We’re using the advancedhighermaths.co.uk site and it is excellent. This has been a real help while our wonderful school teachers fight their way through lockdown tech nightmare. Later on today my younger daughter will be using the free national 5 maths website. Thanks so much.

Jennifer – Parent

• Hello, I am writing to thank you for your wonderful website! I subscribed when I was studying for my National 5 exam (as an adult learner) and found it invaluable. I am delighted to have just discovered the huge amount of resources for younger learners too. My son who is in S2 will benefit from these, now and in future, as will my daughter when she moves up to S1 after summer. So just wanted to say thanks very much! Kind regards, Clare.

Clare

• Hey, Just wanted to say thank you so much for this amazing resource! Last year I was expecting to scrape a B in my N5 exam if I was lucky, and after discovering this website and working through it over the past year, my teacher said she’ll be surprised if I don’t get an A1!!! So once again, thank you so much!!!

Olivia

• Thanks for this fantastic website you have here. So well laid out, easy to follow and as a parent trying to help their child with studying. Only £20 for the Study Pack has been excellent value considering that many tutors charge £40 an hour. I will be continuing with this for Higher Maths and also for my younger child to ensure they are keeping up with the course. The worked solutions are so clear and easy to follow and I just cannot thank you enough. Wish there was something similar for the science subjects.

Claire

• I got an ‘A’ in my National 5 Maths Exam! I’m very pleased as I did it my first attempt. Your website content definitely helped clarify and consolidate my understanding of the subject.

Nigel

• Just had a look at the worked solutions for the 2018 N5 Math Past Paper – Calculator was absolutely fine, but some tricky questions in non-calculator part, particularly 19b. We found the non-calculator paper much harder than five previous past papers. Anyway hopefully she has achieved an ‘A’ Pass and we will definitely be using your excellent site for Higher Maths next term.

Graham

• E-mailing you guys know that you are doing a great job compiling all these excellent resources, it has been a great help to me and probably many many others.
