Your responses (highlighted in different colours) for the following Q6 & Q7 have been organised in clusters. 
Do read through the suggestions to aid your revision for the end-of-year examination.

6. If you have a chance to do it again, how would you approach the preparation?
Ms Loh's inputs:
Clear presentation of working is important so that the marker can understand your train of thought.
I would revise the presentation more
Ms Loh's inputs:
Regular revision is necessary to acquire fluency - when writing the steps in a systematic manner.
Doing more practice papers will also help you to see how concepts/ skills/ applications can be asked in different ways.
It will also improve the speed of writing as you would require lesser time to recall and think if you are familiar with what you need to do. Timed-revision would help in this aspect.
In response to the last two responses (in this segment): More practice in topics/ skills that you are not strong at is necessary. Making your own notes will enable you to revisit the topic, and it serves as a revision to what's taught, too.
I would revise more on areas that I know I need to touch up my skills on.
I will read the notes, practise past year papers to know roughly what type of questions will come out.
I would practice more on inequalities and data handling as I am not good at it.
I would want to do a timed practice
I would like to do more papers to train my speed.
Do more questions
I would do more practices instead of just reading
I would do some test papers
I would look through the past year papers.
I would do more practices on Simple Inequalities. Other than that, I might try to make my own notes to refresh each topic.
By Focusing more on the constructions
Ms Loh's inputs:
You need to plan in advance - set aside time for revision. A timetable would be helpful. But sticking to do what you have plan is more important.
Do exercises
Do revision daily instead of last min revision.
Revise non-stop
I would have spent more time revising.
I would spend time to study
I would have invested more time and ask my teacher and parents more.
Spending more time going through assessment books and class practices.
I would have studied and revised properly instead of doing last minute preparation
Try to pay more attention and focus more and revise earlier.
I would learn more on the parts that I am not sure on.
Ms Loh's inputs:
It is important to have all the necessary materials/ instruments when you sit for the paper.
Working calculator. Long Ruler. Sharp Pencil. Eraser. Construction set (including a working compass). Pencil lead if you are using a mechanical pencil.
I would have brought along a new compass because my compass broke and so I couldn't do question 7.
Ms Loh's inputs:
Refer to the response to Q7.
I would read my questions first and do the graph first.
I would think carefully before answering.

7. If you have a chance to do it again, how would you manage the TEST paper when you receive it?
Ms Loh's inputs:
Cultivate good habits of reading the question carefully.
This could be done by circling or underlining the key words and information as you read the question.
e.g. "Factorise completely"; "form...equation"
Read the questions VERY carefully.
I would read the question more carefully.
I would check very carefully and do it better and properly.
I would be even more careful, especially with the working and reading the questions.
I would read it carefully
Ms Loh's inputs:
It is not about starting from the last question first. The last question might not be the easiest question.
Strategise - attempt the questions that you are confident and easy to do first.
The marks will give you a round indication the amount of time you should spend on the question, relative to others.
This could be done by scanning the questions and mark out the question numbers of the questions that you know. Attempt those questions first. In this way, you would get the chance to answer the long question (that sometimes could be easy) before spending time on the questions that need more effort.
I would try to recal previous questions similar to the question and link it to the exam question and try to be less careless
I would sort out the difficult and time confusing questions
I would scan and erase my answers before printing it out again.
I will start doing from the last question as it had the most marks and I will do the questions faster as well so I have sufficient time to complete the paper.
I would attempt the questions with more marks than the other with less marks.
Start with the last question and immediately skip the questions that I couldn't answer instead of trying
I would start from the back
start with question 8
I would focus more of my time on the line graph and geometrical construction
Ms Loh's inputs:
Good time management is important.
The amount of time spent on a question is related to how familiar you are with the topic. Hence, practice is necessary.
Plan your time - usually, the number of marks would give a rough indication on the amount of time to spend in the question.
Refer to the above segment for the suggestions.
I would try to pace myself better and look at the time more carefully. I ended panicking a little because I had thought that I had run out of time.
I would manage my time better because my main problem for my exam is the time constraints, which is why I made careless mistakes at the last part of the paper. I would give the question about 3min. If it hits the limit, then I'll quickly go to the next question.
Have better time management
Try to calmly do it and don't spend to much time on one question.
I would plan to manage my time because I couldn't finish question 2.
Time constraint. I would do the questions with more marks before attempting the simpler question.
I would manage my time more efficiently instead of spending too much time on certain questions
Ms Loh's inputs:
This has to do with the amount of effort and time you put into the preparation.
If you are confident and manage the time well, you will not panic when attempting the paper.
By not panicking that much
Ms Loh's inputs:
Yes, this would be helpful; but you have to ensure that you memorise the correct formula.
I would note down the formulas of the topics that I am not so sure.
Ms Loh's inputs:
This is not a useful response. You should have described what you did so that further inputs can be given to you.
I would do it the same way

End-of-Year Examination on 12 October 2016
