Support your students with higher-level problem solving and university admissions tests

Several more selective universities ask students to take an admissions test as a requirement of their offer, and increasingly universities are making reduced offers based on a strong performance in these examinations. It's therefore important that students have the opportunity to prepare for the admission tests required or encouraged by universities they have applied to.

This leaflet explains the AMSP support available to these students, as well as the professional development we offer to develop teacher's understanding of how to provide support.

Advanced Maths Options
