How to Get Good Marks in 6th Grade Math Exams

In order to get good grades within your math exam, you will need to be able to effectively demonstrate that you have the ability to make sense of a variety of math problems and can find an effective way to solve them. The examiners will need to see that you have the ability to write, interpret, and use expressions and equations, and can use these mathematical tools appropriately to arrive at the correct conclusions.

In essence, they want to see how your brain works. It's not enough to simply answer the question through memorization. Show your working out and how you arrived at the answers to stand a better chance of receiving top marks.

If you would like additional 6th grade math homework help outside of the classroom and want to improve your chances of higher marks in your upcoming math exams, you should be revising and doing so regularly. It cannot be stressed enough that the best way to learn math is through repetition. The more you practice solving math problems, the more likely you are to retain that information.

You should review what you've been taught in the classroom and use that to build effective study sessions that address your weaker areas. If you're not sure where your strengths and weakness lie, use our easy practice materials to help you spot topics and questions that you may have difficulty with.Reviewing your class notes each night will go a long way in helping you improve your understanding of math.

We understand that doing this and getting yourself into a good study habit is easier said than done, which is why we offer our content in short and informative video lessons that can be watched at home or on the go. Our content works with your schedule so whenever you have a spare hour or two, StudyPug is available to help you review any and all topics within the 6th grade math syllabus.

Furthermore, we'd greatly encourage you to use our platform to help you sit practice papers and mock exams. Doing so will help to build your confidence ahead of your actual tests and will further assist you in narrowing down your strengths and weaknesses. When sitting mock exams, you should work within the time constraints of each paper and have someone else mark your tests for you. Reviewing your performance and seeing improvements, will show you that revision actually works and will encourage you to stick with it!

Put simply, a well planned revision strategy that addresses your weaknesses and a handy revision aide like StudyPug can greatly improve your chances of getting better marks in your exams.

Outside of exam prep, we can also help you perform better in class. If there's something in your lesson that you couldn't make sense of, jump online and browse our content. We'll have video tutorials on the subject that can help clear up any confusion you have. Our 6th grade math videos manage to deliver the same content you'd expect to find in modern textbooks and will address questions most likely to appear on your 6th grade math tests.

Think of StudyPug as your very own online math 6 tutor, available whenever you need us, and at the fraction of the cost of a personal tutor.
