# Thread: Multiple choice- first or last?

1. ## Multiple choice- first or last?

So maths is in a few days and I wondering what u guys think or will do in the paper. Start with Question 11 and then do MC last since it’s easier to get marks in that section?
Or just do it in order so u can get the easy marks first and then work on the hard ones later?

I always do multi choice last in maths exams.

Get the MC out of the way then 11-16, probably the best way to do it for me

On the contrary the multiple choice isn't actually the easiest section even though its the first one.
I might start with question 11 and do the rest of the paper before mc.

i usually crank out the first 5/6 MC during the reading time

6. ## Re: Multiple choice- first or last?

I do the first few MC in my head during the last bit of reading time to get myself started and then go on to finish MC first.

7. ## Re: Multiple choice- first or last?

the rest of the 5 minutes I could get through the first 5-7 MC questions and when writiing time began, i would spend another 5minutes or so on the remaining MC questions. MC is not meant to take a long time and can be done very straight forward

8. ## Re: Multiple choice- first or last?

I do multiple choice first so I don't forget (or do them during reading). Sometimes the multiple choice has "hints" for the short answer or whatever so can be helpful.

9. ## Re: Multiple choice- first or last?

I always do it first - think about hard questions (16) first in reading time and then do the first easy ones (MC) in your head as well.

10. ## Re: Multiple choice- first or last?

For 3u/4u just did circle geo in my head... if I could solve it I go do that question first, e.g. if it's 13d I go start on 13a but if I couldn't solve it I just start with whatever looks the most fun!!

11. ## Re: Multiple choice- first or last?

When I did the 3u paper, I completed the last question first and then proceeded in normal order.

Worked pretty well as I was forced to not squander too much time on the easier questions and at the same time get a decent attempt at a harder question, without the time pressure that comes with leaving it last.

Only suggest this approach if you think the last question is doable though...

multiple choice always first - dunno how i would do if it wasn't genny tho
