# Mathematics CXC Practice Test Questions

Why is it important to boost your scores in maths? Everything that is vital to life, everything that is in high demand today is directly related to a STEM subject (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics).

All the fields in science and finance that pays handsomely, have mathematics at their very foundation.

That is why at Pass My CXC we have a strong desire to see you pass with high marks, the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) Secondary Education Certificate examination in Mathematics.

We have a huge number of multiple choice math questions that are almost identical to question on CXC past papers.

On the General Proficiency test, you will receive 60 multiple choice questions, but at Pass My CXC the questions are broken down in manageable portions of 20 questions that you can conveniently answer.

In addition, you can choose to do question only from a particular syllabus section, to test your strength in certain areas of mathematics like geometry, algebra, statistics etc.

Happily, compared to other online services, we will provide an explanation to wrong answers and details on how to work out the problems.

Of course, what we provide is a great opportunity to practice test questions. Practice make perfect, so practice as much as you can. If you have questions, we are here to help!

The mathematics syllabus is arranged in 8 sections consisting of specific objectives and related content.

## Paper 1 - Multiple Choice

(a) It is in your best interest to try and gain as many marks as possible on this paper.
(b) Please remember to avoid random guessing.
(c) The correct answer may be determined by any of the following:
(1) : Working the problem to determine the answer.
(2) : Eliminating the distracters by testing each answer until the correct one is found.

## Paper 2

This paper contains essay-type questions and requires that you display competence at three cognitive levels. These are recall, method and reasoning.

Recall
This requires the presentation of basic facts and formulae and the working out of simple calculations.

Method
You are credited for the correct use of appropriate methods in solving a given problem. For example, the student who correctly applies the correct method of solving simultaneous equation will earn "method" marks.

Reasoning
This involves the correct selection of an appropriate method for complex problems or the correct interpretation of given information.

The above underscores the fact that in order to prepare effectively for examinations in mathematics, you have to place emphasis on studying information, using appropriate methods and practicing problems. Marks are earned both for correct answers and appropriate method applied correctly.
