10 Effective O-Level Maths Study Tips

by Nearpeer

1) Complete All Assignments

Completing all the assignments is important for Maths.  If you’re not doing well in your mid-terms, use the unit test to gauge how much you know and where you need improvement.

2) Focus on Understanding Concepts

Comprehension is more important than memorizing formulas (e.g. P=IV). Memorizing helps you with applying information quickly but comprehension helps make better grades in the long run because it allows you to apply concepts beyond just the course itself.

3) Make An Annotated Study Guide

It can be helpful to create an annotated study guide—a document that has everything that’s covered in class, along with any relevant formulae, made into a summary from which you can study from.

4) Figure Out When You Learn Best

Some people learn best by reading, while others learn better by listening and some don’t even need to be in the same room! If you do have your own learning method that works for you, then use it because if it isn’t broken, why fix it?

5) Get a Study Buddy

Studying with friends can help keep motivation levels high. Additionally, teaching someone something new shows how much of the topic has been learnt and helps deepen understanding since the teacher is forced to explain concepts in different ways using analogies and examples.

6) Set Up An Effective Learning Environment

An effective learning environment consists of lots of natural light, comfortable temperature and minimal distractions.

7) Manage Your Time

Keep track of your time so you know when to stop studying. If you must take breaks, don’t leave it until the next day; this is because you will forget most of what you learnt in that one sitting!

8) Make Classroom Notes Your Own

Classroom notes provide a framework for covering topics but can be made into something unique which suits your learning style with annotations and by adding diagrams/pictures where helpful. Use the Nearpeer app and take online classes. 

9) Assess Where You Can Improve

Before taking an exam, assess where you need improvement on—a few questions here and there is usually enough. Use these three or four questions to guide your revision (e.g. reading through notes or making a study guide) so that it is more focused and efficient.

10) Review, Review, Review!

Revisions can feel tedious but going over what was learnt in class the night before is the best way to retain information for exams. Additionally, past papers are extremely useful because they reflect what’s expected for an actual O-Level exam. They also give you an idea of how much time to spend on each question (e.g. 1 hour per question).
