South West Teacher Network

Review of October 2021 A level Maths papers (Pure)


The South West Teacher Network is an AMSP-funded project allowing teachers of maths to meet, to collaborate and to share professional development. We meet regularly and the programme is a mixture of interactive discussion and speaker-led training events.


In this session we will work through and discuss some of the questions from the October 2021 A level exams.

Questions will be selected based on the examiner reports (or just for being interesting!) and we will consider the implications for teaching certain topics based on the reports.

There will be questions discussed from all four specifications, and I hope that you might find it useful to consider interesting questions from other boards.

Materials and Equipment

The meeting will be held via Zoom.  We will be emailing you with a link to the Zoom meeting in the week prior to the meeting and will send out a reminder on the day of the meeting.

We recommend that you have headphones and a microphone to allow interaction with the session leads and other participants.

You will need pen and paper for writing.

As part of our safeguarding procedures please note the following:

(i) It is important that you log in with the names you used when you registered for the network meeting otherwise you may not be allowed into the room. If you prefer to use a shortened/alternative name, then do let us know via email in advance of the session.

(ii) You must not pass on any of the registration or Zoom meeting details to anyone else.

(iii) Please sign up using a school email address rather than a personal email.

(iv) If multiple teachers are joining and intend to join the meeting together, we would be grateful if each teacher still registers individually.
