Introduction

In this guide, we’ll provide a little more detail about what’s included in our skill-specific packs and explain how they can benefit your child.

 


 

Problem Solving

Each Problem Solving pack contains 100 questions. Maths questions in exams tend to follow specific patterns and contain repeated features. The problems in these packs are designed to expose your child to these patterns and features so that they are prepared for any type of problem solving question. Many of the questions they will face in the actual exam will be variations of the questions in these packs.
