long story short I spend most of the year chatting up a girl and I barely listen to the Teacher at all. So now with a few weeks until the exam its looking bad. If you guys could help me in some way on how to somehow pass this thing tips,topics I should really know That might help scrape a low C? Anything that might help me salvage a pass. I know it is very stupid but Any help would be appreciated.
On a few papers, see what kind of questions you already know and that you will know you will get full marks on.
Learn the easish stuff like incisors , percentages , fractions ,angles.
If you struggle with straight lines Ect there will be a question of the but don't worry about these, always try them though.
Make sure you have enough time to checks answers.
Maths watch and Khan academy are good for revision videos .
I'm sitting Nat 5 Maths also at the moment. As Larissa said, all you can do is go over all your notes, power points and concentrate on the easier stuff to get the marks and then go back and attempt the harder stuff. It's easier to learn maths by doing to be honest.
Fair play if you got your hole though
Buy the books of practice papers so you have lots of questions to do. Leckie and Leckie has a 'grade C booster' for most subjects, and Hodder Gibson does 'how to pass' so these might help outline the course and what you need to know?
Yeah doing past papers and practice papers is the best thing because you will see a general trend of questions for example in all of the papers I have done in the non- calculator the first question is to do with fractions then the second one is usually with straight lines. This helps you to narrow down the key things to revise
Don't worry I was the same as you last year but you still have like a month left so you'll be fine! Last year I'm not even joking I cram revised the day before for like 12 hours and I got a B!! I didn't have time to do past papers- I just went through my textbook and looked at all the examples and made notes for each example about how to do it and I made sure I understood how to do it! Make sure you know all the basics like the others have said like fractions and surds and stuff and also make sure you know about graphs and like the sin, cos and tan stuff and parabolas and finding the equation of a line because that will most likely be in it and normally is worth a lot of marks - just learn it and make sure you know how to do it and you'll be fine!! Don't worry, you have quite a while yet! I actually was scared out of my mind and I thoght I was going to faint before(lol probably because I hadn't slept) and in the first paper I somehow missed out the last two pages and in the end I got a B!! Good luck!
