I wouldn' t say

that the CXC math paper 2 is 'that bad'. What I would say is that you cannot guess your way through it. Very importantly, you have to show your 'working' (problem-solving steps) clearly. It is not enough just to write down the correct answer. You have to show how you got your answer.

What some people don't realise is that it is possible to get a math answer wrong and still get marks for the question. This can happen if you show that your 'working'(problem-solving process) is correct and you know what you are doing. If you do that, you can make the wrong calculations, give the wrong answer and still get marks. Why? Because you have shown that you know what process to follow to solve the problem and you get marks for that.

So getting the 'right answer' isn't the whole story.

Re: Maths

Hi...please don't give up on trying. If you practice hard enough, have faith in God and claim in your mind that you will and must achieve a mark higher than a 5 then it will work out. But please, don't ever give up and keep on trying till you reach your goal.
