Don't freak out, I don't know what to study, if you do practice tests base your study off of the answers you get wrong

Thank you so much! Btw how was the test? Are there any specific topics to focus on?

I havent done the test yet but I think for math you should really focus on algebra, linear and simultaneous equations, geometry, trigonometry, basic quadratics and Inequalities as the test is most likely going to consist of those topics

For English theres not really much u can prepare for apart from learning how to read paragraphs quickly and have a broad vocabulary. I'm doing the test on the 19th so just take the advice with a grain of salt coz I might be wrong lol

Thanks, but do you know how long the break is in between the exams? I am trying to replicate this at home to get better practice.
Thanks :)

Yeah, same kinda. I am excelling at English but struggling with math. I used to be more confident in math but that has changed. recently. I am  SOO stressed about the test in 3 weeks but I might get pushed back cause of covid. Did you do the JAC mock exam cause I also just got the results as you posted? Can't really help with advice from the tutor but yeah sorry. 😢 . Good luck tho. ;D ;D ;D

i also excel at english but math is hard, Im just really learning concepts because if you understand the question your doing better than 60% of the people there. Im guessing the test gets postponed to July 19th even if we get out of this by the date the restrictions wont allow a capacity of that size till at least july

I would really appreciate if someone could tell me my chances.
