Content

This event is designed to provide useful information for teachers as they support students who are looking at a maths or maths related degree. If you have students who will need this support then don’t miss out on the opportunity to receive insights, tips and updates, as well as connecting with colleagues who are doing the same.

Fiona Kitchen will outline the AMSP local and national support available for teachers and students, and how this can complement what is provided in-school. Richard Lissaman (University of Warwick) will go through some key hints and tips specifically related to University Admissions Tests and take us through a sample question.
