It is only with good calculation skills that students can pass the difficult ICAS mathematics exam with good marks.
Starting early would help but just going through school books won’t. ICAS Exam is an international level competitive exam where your child has to rise above the country level and it is possible only when he gets training from a seasoned mathematics professor. It isn’t a difficult exam to pass, if your child can use his fine skills of calculations and get the confidence of making correct calculations.
When you are preparing your child for ICAS mathematics exam, you can’t rely on group classes. It has to be individual coaching where the tutor focuses on your child and monitors his progress. A book is a silent teacher and a tutor is a speaking book. The tutor will arrange study material; prepare sample test papers and monitor weekly progress. He will identify child’s strengths and mark low points and find ways to improve child’s competitive skills.
