This video looks at translation maths by vectors questions, and is aimed at around grade 3 GCSE maths. 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, 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.
- The questions are usually written with ‘vectors;’ the number at the top is left / right, the number at the bottom is up / down
- 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?
