What is STEP?

The STEP (Sixth Term Examination Paper) Mathematics is a well-established mathematics examination designed to test candidates on questions that are similar in style to undergraduate mathematics.

The STEP is used by some universities as the basis for conditional offers.

STEP is available to all and there are also a number of candidates who sit the STEP papers as a challenge. STEP papers are an invaluable source of interesting problems.

The support provided by the FMSP focuses on students developing deeper problem-solving skills based on the content they already know. Examples of materials used on the online STEP course can be found in the resources section - STEP and AEA resources.

Find out more about STEP on the Admissions Testing Service website.
