STEP Preparation Course

This one-day course is designed to help students prepare for their STEP II/III exams. These exams are designed to test applicants’ problem solving skills. As such, there are no set formulas students can use to answer questions. Instead, our tutor will get students thinking mathematically and outside the box. They will teach the class how to approach and answer STEP questions and provide techniques students can use if they get stuck. This course will give students the skills they need to practice confidently at home.
 
 
Please note: students attending the course are expected to have a thorough subject knowledge of the areas described in the course structure. Each session will focus on approaching and solving a variety of STEP problems in each area, as opposed to revising subject knowledge.
