T2W7 Quiz

This week, we will be focused on exam review. Even though it may be a frustrating experience at first, it is vital for you to learn from your errors so that next time you will be better at facing the kinds of questions that you met in the half-yearly.

This is the way the professionals do it - for instance, in sport, the best teams will watch a slow-motion replay of their important matches so that they can identify their weaknesses and work out how to improve. The point is not to dwell on their problems but to develop and mature as a team. What are we good at? How did that question outsmart us? Do we understand the concepts well but just fall down on silly mistakes? How can we avoid this for next time? What areas do we need to drill down and practise on?

That will be the topic of next week's quiz: tough exam-style questions. Pay close attention to the kinds of questions you got wrong, and write a question that addresses the same topic. Though you have a 2-4 mark range, I am expecting most questions for next week's quiz to be worth 4. These are intended to be a real challenge. For this reason (and depending on the questions you submit), next week's quiz may have three questions instead of four.
