ITT – Folk has a saying: “Knowing the enemy knows us, hundreds of victories” to emphasize the importance of collecting information, and this also applies to Math exam preparation. To “beat” this subject, we need to know how structured Math exam paper is?
Math in English
Since previous years, Vietnam has started to apply international education programs such as IB, AP, A-level, IGCSE… to the curriculum in some schools, most of which are international and bilingual schools. When studying Math in English, students will develop the following skills:
- Determine expressions and values using mathematical procedures and rules.
- Justification for reasoning and solution.
- Use correct mathematical symbols, language, and conventions to convey results or solutions.

When it comes to the form of teaching, the standard program and Math international program does not have much difference. Both of them teach topics such as algebra, statistics, matrices, calculus, trigonometry, functions, and equations… However, while high school focuses on teaching basic knowledge, ensuring basic principles such as scientific, ideological, and pedagogical, Math in English develops problem-solving skills, self-study, and research, thereby increasing the perspective of international thinking and understanding globalization.
Because each international program has its own method of teaching and testing, the exam structure will be different. You must research the exam structure and the level of the program you are studying to understand how to do the test. Below is the structure of Math exam paper for some international programs:
