Timeline of TMUA Preparation Courses offered throughout the year

Our courses aim to increase both your problem-solving ability and your familiarity with the TMUA short question format.

    What makes our TMUA Courses special?

    Maths is our specialism. So, when we help you prepare for an exam like the TMUA, we don’t focus solely on past TMUA questions, which are limited in number. Instead, our courses further aim to help you significantly advance your overall problem-solving skills, with the result that you will find the TMUA paper a breeze. That being said, our one-day TMUA Short Questions Course will also give you excellent preparation specific to the style of questions that you will see on your paper.

    Read what our students have said about our TMUA 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

    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.
