GCSE Maths Mini Exams & Test Questions

Welcome to the Metatutor mini exams. The idea behind these bite-sized maths test papers is that you can do them in exam conditions and get more practice without needing to sit down in a room on your own for an hour and a half! These are questions based on past GCSE mathematics papers, condensed into two pages. They each consist of 20 marks and you have 20 minutes to complete them. You should get a family member to sit you down in exam conditions and you should pretend that this is the real thing! And then give your answers to your maths tutor to mark. More exams may not sound particularly appealing but the truth is the only way to get better at exams is by doing more of them! You can choose between Higher GCSE and Foundation GCSE mini exams, as well as calculator and non-calculator.

The mini maths exams are designed with easier questions at the start and harder questions at the end, just like a normal GCSE paper. They also get progressively more difficult (ie. Foundation Calculator 12 is more difficult than Foundation Calculator 1). Most topics on the syllabus appear in these mini exams at some point. The frequency with which each topic appears is roughly similar to the frequency with which they appear in normal GCSE exams. So you should expect considerably more questions on algebra than on, for example, conversion graphs.

You can also search for a particular topic using the search bar below. For example, if you wanted to do an exam that contains a probability tree question, put it in the search bar and only mini exams which contain such a question will appear.

If you would like someone to work through some of these with you or give you exam tips, book a free maths tutoring taster session.

We also have a series of GCSE maths revision worksheets and answers for you to try.

If you would like to work through some GCSE past papers, you can access AQA past papers here and Edexcel past papers here. Plus, Maths Made Easy provide both AQA and Edexel papers to download with model solutions
