I will be uploading Common mistake made by P4 students in Science paper starting this week for my students for their own quick revision. This is beneficial for those who have no tuition or simply wish to watch/learn than to do it themselves later.
Problem 1 : Up to 80% of the marks lost are careless mistakes, 20-30% are due to incorrect answering techniques. Problem 2 : Every year, teachers are teaching the same thing from the same textbook, exams are testing the same stuff and the same questions. But because students are new every year, they make the same few mistakes a typical P3/P4 student would make. Solution : Expose students to these set of common mistakes made by a P3/P4 student. Understand why and where have the 30 marks gone (Assuming if the student score 70/100) ? Learn mistakes from other students from different schools in Singapore. Aim of these short clips : Not to teach Science but to let students be aware of the type of careless mistakes other students make. Learning outcome : Tackle the 30 marks deficit! If a student is aware of e.g 5 common mistakes a “B” student make, he/she would have a possible 10 marks advantage over a student who don`t know at all.
