    Hi, I have dyslexia and I'm currently studying AS maths and really struggling to get a good exam teqnique for approaching the questions. I always struggle to understand what it's asking me (I spend a lot of my time sitting there and not being able to answer the questions)

    I wondered if anyone had some good ideas of how to overcome this??

    Thanks 😊

    Not sure why you have dyslexia in the title of the thread, but 2* questions:

    Have you at least done the mixed exercises for each topic in your textbook?

    Have you watched video tutorials on ExamSolutions?

    Yes I've done that but the questions in the mock exam papers are worded so differently I can't do them.

    Sir, from what i know, if you truly understand the topic, the questions will be a breeze.
    You said you dont understand what its asking of you. You should do if you have grasped it, if not explore thaths you are stuck on, enjoy the maths, i enjoy the maths, Maths is an art.. Be like Feynman, Da Vinci

    Yes sir im doing the same, S1 is the harder, but not hard. Have you got the Edexcel Yellow/Red S1 textbook by Keith Pledger, I just read whatever topic I dont understand. I dont just read it but whilst reading I question it, I interact with the textbook because juat reading it is useless. Once ive questioned everything and understand it, do questions, be like Richard Feynman , a great problem solver
