Past Exams


Finding past exams was not as easy as I thought, due to the copyright protection. Some of the Past FRQ can be used for exam preparations, check them out.

I have not come across freely available multiple choice questions, we'll work on those in class.

Review topics

Dear all,

For the next class, please review and prepare 2 topics from the first slide and 2 topics from the second slide which you would teach to the others in the class. The list is here: Review Topics.

Please also take a look at the Feynman Method here: Feynman Technique, it is an effective tool to learn and stabilise your learning (i.e. not forget after couple of days what you learned). Read the blog and we can discuss more in the class. I know that Mr. Rod is a great fan of the method, you can consult with him or attend his practice sessions to learn more.

Make good use of the extended weekend!
