Each set of these papers test 10 essential skills at GCSE level.
Each set has 4 versions to choose from with increasing levels of difficulty: 4 Green > 4 Yellow > 4 Red > 2 Blue
For example, on a higher set of papers:
A green paper "factorise and solve quadratics" question would be
x^2 + 7x + 12 = 0
A blue paper "factorise and solve quadratics" question would be
3x^2 - 3x = 8
This allows you to build up students confidence and improve their skills at a pace appropriate for your class.
