I know in the 2020 section like the old specification it is compulsory. I would really like to practise these non-calculator type of questions, since all my A-level and GCSE exams have been with a calculator, and I want to practise more than the few papers they give. Thankyou!

Never done this paper before but having a quick look over some questions I would suggest doing some UKMT math challenge papers. Non-calculator and somewhat similar style of question. The questions do seem a little more technical than UKMT papers so I don't think it would hurt to do some GCSE maths papers (perhaps only the questions worth 4 marks or less) as well as that seems to be around the same level of content. This would make sure you don't have gaps in your knowledge that could be exposed in the test. I think a combination of those and obviously NSAA past papers would be enough to feel pretty confident.



Below is a link to the spec so I would look through this as well and if you see anything you don't feel confident on go on physics and maths tutor and work through problems specifically related to the topic.

Hope this helps.

Check out the questions on the MAT - they will be a bit harder on average, but very similar types of questions and thinking.
