Our top tips to excel in Science

Bringing everything back to the question

Particularly when starting out in NCEA, as well as at other levels, it can be tempting for students to rote learn a lot of content, especially since similar themes tend to be present across years. However, each paper will require students to place the content in slightly different contexts, so it’s important to spend the time on the “why”, not just the “what” aspects of a topic.

Understanding question phrasing

Science can have particular ways of phrasing questions that initially seem confusing to students new to the subject.  Past papers, including their exemplar answers, are a very valuable resource that students often don’t use, but they are the best possible indication of likely question phrasing for the exam.

Linking concepts

Many concepts in Science are intertwined, not just within papers, but also between standards and even subjects. Making these links can aid content retention and help reduce the amount of new concepts to learn.
