The One Hour Revision – Edexcel GCSE Higher Maths Non Calculator Questions post has proven to be popular, so I thought I’d add a similar post dealing with AQA Past Papers – GCSE Higher Maths Non Calculator Questions. This specifically looks at the new specimen papers published June 2015.
As before you can download the AQA past paper here, work through each of the questions, and then compare your answers with the video solutions. Each video is around 20 – 30 minutes in length, so by stopping and starting, you should be able to achieve around an hour’s worth of focussed revision.
There might be small differences in calculation methods although your final answer should be the same. Remember that there are huge variations in the way students are taught and understand maths … although examiners are very skilled in ensuring that you gain credit for all your work. If you’re unsure about about how I’ve calculated, or something is a little confusing, please do add a comment below and I’ll be pleased to help.
If you require any further practice you can always search the site, or head straight towards GCSE practice questions. This post will give you a lot of graded topic based questions and should give you plenty of practice.
One of the useful ways to keep in touch is to subscribe to my YouTube channel, and there’s quite a number of videos on AQA past papers, to help with revision. It can be a little daunting to be taking these exams but, with plenty of practice and regular revision, you can do it!
