2012 A/L Chemistry paper also came out with mistakes

Mistakes in A/L exams, First it began with math. Math paper had a big mistake which lead many students to get fed up during exam.! After that physics part two question paper also came with mistakes. Radiation essay question, there were two correction and supervises . And also there are some news (sometimes it could be rumor) , In a popular school in Colombo they didn’t inform students to make correction in physics exam paper. That means , surely those students might have psychologically effected while doing that question. Now, today (2012.08.15) chemistry Tamil medium paper also had a minor mistake “which may lead student to go to wrong answer in 19th Question of new syllabus”. The velocity of light =  3 × 10⁸  ms-1 . But In Tamil medium chemistry paper it was like,

And there were some other mistakes also….!

Well well well, these mistakes won’t effect those students who study well (who’s eligible to take A grades), But students with lower grades.


 News from Daily mirror regarding chemistry paper 2012

Commotion over periodic table

Candidates who sat today’s Chemistry paper I had been agitated and distressed because they were not provided a copy of the periodic table with the question paper unlike in previous years.

Examinations Commissioner W. M. J. Pushpakumara commenting on the situation said the candidates were not given the periodic table because the professors who set the paper this year had instructed us not to do so.

However, teacher unions blamed the Examinations Department for not informing the candidates of this decision prior to the start of the examination.
According to teacher unions, the paper had contained three questions based on the periodic table. (Lakna Paranamanna)

Again I want to remind you that, “These mistakes won’t effect those students whom study well. But it will effect those who are weak in their studies. That means it will effect the majority”

Why to choose a teacher who has much experience?? Proof!!!

Most of students struggled to find a good teacher for their A/L studies. So once I created a video that “How to find a better teacher?”

In that video I recommended that the selecting teacher should have much experience. I write this post for two reasons. The reason number is “to prove that why the teacher should have experience”, and the reason number two is my personal reason, I.e This below compared biology paper is from one of the best teacher whom I saw in my A/L period and some one who has pretty lot more experience and whom produces superb results every year. So as I’m a good student of him, I’m happy to compare his paper. Well that’s my personal reason. Read More…

Can mobile phone help to your studies?

Mobile phone, specially smart phones are nowadays very popular among everyone. Now the question is can mobile phones help students for their studies…???
Well I have asked the same question and I found the answer.

As I know, the best way that mobile phone will help you in studies is, having your syllabus in your mobile phone. I.e for A/L science (bio & math) reading SYLLABUS (teachers instruction manual) most important. Because A/L exams are based on that notes only.
Hmmmm…! You may know that where you will be able to get your Teachers Instructional Manuals. (Download your school Syllabus). And also you may know that those Manual are in pdf format. So to read those books you need Pdf readers in mobile phones. Normally most of them know all those information I described above.

As others do, I also knew that I can read pdf files from pdf readers.
