How to pass Wassce maths and English exams is a common question that most students ask. Recent West African Examinations Council’s result show that less than 15% of the candidates achieve five or more credits including Mathematics and English Language, which is the basic requirement for admission into universities. In fact, every year in West Africa most students have to retake their exams because they failed Mathematics or English in their first attempt. Here are some exam revision tips that will help you pass Wassce maths and English exams:
Start revising early.
Start at least 12 to 18 months before the exam.
Divide the revision material into small bitesize segments.
You will be able to concentrate and retain smaller amounts of material than larger chunks.
Join Revision Groups.
A problem shared is a problem halved the saying goes. You can bounce ideas off your group friends and you will also benefit when helping others. These days with Internet access, you can revise with friends from all over West Africa if you join an online revision forum.
Read a lot.
This is the only way you will be able to build up your vocabulary and improve your writing. Read classical authors like Wole Soyinka, newspapers, magazines and even instruction booklets.
Use past papers.
Practise answering past questions and compare your answers to the model answers.
Show your working.
Get into the habit of showing how you get to your answers. This applies not only to a subject like Maths but also English where you should summarise the key points you want to put into an essay before you write it.
Track your Progress.
When doing past papers, try and either mark them or get a friend to mark them instead. Write the marks down and compare them to what you get when you do the same paper later.
By doing all these I assure you success is yours.
