O-level additional maths is designed for students hoping to study maths during their A-levels, and helps to develop key skills needed to succeed in mathematics. The A Maths exam is composed of two test papers, with no controlled assessment. A Maths tuition sessions are available for anyone who needs assistance with the subject. The A Maths tuition sessions will help students prepare for the exams and support them in learning more about the topic. A Maths tuition is available for anyone who wants it.

There are sixteen different topics that may be featured on the test. Notation is particularly important, so candidates should ensure they understand all the formulas and symbols they have learnt about. The exam papers do provide a formula sheet, but memorizing the formulas can increase the speed at which a candidate works, so is advisable for those who have problems with time management.

Differentiation and integration can be one of the hardest questions on the paper. When dealing with an integration question, the candidate must remember to simplify the integral down, and substitute if possible. Integrals can quickly become complicated, so it is important to work in a clear and orderly style. If you do not have enough space to do this, then you should request more paper from an examiner. A Maths often gives marks for showing your working and using the correct techniques, even if the given answer is wrong.

Candidates should attempt every question on the paper, although if they have difficulty they should leave it and move onto a different question. When doing practice papers, any unsolved questions can be brought to an A Maths tuition session to be discussed.

When solving polynomials, always try and factorize. While both the remainder and the factor theorems are useful, it is recommended that candidates are able to do long division with algebra. In trigonometry candidates must round to three decimal places at all times, unless informed otherwise.

Working with vectors in two directions can be difficult, and examiners recommend that candidates make sure to check whether the answer is positive or negative, as this is a common pitfall many fall into.

Logs are a struggle for many A Maths students, although this is a subject that is present in the A-level syllabus, and therefore needs to be understood. A Maths tuition is available for anyone having difficulty with logs, or any other questions. Candidates often forget to apply other areas of their knowledge to log equations, and lose marks by forgetting to use simultaneous equations.

When working in radians, it is important to work in one unit to minimize any mistakes from conversion. Candidates are reminded to read the question fully and not to use approximation unless the question says that it is necessary.

Sketching graphs can be difficult to do accurately, and writing on the co-ordinates of the highest and lowest points, as well as the x and y intercept. Candidates also often forget to extend the graph from 180 to -180 degrees, which can lose the candidates marks. It is also important that the candidate sketches out a CAST diagram when they are solving trigonometry equations. If you have any problems understanding graphs and how to sketch them accurately then please come to A Maths tuition so the problem can be resolved.

A Maths tuition is designed to help students who have problems with any of the syllabus. Please attend the A Maths tuition sessions if you have any problem with any of the topics on the question paper.
