Dropping Amaths. (O's)

Hello guys, i would really need some advice.
Currently, I seriously have the thought to drop Amaths at this time because my amaths result since Sec 3 has always been around 20-30 range. In my case, I simply couldn't understand what the question talking about. I was thinking as my current L1R4 as computated without Amaths during Prelim is 14( - 2pts from CCA) and I have no plans to enter any engineering course. Will this affect my path if I were enter POLY without amaths?

Note: I seriously fail amaths until buay tahan liao.

Re: Dropping Amaths. (O's)

In my opinion you shouldn't drop Amath
Dropping Combined Humans is understandable but unlike Humanities, Amath is a subject which you can mug and simply memorise without understanding and still score a distinction

Humanities is understandable seeing as it requires a certain set of skills not everyone possess
But trust me Amath can buck up last minute one
just chiong revision package or TYS, keep doing and memorising formulas
There's a pattern to the question for o levels one

You think they so creative come up with new questions meh
Constant practice is important for Amath

Emath is another story

Now only left 20+ days and my amaths sucks big time. I seriously think the time that i use to study amaths can be use to pull up on my subj like physics (C6) and Emaths (C5). Im already getting the grasp for emath and just more time is needed for practice. But then i would hardly even have time to buckup my amaths...

Well I can't comment on that but just asking for your school the history of people who score Cs in the end Os get what?
My sec school prelim was a killer but in the end quite a number scored As

Re: Dropping Amaths. (O's)

If you think you really cannot make it. like u said that there is only 20+ days left then don't force yourself.
.You should focus on the other subjects. You should pull up your physics and emaths to at least a B3. Emaths is more impt than A maths.
This is my suggestion you may want to consider.

Re: Dropping Amaths. (O's)

My amaths is weak too but i had decided to give up on a few chapter which i cant do, like circles and proof in plane geometry. I find it really hard to grasp these two chapters. Have u completed ur Amaths tys?

For that case of how many scoring C's Im not too sure. But i do know is my class have high percentage of A's for amaths only a few perharps ~5 scoring Cs, and Like me F9 in Prelims.

Re: Dropping Amaths. (O's)

Amaths is easy seriously. All you need to do is follow through the motions for questions, except for plane geometry, where you actually have to think. Rest of amath questions is just standard way of solving. Once you do enough of the same question, once you see it you know which method to use. Please go and consult your school's amath teacher, or perhaps friends who are scoring very well in amath. Don't drop! Amath is an easy A if you practice enough! Same for emath! JIAYOU.

Thanks of your suggestion and I was planning to use Physics and Emaths as I already getting it for both subj but just more time is needed. Well, I havent completed Amaths. That why i see my path of amaths already coming to a death end.

Oh and if you can find a tution centre/private tutor who is willing to take you in at such a short notice, try that if you can afford it. I don't think most tuition centres are taking in students now though, since it's only 3 weeks to Os.

Re: Dropping Amaths. (O's)

My school used peer tutoring to help students improve on Math
For me I kenna selected to be tutor but it still helps with my revision when explaining the concept and methods to my friends

My maths teacher already has spoken to me about this issue about dropping it since MYE, and i thought i could actually buck up before prelims. Who know even when i studied and covered more topics that what i actually did in MYE, i got even lower that MYE during prelims. She actually ask me to think about it again when i voice out to her today, so here im pondering over this issue. What im really worry about is whether it will affect my future path even though Im not going to take up a path on engineering.

me too. I am still doing Amaths tys. If there is still time, i think you should try to do 2010 and 2011 amaths O level paper or revise on differentiation and integration. All the best.

I know for engineering you die die need physics. And usually if physics is involved, your math has to be good too. I'm not 100% sure, but I believe H2 math is needed for engineering, and a requirement to take H2 math in JC is amath in secondary school, though some JCs provide crash course for those who did not take in secondary. Though, you'll have to catch up in JC with those who took amath, as they have a head start.

@Jensenlwt: If you want I can give you most of my Amath notes/worksheets etc since I don't really need them, apart from plane geometry lol.

I hate proof for plane geometry the most
Sibei pek chek when I was doing it
luckily 2011 not so much emphasis on it if not I confirm flip table

I appreciate it but I really doubt I have the time and energy to focus on amaths anymore that why I really want to drop. Coming home after ERP in school where my classmates accomplish the amaths paper and Im still 1/4 or 1/2 completed and always pausing here and there hardly even making progress when progressing is really such a key at this stage.

I don't like it either, but it's usually manageable. Hopefully this year also won't have so much on plane geom.
