In addition to this, we have detailed below several websites that you can use to access further revision.
On Maths - an interactive online exam paper with a 'predicted' section.
Maths Genie - 'Predicted' papers for Paper 2.

Mathematics Exams Final Countdown
The mathematics department is introducing a 'final countdown' to exams that will start today and continue each week until the first maths exam on the 24th May.
This comprises of a set of questions focussing on a small number of topics along with the mark scheme and examiners report comments.
We will be emailing these out weekly and encouraging all Year 11 students to complete them at home. The attached mark scheme and report allows parents to be involved with the revision and gives you something focused to do with your child each week.
The first set of questions focus on the initial topics from the Crossover material and also introduces a couple of new topics (in a different coloured font). Each week different topics will be interspersed so that there is a wider range of topics included over the run up to the exams. Note that some questions have no examiner report as they are new questions and have not yet been used in a live exam.
We are not expecting that these be brought in weekly to be checked by class teachers, however if students/parents have any issues regarding any of the questions please send them to their maths teacher or along to BL8 Wednesday lunchtime.
