KooBits Science: How To Make Lesser Mistakes In Exams

In science exams, graphs can often mislead students and cause them to lose precious marks.

As an example, try this common P5-6 science question on the topic “Water”:

The answer is (a). It’s easy for adults, but explaining these concepts to a child requires patience and a deep understanding of the syllabus.

This question tests your child on 2 concepts:

  1. The temperature of ice remains at 0℃ when it is melting.
  2. Interpreting information on a graph.

Most students also struggle because of 3 common misconceptions.

  • They choose 25 min because that is the whole duration displayed on the graph.
  • They choose 20 min and do not understand this is the duration required for the water to boil and not melt.
  • They choose 15 min because they mistook the slope of the graph to represent melting of ice.
