What makes our MAT Courses special?

Happy students! Testimonials:
Read what our students have said about our MAT preparation courses and resources
We always started each question or topic by addressing the basic things we needed to know. This really helped my understanding and I learnt a lot of new things that I had not previously known. Kauser M

The STEP questions in the MAT Extended course made the MAT seem less frightening and I learnt some new methods that are more advanced (e.g. Trig addition formulas etc.) that may help to make mat questions easier. April W

I found going through the functions questions very useful as I had not seen anything similar before. The teaching style works well because there is a lot of interaction between the staff and pupils. Emma B

Great teaching, good variety of questions. Very helpful teachers and assistants.
