“I didn’t have enough time to finish the exam.”
This is one sentence we all dread to hear from our children after an exam. In the link below you would find a past Mental Mathematics Past Marathon document for 2016-2017. It’s a guide to how much time should be spent per question type.
The questions are similar to SEA type questions for Section 1 / Section 2 and the amount of time that should be spent on each question is given. Please bear in mind that the time given is for under competition conditions for students chosen via school in-house competitions. Do not expect that all children should be able to solve these questions in the time allotted per question.
If you are using this with your children, ensure they know the content and mental Mathematics methods and strategies before attempting to test.
All the best!
