 Why are the admissions tests so difficult?

Deeper level of thinking

STEP, MAT, PAT, ENGAA, NSAA and TMUA all provide a level of challenge beyond the requirements of A-level. The questions are very unpredictable and you have to apply concepts you know to very unfamiliar situations.

Lack of structure

STEP, MAT and PAT questions are unstructured and unscaffolded – it isn’t always obvious how to proceed with a question. For Maths, there is a large emphasis on proof, which is not covered much at A-level but forms the basis of a Maths degree.

Logic and proof

You need to use logical statements to construct a clear and concise argument to gain top marks in the STEP Maths paper and TMUA.

 What do we do at STEPMaths to make your life easier?

Affordable and Structured

STEPMaths offers affordable courses that provide a systematic, thorough and topic by topic introduction to STEP, MAT, PAT and ENGAA style questions.

As STEPMaths’ courses are held over multiple days, you will be immersed in thinking, discussing and presenting mathematically, which schools can’t always offer.

Time Saving Tips

Time-pressure is what makes many tests such as the BMAT and TSA so difficult.

You will learn many tricks and shortcuts to be able to see through problems and get to the heart of what the question is asking.

You will be able to ask questions and receive feedback from our extremely knowledgeable and experienced STEPMaths Tutors.

2 Brains are better than 1

The discussion and group work elements of STEPMaths courses provide educational advantages that tutoring alone cannot offer.
