2013 GCE O-Level Additional Maths 4038 Paper 1 (Post Mortem)

Observations for 2013 GCE O-Level Additional Maths Paper 1:  Graph on linear law, partial fractions, binomial, nature of stationary points, decreasing function, coordinate geometry, exponential word problems, sum & product of roots, proving identity, factor formula, modulus, rate of change, hence qn on dy/dx & integration.

Based on what was tested in GCE O-Level A-Maths 4038 Paper 1, the following concepts are yet to be tested:

  • Trigonometry equations
  • Trigonometry graph
  • Indices
  • Matrices
  • Kinematics
  • Plane Geometry (very likely)
  • Gradient of tangent or normal
  • Logarithms
  • Factor remainder theorem
  • Relationship between curve and line
  • R-formula
  • Equation of circle
  • Area under curve

We look forward to 2013 GCE O-Level A-Maths 4038 Paper 2!
Do your best and check your work to achieve perfection!


Hi, I'm Ai Ling Ong. I enjoy coaching students who have challenges with understanding and scoring in 'O' Level A-Maths and E-Maths. I develop Math strategies, sometimes ridiculous ideas to help students in understanding abstract concepts the fast and memorable way. I write this blog to share with you the stuff I teach in my class, the common mistakes my students made, the 'way' to think, analyze... If you have found this blog post useful, please share it with your friends. I will really appreciate it! :)
