Revised versions of the original material, intended to be used by students having finished one term of sixth form (year 12), will become available for self-study in January 2017. The "correspondence" aspect of the project is no longer available for this material.

The aim was to provide support for students currently in Years 12 and 13 who were considering applying to universities that require mathematics admissions examinations such as STEP. The course was intended for students who would not otherwise have received much help with STEP.

The project resources remain open to everyone. You are welcome to work through the assignments and to use the post-mortems. The forums that were on this site are now closed, but you can register to use the forums at
