# How to practice effectively for maths?

Watch
#1
I understand all the concepts but when there’s an exam I fail it. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. How am I supposed to improve? I do practice everyday but it seem like that is not effective as I’m not improving. However, when I’m solving a few questions I’m able to do on my own, in exam mb they complex I can’t solve them or I make such silly mistakes my entire answer comes out wrong. But sometimes I understand I made a mistake and somehow I make that mistake again. I’m have to do maths my entire life bc I’m choosing computer science idk where I’m going with this.

Make flashcards on the question you do wrong.
then solve them again after a week

I think one of the main things is knowing what the questions asks you

I am doing a level maths too and it’s pretty hard but things like completing the square, the question will hint to you when u need to do that (x-p)-p^2 etc so try making Flashcards or memorising things like that

That makes sense, I do fail to understand the question sometimes 😅

yeah it works well for me! I was like you because I understand concepts quickly but when I practice I suck, so I made flashcards on all the questions I got wrong and then practiced again and again. Now I'm predicted A*s (not to brag but it works)

Oh no that’s a big deal, I hope I’m like you in the future then 🥲
