Practice questions for the STEP maths exam
March 16, 2017
STEP stands for Sixth Term Examination Paper and is a maths exam designed to test candidates on questions that are similar in style to undergraduate mathematics.
STEP is used by the University of Cambridge as the basis for conditional offers. Other universities sometimes ask candidates to take STEP as part of their offer – in such cases, the university can advise on which papers to take. There are also a number of candidates who sit STEP papers as a challenge.
These booklets were created by Dr Stephen Siklos, the coodinator of STEP. They contain questions and answers, as well as extremely useful advice on how to tackle difficult maths problems.
