An activity to revise all the types of percentage questions that come up in GCSE (suitable for either tier). I wrote this because I was struggling to find exercises where all the different types of percentage questions were mixed up.
There are 9 question types identified, with non-calc and calculator methods for each (though reverse compound percentage and “find n” type questions are unlikely to come up on a non-calculator paper). Then there are 26 mixed questions, which can be given as either cards or a handout. Once the types and methods have been matched (these are in the same order on the sheets so it’s easy to skip this step if desired), the questions can be matched by type and then answered. The answer section confirms question types as well as answers.
More accomplished students might prefer to jump straight in and start working through the questions immediately, but those who have difficulty identifying what a question is asking for should find the matching process helpful.
A possible extension for early finishers would be to have them write additional questions of their own to challenge their peers.
It's good to leave some feedback.

Exactly the type of resource I wanted, but was expecting to have to make myself. Thank you so much for sharing.
Glad you like it!
Thank you for sharing this very useful resource. i will use it.
Thanks, glad you like it. Would like to know you you think it could be improved to earn that 5th star but unfortunately TES doesn't offer you the facility to respond to tell me!
A nice set of questions and card sort activity for teaching a whole host of percentage topics.
Thanks, glad you like it. I'd like to ask how you think it could be improved to earn that elusive fifth star but unfortunately TES doesn't offer you the facility to reply!
