How Our P6 Math Programme Helps

Exam Technique Handout: At The Learning Lab, examples of common mistakes are highlighted in an Exam Technique Handout that we give to our students. This will help our students to learn to spot and analyse these mistakes in various questions.

Topical Mindmaps: Mindmaps which consolidate key formulae, important concepts and common questions will also be distributed for a solid overview of each topic.

Specific Topical Revision: These handouts will be given out weekly to expose students to past PSLE questions when they revise a particular topic.

Pre-PSLE Handouts: Two handouts before the Prelims and two handouts before the PSLE will be given to students to expose them to past Prelim and PSLE noteworthy questions. Our teachers will also time trial students to simulate real examination conditions. Common pitfalls will be analysed and useful exam techniques highlighted within the papers.
