This one-day course supports teachers in understanding how best to assist their students with the transition to undergraduate study, and how to prepare them for the mathematical expectations of university admissions tests.

What are the mathematical expectations of universities for students starting their courses? Mathematical skills are important for many undergraduate degree schemes. This course will explain what indications of mathematical ability universities are looking for when they receive a UCAS application. It will also give up-to-date information about admissions tests. The number of entry exams required by universities has risen in the past few years. Some are compulsory, while some simply reduce entrance requirements. There are 9 admissions tests that have mathematical content and these are for a variety of subjects. This course will explain what support students will need in school and where else they can access support to ensure that they gain the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed.
