    Can anyone please advice the best way to go about sitting the Qts professional skills test (numeracy) on a paper version rather than the computer based test. Daughter is very nervous and maths is not her strong point. She feels much more confident to do a paper version of the test. She has mild photo sensitive epilepsy and dyscalculia so would struggle to pass the test. She does have a b at GCSE level and feels given the test in paper copy she would have a much better chance at passing. She has already taken the literacy test and passed first time.

    You'd have to contact the test center for that query, they do offer additional time (up to 50%) and the mental arithmetic part can be written out on the screen but I'm guessing you have to show evidence of disability etc for those tests. As she completed the literacy on the computer, I doubt they'd let you do a paper version.

    Has she tried the practice tests on the .gov website?
    There's quite a lot of resources online available for free. Kahn Academy offers free videos and mental arithmetic "missions"
    This website has a few paper practice tests (http://www.passtheqtsskillstests.co.uk/page8.htm) and doing a google search will bring up a few University-made mental arithmetic questions. There's also books if you're willing to spend money or numeracy ready.
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
