Avoiding Common Errors
Avoiding Common Errors gives Maths teachers a readymade set of worksheets on the topics that students often get wrong. Working through these is a great way to sharpen things up – if they get caught out here, they won’t get caught in the exam. A great way to add detail and focus to Maths revision.
GCSE Science Questions
The GCSE Science Questions series gives you six packs of bite-sized units that are ideal for revision. Simply give students the unit on whichever topic they need help with for some extra reinforcement, explanation and practice.
Supporting Literacy across the Curriculum
For English revision, Supporting Literacy across the Curriculum offers almost a hundred self-contained tasks on reading and writing skills, grammar, punctuation and other areas that students often need to sharpen up before an exam.
These resources will keep adding value throughout the year too, since they can help integrate literacy teaching into other subjects. Opportunities for literacy teaching are everywhere, and this publication helps you and your colleagues to take them.
It’s quite common in Maths that students learn to answer a particular type of question without fully understanding it. This can lead them into trouble, since exam questions sometimes take maths topics out of the context where students normally see them – the infamous question about Hannah’s sweets from 2015 is a case in point.
In the run-up to exams, then, it might be a good idea to offer students some simple investigations that will help them look at familiar topics from unfamiliar angles. The Mathematical Investigations series gives you 120 to choose from at three difficulty levels.

Help your students make sure it’s their best self that turns up to sit the exam.
