The College has two banks of revision resources covering A-level content: our four “A-Star” MOOCs, available on edX, and the Metric collection, available on the Web.

The MOOCs, which have lots of explanations of concepts, are best for refreshing your knowledge. The Metric resources have lots of practice questions, and are best for consolidating your skills.

In both cases, you should “dip in” to key parts of the collections, rather than trying to do everything.

Recommendation: start with the MOOCs, and move to Metric if you need extra practice.

To get to the MOOCs, go to edx.org and search “A-level Maths”. Enrol to “audit” the course; that way, you won’t have to pay. The links below should then all work.
