### 17 top tips to maximise your marks at CE

**Dr. Essex’s top tips for boys who want to get maximum marks at CE!!****1. Have all your equipment ready**and organised early: calculator, drawing set, pencils etc. etc.**TAKE IT TO THE EXAM!****2. Read the question**carefully (RTQ)**3. Follow instructions**carefully**4. Speed and accuracy**– together – are the key**5. Show working**!!!! (for any question with more than 1 mark)**6. Sense check your answers.**Ask yourself, “Does that make sense?” Estimate the answer up front and then check your final answer against your estimate.**7. Revise most the topics you dislike**or feel less comfortable with**8. Revise and practise rounding**to significant figures and to decimal places**9. Round as instructed**in the question: to 3 s.f. , to the nearest litre, to the nearest penny etc.**10. Be precise**- E.g.
**don’t round in the middle of a calculation**... only ever round at the end. In the middle keep the numbers you need in ANS or the memory of your calculator. (The fractions button can also help here.) - E.g. in your constructions

**11.****SHOW WORKING**for every question which has more than 1 mark**12. Don’t get bogged down in any one question**. If you can’t get it circle it and come back to it. Remember the marks are spread evenly throughout the paper. If you do not get to the last three questions (say) you will only have a maximum score of about 75% even if you get all the other’s correct... which you are unlikely to do.**13. Always use a pair of compasses to construct a straight line**to an accurate length**14. Angles questions**: spot the isosceles or equilateral triangles (with equal sides), learn your exterior and interior angles of polygons, learn your quadrilaterals.**15. Bearings**– bearing is always from somewhere to somewhere else, learn how to construct a second north line**16. Don‘t panic**(Mr. Mannering ... ask your parents!)**17. Be as healthy as you can be.**Get enough sleep. Eat properly. Eat breakfast.**GOOD LUCK!**!!!!- E.g.

### CE Set 1, 2 and 3 Prep (Dr. Essex, Mr. Chapman's and Mr Millburn-Fryer's sets) 10-10-14

### HALF TERM PREP for Mr. Chapman and Dr. Essex's Sets

**Half term prep for Mr. Chapman and Dr. Essex's Sets**Due Monday 27 October

**1. Do the following two papers. Hand BOTH in on Monday 27 October.**The non-calc paper should be marked (use mark scheme attached).

Start to get familiar with how CE mark schemes work. Note carefully where there are marks for answers (A) and marks for specific working (M). Only that specific working gets working marks. A correct answer without working does not get the working marks. An answer rounded incorrectly does not get the working marks.

The calc paper should not be marked.

**2. In addition Dr. Essex's set should bring their folders in for me to look at on Monday 27 October.**### Dr. Essex's and Mr. Chapman/ Eagar's CE sets PREP 31-10-14

### Bearings - Constructing a new N line

1. See this short video which shows how to USE A SET SQUARE and a RULER to construct parallel lines e.g. a new N line.

2. This is an alternative way to constructing a new N line using a protractor and co-interior angles (as shown to Dr. Essex's and Mr. Chapman's sets wc 12 Jan).

(When completing accurate constructions not bearings I would still recommend the latter method. It is clearly a construction and I (personally) find it easier, quicker and more accurate in either situation.)
