    There are some very good resources for skills tests online. Most of my revision (and I spent ages revising grammar!) came from google searches. Youtube had some helpful resources as well.

    For PGCE? If you are going general then none. I don't have any A-Levels. Just wrapping up my psychology degree.

    I used these. And did the practice tests - but did those sparingly as each one is only really any good once. After that I remember answers.

    After doing the practice test this page http://www.teacherstalk.co.uk/resour...ctice-test.php has the tests as pdf's with explanations for the answers.

    There's a great online program called Numeracy Ready. It's £20 but it comes with 20 online practice papers and videos which go over the areas that can come up. Would definitely recommend it!

    The numeracy one I found ok. Once I knew the rules for finding fractions of fractions, reading tables, etc it was a comfortable test. Just remember in the mental arithmetic section all the big numbers are going to be times tables stuff. "24 of 36 pupils get A in a test, what percentage is this?" the two numbers are both divisible by 4 so you have 5 out of 8, so each point is worth 12.5% so the answer is 62.5%. If you know your multiplications it will be a breeze.
    Literacy I found tougher, especially grammar, a little comprehension, but if you are comfortable with that already then you are ahead of the curve.
