Content overview

2014 2021 New

Three types of questions:

Essential concepts

  • “Concept” questions are designed to test a student’s understanding of concepts and terminology.
  • “What is the formula for?” and “How do I use it?” are two questions a student should be able to answer confidently during revision.

Skills and practice

  • “Skill” questions are designed to test fundamental skills that every student should know. These questions are usually non-contextual. So, the focus stays on the skill that’s being asked for, rather than reading comprehension skills.

Application and
explanation

  • “Application” questions are designed to get students applying mathematical tools to real world problems and interpreting the results in context. Many of these questions will require more than one skill to answer, and may be cross-topic. Perfect for exam practice and preparation.
