Common Mistakes Students Make When Preparing For Their 11th Grade Math Paper

by Eva Spenser Innovation

Most students consider their mathematics paper a highly stressful one. No matter how strict their study sessions are- be it self-study or at coaching centres, they always end up making silly mistakes in their exam paper that costs them lots (and lots of marks).

Most math tutors helping students in Clacton on Sea region opine:-

“Math is a tricky subject. It requires students to be clear about the method they use to solve specific problems and an immense amount of practice day-in-day-out. 

In comparison to the other subjects where silly mistakes don’t cost more than a few marks, making one slight error can result in not getting the accurate answer for that equation, and that in most cases even leads to losing the entire marks for that problem.”

For these reasons, the aversion towards the subject makes most students clueless when they begin practicing. And that increases their risk of committing not just silly but even grave blunders during their crunch time.

Here’s an analysis of those common blunders which most students make in their mathematics paper.

  • Not Understanding The Method Properly Before Implementing It.

Most students make the mistake of not properly understanding the method of solving problems before implementing them. But little do they realise that every equation has its own solving method, and to use it properly and accurately, they need to comprehend it first.

The best way to polish up your problem-solving skills is to practice as many equations as possible. And if they do stumble upon any intricate equation; they should look clear their doubts with the help of an experienced tutor in your region.

  • Focussing On Previous Year’s Exam Questions When The Exam Is Knocking At Their Door.

It is imperative for students to practice with their previous year’s exam questions to firstly understand the format of the paper and secondly, to get a clear picture of what questions to expect. 

But unfortunately, most students practice with the previous year’s question papers only when their exams are knocking at their doors. Instead, what they should look to do is refer to those previous year’s papers right from the time they start their preparations, so that get maximum time to complete each of them thoroughly. 

  • Spending Too Much Time On A Single Problem:-

Another mistake students make when preparing for their mathematics exam is taking too much time on a single problem. 

Many have even made this blunder during their exam. They start with the tougher questions, take too much time to solve it and as a result are left with less time for the easier ones. 

To avoid this mistake, students should work with their trusted maths tutors, be it in Colchester or whatever suburb they reside and look to improve their time management skills. 

One effective way to do this is by taking up as many mock tests as they can. In addition, to that; you should also set a fixed time for each group and back yourself to finish it initially within that and as you move along, ahead of that set time.

  • Emphasising Only On Their School Text Questions:-

While being thorough with every mathematical equation in your school textbook sounds wonderful, they should also practice with other popular texts. Doing so introduces them to other variety of mathematical equations (each of which may require a different method of solving).

This makes them more adept in solving problems easily, boosts their inner confidence and prepares them for whatever comes in their exam paper. 

There you have it. Few common blunders that math students make when preparing for their math paper and how they can resolve it to score big during their crunch time. Look to avoid them and always take help from a notable tutor to prepare perfectly.
