CONFERENCE AIMS

This A Level Mathematics in-school is designed to accelerate student revision, packed with conceptually grounded approaches to understanding and answering questions from all three papers. Key concepts are covered with top tips from examiners on areas such as where students go wrong, how to maximise your marks and effective revision strategies.
