# Facts About WAEC GCE Expo in Mathematics

I know that some people still find their way to see WAEC expo because of the sabotage working with WAEC. However, many people claiming to help you get WAEC life questions are deceiving you. They are only after your money.

Education is not a car race, or a do or die affair. From experience, you can pass WAEC by devoting your time to read your books and study past questions. Success in exam isn’t as hard as people make it look.

Looking for an “expo” is a distraction to lieu you away from adequate preparation for the exams.

## 6 Steps To Pass WAEC GCE Mathematics Without Stress

There are courses you can’t study if you don’t have credits in WAEC at one sitting: courses like Medicine and Surgery. The reason is that the number of students that applied for those courses is high. Therefore, one of the ways to reduce the number of applicants is to make WAEC or GCE requirements as one sitting.

### (1) Don’t panic

The fear of WAEC is one of the reasons why students fail the exam. You have to remain confident in yourself and ability to pass the exam. One of the things to do to boost your confidence level is when you start preparing for the exam early.

Early preparation helps you cover more relevant topics than late preparation. Late preparation can increase your stress level and eventually lead to poor performance.

(2) Source for past questions on various subjects you want to write

This will give you a hint of how WAEC questions are structured. This method helped me in chemistry back then. I understood how the practical, theory, and objective chemistry questions looked like.

And I was able to detect areas where WAEC like to focus much on through the trend of their past questions I have studied. Therefore, this made me focus on the most important areas and made my reading productive.

(3) Go through recommended textbooks

Go for recommended textbooks that explain better and can hasten your understanding. A textbook helped me for the practical aspect of chemistry back then.

I read the practical book and I was able to do very well in chemistry. Moreover, textbooks are needed for you to understand some questions you might be having difficulty to answer. Once you are able to understand it, it has become part of you.

I remembered that when I wrote my GCE back then my teachers told me how WAEC allot marks. For example, practical physics, chemistry, and biology take 40% of the total mark while the theory and objectives take the remaining 60%. Knowing this will help your preparation.

Moreover, some of your teachers are WAEC examiners; they are familiar with the dos and don’ts of WAEC. So take their words with seriousness and take note of any area they ask you to note. They are instruments that can guide you to success.

For example, in mathematics there are questions that belong to other countries, so don’t attempt questions that are not meant for you.

(6) Work hard

Success is for those who study hard and give their best. There is no shortcut to success than to work hard and be studious.
