Note from the ruler of Mathematics, Mr Johari:
  • Most important to stay calm and focus.
  • Attempt the easiest questions first and/or the easy ones with most marks.
  • Check and recheck but keep watch of time.
  • You should be able to score well as you have been given sufficient practice.
  • Complacency and over confidence may lead to carelessness and unnecessary marks being deducted.

All the best and I have great faith in all of you.
