P5 Mock Examination Workshop
A mock paper? Why do I want to stress myself like that!
Hold on! A mock paper is not meant to stress you up. Instead, a mock paper should allow you to know how you are doing before the actual examination. With your strengths and areas of concerns identified, you can work on using the remaining time effectively and efficiently!
Hmm… but I have plenty of past-year papers at home!
You may be able to complete the practice with a timer beside you. However, blind practice without knowing the types of questions that you must know may not be the most helpful in your learning given the short runway left to the examination. Gulp.
Did we also mention how having a teacher to evaluate and go through your answers will ensure higher accuracy in marking compared to an answer key?
Is your child facing any of the following while attempting Paper 2?
Unaware of popular question types and the relevant techniques e.g. how to label a table-form comprehension question
Unaware of the requirements of the different components e.g. a structured approach to editing, synthesis etc.
Unable to explain the mistakes that he/she has made
Unsure of how to improve his/her current answers and way of attempting the paper
