Short writeup:

The 2018 CHIJ St Nicholas Girls' School E Math Paper 1 and 2 offers a unique take on the usual topics. Interestingly, commonly seen subjects like probability, cumulative frequency, and distance-time graph sketching are absent. Instead, the familiar questions are presented in fresh ways, giving students new perspectives on exam content.

However, the individual questions may not offer much in terms of deep insights. Many students might find the steps required to solve them straightforward and routine. This means that while the paper's structure may seem unusual, the overall difficulty is fair and manageable for most students.

Overall, this paper is highly recommended for students who have completed their syllabus and are beginning their O-level preparation for E Math. The questions are not overly difficult, but the paper's structure and some questions might seem unusual. I suggest using this paper strictly as a timed practice to simulate exam conditions. Cherry-picking questions from this paper would not be as effective.

For a more in-depth review and personalized guidance, consider booking a one-time paid consultation with me to go through this exam paper after I have marked it. This session will provide tailored feedback and strategies to help you excel in your O-level preparation.
