**Writing Exams Tips from IB Maths Tutors-:**

After preparation and after doing a comprehensive revision, Our **IB Maths tutors** suggest that you should be careful about following things while writing your exams

(i) You should read the whole question paper very calmly and first solve the questions which are more comfortable for you. Don’t waste much time on the difficult issues. Time-wasting will lead you to the shortage of time for the other questions, resulting in silly mistakes.

(ii) You should be careful with algebraic short-cuts. It’s better to avoid them. You should provide the right explanations/notes with your algebraic work. Not doing so may result in bad grades.

(iii) Diagrams and graphs are the main attractions of your answer So make them large, neat and clean. Label them properly.

(iv) You should avoid writing approximate answers. It is acceptable when it’s not possible to get an exact answer.

(v) Don’t skip a question just because you aren’t able to solve its first part. Sometimes the questions are designed such that you can answer the second part of it even though you are not able to explain the first part. So it’s better to read all the elements of a question carefully.

#### Help in Use of GDC by **IB Maths tutors**

(vi) You should be quick and correct with your GDC. Check it properly before you go into the exam hall (batteries). Sometimes it may show the wrong graph so always check whether the results shown by GDC are making sense or not. If you are solving Trigonometric problems, you must set it to the correct angle mode (The degree or the radians). While writing paper 2, don’t assume that you will have to use your calculator for every question. There may be some questions in paper 2 that we can solve without GDC.

(vi) Use of GDC is not allowed on paper one, so you need to be very careful with your manual calculations. There is no way to cross-check them.

(vii) You should take a deep sleep and have an excellent breakfast.
