University Admissions Tests Teacher Conference (CANCELLED)London
UCL has suspended all face-to-face teaching in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, we are sorry to have to cancel this event.
Mathematics university admissions tests present a challenge to both teachers and students as it requires a higher level of mathematical experience than A Level examinations. The conference is for maths teachers who wish to gain clear information about the mathematical expectations of the admissions tests from the source. This is a unique opportunity to meet representatives for STEP, TMUA and MAT. The day consists of short sessions on each of these three mathematics admissions tests followed by a session with the corresponding test representative.
- To provide clear information about university expectations for mathematical understanding in the mathematics admissions tests
- To offer teachers the opportunity to liaise with representatives of STEP, TMUA and MAT
- To offer guidance on how teachers can support their students prepare for the admissions tests
