**E Maths / A Maths: Maximum time per question**

Paper 1: 2 hours (120 min) — 80 marks

Max. Time taken per mark:** 1.5 min per mark**

Paper 2: 2 hours 30 minutes (150 min) — 100 marks

Max. Time taken per mark:** 1.5 min per mark**

In O Levels Maths, **speed and accuracy** is very important indeed!

Reblogged this on Singapore Maths Tuition and commented:

Just to reblog an old post on how much time to take per mark per question for ‘O’ level or IP Math. The above guideline applies for both E Math and A Math, Paper 1 and Paper 2.

The basic guideline is 1.5 min per mark.

So for a 2 mark question, the time taken should be 1.5×2=3 min.

For a 5 mark question, the time taken should be 1.5×5=7.5min.

This is the slowest speed allowed in order to finish the entire paper (there is no time to check). Hence, if one wishes to have some time for checking, it is recommended to do questions at a faster speed of around 1.2 or 1.3 min per mark.
