These are short GCSE papers aimed at grades 7+.
Each paper covers 6 out of 30 preselected grade 7-9 skills at random.
Across the 10 papers, each skill is tested twice.
There is also the same distribution of Number, Ratio and Proportion, Algebra, Geometry and Measures, Statistics and Probability as there is in the GCSE exams.
These are ideal leading up to the exam period once students have learnt all the skills and need to recap alot of skills in a short period of time.
The papers are designed to be short enough to be completed and marked by students within a lesson or as part of a weekly homework.
The front cover also provides space to encourage students to reflect on what they need to revise and key things they need to remember before their exams.
There are worked solutions to accompany every paper (with mark breakdown).
There is also a sheet included of which skills appear on which papers.

These papers test skills that appear on foundation tier papers, aimed at students working at/towards grade 5.
Each set of these papers test 10 skills at GCSE level.
Each set has 4 versions to choose from with increasing levels of difficulty:
4 Green > 4 Yellow > 4 Red > 2 Blue
For example,
A green paper simultaneous equations question has the same coefficient of y.
A blue paper simultaneous equations question is worded with a contextual answer.
This allows you to build up students confidence and improve their skills at a pace appropriate for your class.
There are worked solutions to accompany every paper.
There is also a spreadsheet included for you to record your overall class scores and also question by question scores.
