Our top tips to excel in Science
Build a solid foundation
Take your time when learning the basics of science (e.g what makes an atom). While it might seem simple, learning more difficult content when students don’t have a firm grasp of the basics will hold them back. If they continue science in level 2 NCEA, all their content will be built upon what they learn in Lvl 1, so they need to make sure they build strong foundations of the basics.
Study using past exams
This is crucial in the first year of NCEA as students are still unfamiliar with the system and how it likes to test students. Using past paper questions will give students an understanding of how they will be tested, as well as how much time they require to answer questions. In order to best utilise the exam paper as an opportunity to test themselves, students should put themselves in exam conditions (e.g no phone, and no distractions for an hour), time themselves on each question, and not look at the marking schedule for help until after they have finished the exam.
Always give it your best shot
Science can be really difficult, and it can seem like it is impossible to learn everything. If students come across a question in an exam that they feel they don’t have the perfect or correct answer for, they should still try to write something. NCEA can give marks even for just writing definitions, or identifying the right equation they should use, even if the answer is wrong! Make the most of this generous marking!
