June 21 is the big day. You have known the date of the second maturity test, mathematics, for some time. Now all that remains is to give the maximum and put together everything you need to effectively pass this test.
How to organize the last days before the second maturity test
Ok, it’s mathematical output, it’s useless to keep saying that you would have preferred physics. Don’t complain, now that the time has come to prepare for maturity, mathematics is your enemy. Face it. There is no other way.
To prepare for the second maturity test, a year was needed, indeed a whole course of studies. Now you will have to put the five-year pieces of your student life back together. You will need to organize the program to have clear priorities.
This is the moment when you can’t afford to have doubts about the essential aspects:
- Equations and inequalities
- Analytic geometry
Structure each topic so you always have the formulas at hand. But don’t underestimate the importance of demonstrations. Hoping to memorize such a large program without having understood it thoroughly is insane. If you succeed, know that you are wasting a million dollar talent. But it is already exploited by supercomputers, so competition is difficult.
Understanding is remembering, the philosophy professor also told you. And he wasn’t wrong.
Use an effective method to revise
Even though the year has been hard and you now feel the need to relax, don’t give up. Keep holding the blow and don’t cheat. Wake up early and make your hours of just sleep. Meanwhile organize the days that separate you from the exam for:
Stagger the program to review it all
Cut out time, a lot of time, to do the exercises
Do the exercises. Yet
Think of these days as athletic training. Focus only on what you have to do and don’t waste time thinking it’s impossible. If you are admitted, it is because you can face the 2018 maturity.
Ask for help, you will need it
When it comes to preparing for maturity, mathematics is one of the subjects that more than others needs support. Unless you have spent the year collecting astronomical votes or rounding up with the kids in the other courses with repetitions, the most natural thing will be to ask for help.
You can turn to some of your classmates or your teachers, but an external teacher might be able to explain something to you from another point of view, to finally understand it fully. Don’t be afraid to ask specific questions and ask for clarification before choosing your teacher. You are the employer, in your hands there is the entire recruiting process. Do it with full knowledge of the facts.
