Demoralized After Receiving Mid-year Results


Last week, I received a sms from a student "I felt demoralized even so when I kept doing the test papers my school teacher gave me, yet I didn't do well."

Have you felt like this before?

It's like why is my hard work not showing any improvements?

First of all, we need to understand Mathematics just like languages needs time to be built up, you can't rush through, not to mention last minute preparation. Consistency is the key to success.

Secondly, doing many papers don't guarantee good results. Some of you might be shocked. Aren't we always told that practice makes perfect?  Practicing is the first step, what follow is important too! I'm referring to reviewing your mistakes and recognizing your strength. Many students miss out the second step of reviewing. As a result, their essential concepts aren't strengthened and remain the same level as before. How would this help to improve?

Thirdly, all doubts must be clarified consistently. You can either arrange a time with your school teacher or tutor to ask all the burning questions you've on a topic or maybe the reason why your method can't get you the correct answer. Don't waste the opportunity of just bringing your questions with no preparation and expect your teacher to feed you with the solutions. This won't be useful for you.

I hope you find this post beneficial and if you're lost and demoralized due to your results, I would like to invite you to our annual June Intensive Revision BootCamp for A-Math & E-Math. Click here to find out more or call me at 9685 7675 to discuss.
