Practice Questions and Solutions

Multiple Choice Questions can be found HERE

General questions

The following table contains hyper-links take you to pages of over 300 GCSE standard questions.

Each question has a link for you to click to see the solution - and (I think!) useful comments on how the marks are allocated by the examination board.

I suggest that you try each question in turn and then look at the mark scheme - that way you will know the sort of emphasis examiners put on keywords etc. for later questions you tackle.

I am in the process of adding more questions.

It takes a long time to put them in a suitable format for online use

- so do check back from time to time

- there will be new ones...
