This video looks at GCSE maths rotations questions, and is aimed at around grade 3. The questions should be reasonably straightforward, although you’ll need to be fairly precise with your drawings. It’s always good to have a sharp pencil, and a ruler, and some tracing paper on hand 🙂

These types of questions appear in all the main GCSE exam boards – Edexcel, AQA, OCR and Educas – and are fairly common for non calculator papers.
- Try to find the ‘centre of enlargement’ either with tracing paper, or by drawing the lines of enlargement
- Take your time – these questions are usually 2/3 marks, and they can make a difference to your overall grade
- Don’t worry about adding ‘working’ lines or showing ‘jumps,’ – it shows the examiner your working
- Does it look right?
