EduFocal utilizes gamificiation to make learning fun; the first tool of its kind in the Caribbean. Below are tips that should make your experience on EduFocal much better!
Don’t use calculators: Students are not allowed to use calculators in their GSAT or CSEC (Paper 2 is the exception) exams. Using calculators or any other aid on EduFocal doesn’t help you to grow or improve. Sure, leveling up, winning prizes and being #1 on the leaderboard is fun, but at the end of the day the idea behind the service is to help you improve in a particular subject area or areas and to prepare you for your examinations as best as possible.
Diversification: Don’t stick to one subject, topic or teacher. The more subjects/topics that you do the more experience points you’ll earn. If you attempt to do the same questions repeatedly the amount of experience points you earn at the end of the test will decrease even if your score was high.
Get stuff wrong: You’re practicing for your exam, but EduFocal isn’t your exam. Don’t be afraid to try different topics ( even topics you’re not familiar with) and get questions wrong. Getting things wrong is the best way to learn.
Don’t guess your answers: Guess too many questions and you’ll lose experience points. Our system is pretty smart and can tell 🙂 And it’s getting smarter!
Finally, have fun!
