Run from the start of the Easter holidays (for some schools anyway!) Monday 10th April, to the final GCSE exam on Tuesday 13th June.
All the questions require a calculator.
Answers included.

Updated 04.04.17 - 'hypotenuse' missing from one of the trig questions

NOTE: The font on the powerpoint headers is ObelixPro which can be downloaded from
I've included a PDF version so it can be printed as intended :)

      No problem at all, I use so many free resources that others have made, I couldn't imagine charging for mine! :)
