Are you planning on starting the Alevel Maths course this year?
As anyone who’s done the Alevel Maths course will tell you, it’s pretty intense right from Day One.
If you can make sure that you’re fully up to speed on the aspects of GCSE Maths that the Alevel builds on, then you’re going to find the transition from GCSE to Alevel Maths much easier .
That’s where the “Flying Start to Alevel Maths” (FSALM) course can help you.
With this comprehensive course, you can bridge the gap between what you’ve actually covered in school and what you’re going to need for the Alevel.
There are three versions of this course: Selfpaced Silver, Guided Gold (this version) and Personal Platinum.
Take a look at the course collection page for an overview of all three.
What’s different about Guided Gold?
With Guided Gold you get:
 A 10week programme running from early June until midAugust, for those who are starting the Alevel course in September
 Ideal for anyone who finds it difficult to stay on track when studying independently
 24 lessons set per week from the online course – typically equating to about 34 hours’ study time
 A weekly LIVE recap where your questions will be answered
 Live sessions recorded and made available for catchup purposes
What’s in the course?
Written and delivered by a qualified teacher with well over 15 years’ experience of teaching Maths at GCSE and Alevel, the course is suitable for all exam boards.
It looks at just the relevant parts of the GCSE (including a few bits that you’ll have done in Science rather than Maths) that you’re going to need for the Alevel.
On all three versions you get:
 Over 10 hours of speciallyrecorded videos
 none of the drawbacks of live webinars
 work through at your own pace
 lots of opportunities to practise skills
 rewind and repeat as many times as you like
 Practice questions with full worked solutions and other supporting resources
 A free Facebook group where you can get help with anything you’re still struggling with
 A completion certificate when you finish the course
 A noquibble moneyback guarantee
 Links to recommended free sources of additional practice
 A subscription that doesn’t expire – so you can revisit the course at any time.
These are the topics covered:
How should I use the course?
In this version, the course is dripfed, so each lesson will be made available in the week when it’s set. Click on the Curriculum tab above (if you’re on mobile then it’s the middle one, with the little block icon) to see the course structure. Once you’re enrolled, if you click on one of the lessons – and it’s available – then you’ll be taken into that lesson.
(The drip feed is negotiable; if the majority of participants would prefer to have the full course available to them straight away then that can be arranged.)
The live sessions will be at 7.30pm on Monday nights, from 7th June until 16th August inclusive, and I’ll use these to recap on the previous week’s topics and answer any questions that have been submitted in relation to those lessons, and then to set work for the following week. Questions can be submitted – preferably by the Sunday evening – via the Facebook group or by email.
Recordings of the live sessions will be posted inside the course for catchup purposes, so don’t worry if you can’t make the live slot. All the live recordings will be left up until at least a month after the course ends, and you will continue to be able to access the rest of the course indefinitely.
In each lesson, work through the video, pausing when prompted to work out answers to the questions. In some cases there are accompanying handouts available for download.
After completing each video lesson, take a break from that topic for a day or two. After that, work through the relevant practice questions and then check your working against the model solutions. If you get stuck then try to only reveal a little of the solution at a time, and see if you can get a bit further on your own before revealing the next bit.
Try, if you can, to revisit each topic after a few days and then again after 34 weeks, in between studying other topics. You can do this by redoing the relevant worksheet, or by seeking out Higher GCSE questions on the same topic and doing those. This is called interleaving and really helps you to remember the content.
