This is the short summary of the Prelim Paper Review I've done for

2020 CHIJ Secondary School A Math Paper 1 & 2

My 3 matrices:

Relevance: 7.5/10

Insightfulness: 7/10

Difficulty: 5/10

Overall: 6.5/10

Expectation: 80%

Key questions to consider:

Paper 1: 

Question 6: Trigonometric Identities & Equations

Paper 2:

Question 3: Polynomials, Partial Fractions, Definite Integral

Question 7: Quadratic Equations, Surds

Question 11: Linear Law, Logarithm

Short writeup:

The 2020 CHIJ Secondary School A Math paper is designed for average A Math students aiming to achieve an A1. Several questions in this paper stand out and require thoughtful consideration before execution, providing a good challenge without being overwhelming.

However, one potential weakness is the lack of application-based questions. For instance, R-formula questions typically include a context, like an engineering problem, but here, the R-formula question is straightforward and lacks real-world context.

Overall, this is a solid paper that I highly recommend for timed practice, especially for average students. Proficient and confident students might consider using this paper as a final review days before the actual O levels.

For a more detailed analysis 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 A Math preparation.
