The National Assessment is knocking at students’ doors, so it is essential that students know the little tricks to get a high grade in the matriculation exam. And since the hardest subject is math, teachers come up with golden advice for eighth graders.
What do students have to do to get a 10 on the math exam
Students must treat each exam seriously and with great care. The test that gives the students the most trouble is the math test, but everything is solved calmly, as the math teacher, Florentina Pavăl, says in a set of recommendations made for Edupedu.ro.
Florentina Pavăl offers students the golden rules they must keep in mind when they have an important exam in their lives. Most of the students are pressed for time, but the teacher jumps in to help the teenagers.
“Put your fears aside, it’s an exam, not a natural disaster! Rest the day before, try to keep your emotions at bay, read the entire subject first and then focus on giving your best in the two hours!
Work on the topics in the order they appear on the exam papers, if you don’t know one leave it, work on the others and come back to it at the end, after you’ve solved the ones you know. Surely, the structure of the subjects is clear to you, you know that no justifications are required for the 12 problems, from the first two subjects, so follow the instructions and only circle the letter corresponding to the correct answer. Some of these problems require calculations, do these calculations on the draft!” , Florentina Pavăl advises the students.
It is also important for students to know the structure of the subjects very well in order to solve them in a timely manner.
“For the tests in the 3rd subject, justifications are requested, that’s why attention is needed in the drafting here. The first problem will be one solved using equations or systems of equations or one of divisibility. Pay attention to the conclusion at the end of the subsection, don’t forget to write “true” or “false” after you have justified! In this year’s curriculum, the lesson “Equation of the second degree” was introduced, so don’t forget to repeat the solving formulas!”, added the math teacher.

What should students do when they don’t know how to solve an exam subject?
Because of the emotions and the pressure of not disappointing their parents or getting into the high school they wanted, students can snap. Thus, future high school students can reach the impasse of not being able to solve a certain subject on the exam. Don’t panic, you will definitely succeed! The tip is to leave no topic unsolved!
“If you fail to rigorously justify your answer to any of the geometry problems in the II subject, turn to your intuition and/or geometric tools. Even if you do not find the correct answer, still circle one of the four possible, the probability of finding the correct one is 25%.
Pay attention to the conclusion at the end of the subsection, don’t forget to write “true” or “false” after you have justified! If you don’t fit solving a problem in the space required, write at the end of the test (it’s usually a blank sheet, or you can ask for one) specifying the topic, problem and subpoint.” , said the math teacher.
Parents have an essential role in the success of children and it is advisable not to burden children with your emotions, as Florentina Pavăl also says.
“Finally, an idea for parents; I know you have emotions because I also had some 16 years ago, they are absolutely normal, but try not to pass them on to the child, he has to manage his own, don’t burden him with others!” forwarded this to the parents.
