Im due to enrol on an access to higher education course in september. Ive been told to expect a maths and english assessment to see what level im at. English i dont mind, maths however... well ive started looking at bitesize to refresh my memory a bit as im dreadful with maths. Whats worse is ive not done any really in 10 years! What kind of questions should i expect? Thanks x

What kind of higher education? I imagine things like fractions, indices, trigonometry will be on there, it's doubtful they'll put anything higher than calculus and that's more specialist

Fractions - yes, probably, but it's unlikely that you will be tested on indices or trigonometry. The assessment is usually about the level of foundation tier GCSE, although there may be some variation between different colleges.

Mine at Worcester was very tough for me-included mean,mode,median and range,area,volume,loci and angles on lines. We had no paper for working out and only calculator on screen when allowed which was rare. I would honestly just give it your best go and not fret too much I scored around 48% after 13 years away from education and only holding a D at Gcse so got to do it along side my course.

It'll be on par with intermediate GCSE maths. I found the questions themselves fine BUT we had an hour to pass a percentage of questions and there must have been over 60 questions, so less than a minute for each question! I didn't have enough time to complete it all and failed and had to retake it, the second time it was the same questions so I just happened to answer them a bit quicker. So it's not just being able to answer them but also being quick with your answers. This was the case at my college anyway and a lot of people complained! I passed the second time.
I would use the bitesize website but also time how long it takes for you to answer and try to get quicker each time you try it.
