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 tool to use prior to any test to help rank which revision topics are of the most importance.

ABOUT THE APP:
The app is setup in such a way to guide you through a wide range of Mathematical topics, divided into 3 easy units to help you manage your revision: Unit 1 - Statistics and Number (calculator allowed), Unit 2 - Number and Algebra (calculator not allowed) and Unit 3 - Geometry and Algebra (calculator allowed). The diagnostic tool is applicable to both the linear and the modular system as it assesses generic skill based Mathematical knowledge; it therefore suitably matches the AQA, Edexcel or OCR schemes of learning. Each unit is provided as either 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 mrwslab@gmail.com. The app has taken a considerable amount of my personal time to develop so please give it 5 stars to say "thank you".
