TES Maths ROTW: A-Level assessments
TES Maths Resource of the Week
Resource title: A-Level maths assessments
Resource author: Oxford Secondary
What is it?
Quite simply, these are a complete set of high-quality assessments and mark schemes for almost all of the A-Level modules, including further maths.
They are not designed to be specific to any exam board, so you will need to look over the questions to ensure they are all suitable for your students, but the vast majority are. The questions are top quality, and just as important – they are new to the students.
How can it be used?
The obvious choice is to set these as homework for end of topic assessment. At our school, we build homework out of past exam questions, which is both time consuming and has the disadvantage that students will see the same questions again when they come to do exam practice papers.
That is not the case with these questions, which can be used separately to past papers. Furthermore, with topics such as functions and quadratic inequalities covered, this is also a very useful source for new GCSE content.
