The below are all the **HIGHER TIER** questions collated by topic from:

- AQA – Sample Assessment Material and Practice set 1 and 2
- OCR – Sample Assessment Material and Practice set 1
- Pearson Edexcel – Sample Assessment Material, Specimen set 1 and Specimen set 2.
- WJEC Eduqas – Sample Assessment Material

Please note that these questions have been copied/retyped from the original sample/specimen assessment materials and whilst every effort has been made to ensure there are no errors, any that do appear are mine and not the exam boards (similarly any errors I have corrected from the originals are also my corrections and not theirs!).

The objective is to provide support to fellow teachers and to give you a flavour of how different topics “could” be examined. They **should not be used** to form a decision as to which board to use (as if they would .. but it needs to be said!). There is no guarantee that a topic will or won’t appear in the “live” papers from a specific exam board or that examination of a topic will be as shown in these questions.

Please also see my other notes about this resource **ON THIS POST **and also check out the questions by topic for the** FOUNDATION TIER PAPERS** !

** PS** – The only questions I have excluded , are a few of the questions in relation to scale drawings and bearings due to scaling the pictures.

RussellMarch 10, 2016 at 6:54 pmGreat resource!!

Is there a ZIP file with them all in to download them all at once? thank you so much quality resources to use

JustMathsMelMarch 12, 2016 at 9:28 pmI’m afraid I don’t as I may be updating them on a regular basis.

Hannah SmithsonMarch 15, 2016 at 8:20 pmOHMYDAYS I had my mock exams today and the questions were so hard. ( I am doing the new GCSE) and many of the questions that popped up are on this website! If only I found this website two days ago because I’m sure I failed them.

ShazaApril 20, 2016 at 5:19 pmHey have you managed to get the answers yet ? As it would be great if i can check my answers.

ShazaApril 20, 2016 at 5:20 pmIt would be great if i can check my answers,have you managed to get the answers yet ?

ShazaApril 20, 2016 at 5:29 pmNever mind you have put the soloutions up, thank you very much for creating this its extremely helpful.

LauraMay 2, 2016 at 5:47 pmThese look incredible! Do you have all of the papers in a zip file or do they need to be downloaded separately?

adminMay 2, 2016 at 6:37 pmI will make available as a zip file when the solutions are all done.

AnonymousMay 4, 2016 at 11:12 pmGreat thanks!

Coral ThomasMay 17, 2016 at 11:08 amHi Mel

I have noticed the Statistics Higher don’t have solutions (yet- maybe someone is working on them) but – I am happy to complete these.

How do I then share them?

ShazJune 19, 2016 at 12:46 pmOn circle theorem H Q5 you take 180 from 83. I don’t understand that can you please explain?

adminJune 19, 2016 at 11:22 pmSPQ = 83 ( 39+34) and so angle QRS has to be 180-83 = 97 (opposite angles in a cyclic quadrilateral add to 180)

AnonymousJuly 10, 2016 at 3:22 pmAnyone has the answers for the ratio and proportion questions?

JustMathsMelJuly 10, 2016 at 9:22 pmnot yet no … one of my jobs for the summer is to complete the solutions for the ones that are missing. Sorry!

Sally McMillanJuly 18, 2016 at 10:09 pmHi Mel

Is there a “Trigonometry 1” missing from the Higher page? There are two different versions of “Trigonometry 2” on this page which seems to be more the harder trig stuff (sine rule, cosine rule etc) but no “Trigonometry 1” with more basic stuff. Thanks for all your hard work on this, totally amazing resource which I am linking in to my SOW as we speak!

Laraine HakeSeptember 16, 2016 at 9:45 amStill finding these sample questions arranged by topic of great use. Thank you!

Is there any easy way on here of knowing whether individual questions would be on the calculator or non calculator paper, please?
