The Maths GCSE Diagnostic Tool is a skills based assessment program. The app successfully highlights your strengths and your areas to develop within the subject. This is a very useful and accurate tool to use prior to any test to help rank which revision topics are of the most importance.

The app is setup in such a way to guide you through a wide range of Mathematical topics. The diagnostic tool assesses generic skill based Mathematical knowledge; it therefore suitably matches the AQA, Edexcel or OCR schemes of learning. There are two tiers available within the app, a higher or as a foundation option, to allow you to target your desired tier of final paper.

INSTRUCTIONS:
After installation, you are presented with a login screen. You will need to create your own account following the on screen instructions. Keep your login details safe as all future results will be stored under your account. This incredibly powerful tool then helps you to start identifying areas you need to revise. By answering each of the online questions, the app highlights the objectives you have successfully completed and which ones you will need to work on. After some targeted revision, you can then return back to the app to see if you have improved. With each access, the questions are refreshed so you can assess yourself with a similar problem but with different numbers.

SUPPORT:
Before rating the app, please let me know of any suggestions you might have on how I might improve the app. Any topics you think I may have missed or you happen to perhaps find some glaring glitches, then please email me first at [email protected] The app has taken a considerable amount of my personal time to develop so please give it 5 stars to say "thank you".
