Last minute effective revision before Singapore O levels Chinese Exam 2022

Singapore GCE O levels can get very tiring and difficult for young kids, who have to study for back to back exams while attending school and doing recreational activities. Then again, completing the syllabus alone is not sufficient. At the same time, they also have to find time for revision of each subject. While most kids tend to spend time practising subjects like Mathematics and Science, it is important to not neglect the mother tongue language as lack of practice in this subject can lower your overall grades! However, among all of these pressure, it is also vital to ensure that your kid is getting enough nutrition, rest and extra curricular activities to stay fit both mentally and physically, in order to be able to sit for the exam on the actual day! So how do you ensure that, among all that, your child’s revision for O levels Chinese exam is effective and worth the time spent?
Let’s take a look at a few ways to do so:

O Levels Chinese Exam Tip #1: Breaking down the topics


To begin with, it is easier to recall information when you study the syllabus in sections and step by step, rather than trying to cram everything into one sitting. Breaking down complex issues can help you grasp them better and internalize multiple notions more easily. Crossing out after finishing each topic from the list, has also proved to be beneficial and in fact, motivating in the case of most students. For example, one way to do so is by breaking down the revision by each paper- start by revising for paper 1 and so on followed by crossing it out before moving on to the next.


O Levels Chinese Exam Tip #2: Setting a target

It is important to set a target so that you know how much time you should dedicate to your mother tongue subject in order to be ready before the exam. For example, students may want to practise 1 essay and 1 letter each day. Having a target motivates and constantly pushes the student to study and allocate specific time of the day towards the subject.

O Levels Chinese Exam Tip #3: Timing your work

Even the most prepared and knowledgeable students struggle to complete their exams on time. Hence, once they have completed the syllabus, they may should time their practises and revisions of each topic. This way they do not lose valuable time from the last days of revision and gets a real feel of the exam day where they have to finish the questions in an allocated time. For example, practising to write 1 essay in 35 to 40 minutes.

O Levels Chinese Exam Tip #4: Revising past exam papers

Completing past exam O Levels Chinese exam papers can give an idea of the structure and type of questions that may appear on the exam day. While it is really good to finish as many papers for better practice, students who are revising at the last minute could focus more on the recent years of exams. Over the time, structure and syllabus changes and therefore recent year papers tend to be more similar to what the exam paper may look like. So one smart way to revise is to practise those and mark them for an even better judgement of the exam preparation!
