Higher Prelim Revision

PRACTICE really does make perfect when it comes to revising Maths.
keep-calm-and-do-some-maths-revision

Working your way through past papers is the only way to make sure you have understood what you’ve been taught during the year.

Remember ‘RE VISION’ means ‘SEE AGAIN’. Redoing homework or past paper exercises again is a good idea, you can compare with your previous attempt. Having done it before does not necessarily mean knowing it!

Make sure that you USE all the resources available to you; past papers, textbook, class notes, homework resources, topic checklists, study guides, internet, TEACHER!, etc.

Good luck!
