Here is my latest video which is giving my top tips and advice for A Level Maths and Further Maths students who are looking to do one or more of the Sixth Term Extension Papers (or STEP).

These exams are ones that really get people worried – don’t get me wrong, they are tough exams – but they’re not impossible. You just have to prepare well and not get overly nervous about them. Easier said than done I suppose. Well, as a private maths tutor over the last several years I’ve tutored many people for these exams (mostly STEP I and STEP II but occasionally for STEP III) so I’ve come across a lot of things that work and a lot of things that don’t work when preparing to take the exams.

This video will hopefully give you a nudge in the right direction when it comes to getting ready for the STEP exams. It’s a bit longer than I had originally planned but I think it was important for me to be quite thorough so have a bit of patience because there might be something that you can take away that really helps you – after all I want to see you succeed as much as anyone!

STEP tuition is a favourite of mine – I love tutoring for these exams because even now the exams are a good challenge for me and there’s always something new to learn. Some of the questions are just so imaginative and really test your knowledge and ability to think carefully through unfamiliar problems.

If you are preparing for the STEP exams then I wish you the best of luck. Please feel free to send me an email or to get in touch with me if you have any questions about the exam – I’ll be glad to help if I can.
