Mathematics B

Iframe Content

Summary

Maths B is probably the easiest subject of the lot and the lenient mark boundary helps even more to secure an A, if not A*. The student book covers every bit of the syllabus and is the best guide for the subject. The only relative tricky chapters are Vectors, Probability and Matrices/Transformations.

 

There are two papers to Maths B: P1 and P2. P1 has mostly small but yet tricky sums and the strict time limit makes it easier to make silly mistakes. While P2 has much bigger sums in ascending order of difficulty, timing is much easier to manage than the first paper.

 

Since mathematics is solely dependent on how much you practice, you need more materials. Regular practice ensures the A* almost all the time and this is where the past papers come in hand. Solving 5 years of past papers after finishing through the book is more than enough to give you a strong idea about the question types and difficulties. Overall, it is an easy subject to get an A in with a bit of effort.
