Meticulous attention to detail!

  • Triple checked for accuracy and question clarity
  • Specification mapping ensures all areas of the specification covered and AOs weighted
  • Likely question type frequency reflected across the 30 papers; this ensures for example common exam questions occur frequently across the sets
  • Level of difficulty modelled to ensure the same level of difficulty as the specimens, which themselves were statistically checked by Ofqual
  • Non-write-on versions include optional short work booklets for the occasional questions where writing directly onto the question is useful.

Designed for students and teachers!

  • Separate answer column for faster marking!
  • Extra detail in workings helps students identify their mistakes and learn effectively
  • Common alternative solutions enable students to match their solution to that provided

Excellent. Can’t fault them... Don’t hesitate to buy them. Students will definitely benefit

Concise, structured, clearly laid out and a fabulous array of varied questions covering all the topics in the Edexcel exam for the new grading systems (9-1)... The format and layout is exceptional and most of all the level of questions true to the actual exam...
