Mathematics examinations

All year 9 to 12 students should be carefully preparing for exams to ensure errors from previous ones aren’t repeated. There are plenty of resources and help available, including a valuable study guide, subject handbooks and practice materials. Also, it would be wise to ensure all book-listed materials are being used, especially calculators.

 

If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s maths teacher or us.
