How to overcome the problem of having careless mistakes in tests and exams?
It is one of the most frequently asked questions by my students and parents.
“My child knows everything but he/she makes too many careless in test/exam. How to avoid making so many careless mistakes”
“I could do the questions but made careless mistakes. Is there anyway to help me?”
My suggestions are:
1) Make sure your concept is correct
I always believe that when one’s conceptual understanding is solid, he/she will not make silly mistakes.
This is why I always spend quality time on explaining concepts every tuition.
2) Check your answer using alternative methods
During lesson time, I like to encourage student exploring alternative approach to solve the same question.
As long as the different approaches are all correct, the answers obtained should be same.
Make full use of one question, we can apply concepts from many chapters, by solving it using different approaches.
