Who will benefit from attending?

This course is for any teachers of A-Level Mathematics and Further Mathematics who wish to know more about university admissions tests for mathematics (and related subjects) and how they can best support students in preparing for these. 


This session will provide an overview of the different university admissions tests and which universities and courses use them in assessing students' applications.

Increased aptitude in problem-solving can also help raise students’ aspirations and confidence to apply for the competitive university courses which require an admissions test. We will look at some resources and strategies which can be used with ALL A-Level students to develop problem-solving skills. 

Finally we will provide teachers with signposts to sources of support and further professional development opportunities from the AMSP.
