Jennifer – Parent January 2021

I am e-mailing to let you know that your website has been a fantastic help!!! I used it regularly throughout the year and, after the 2019 AH Paper, I now hope to have achieved an ‘A’ pass. There is no way I would have done this without the help of your brilliant website.

Rebecca – AH Maths Student

Just want to thank you for the amazing study guide pack, it’s helping me immensely in revising for the exam!

F. Roberts – AH Maths Student

Hi I would like to thank you for the resource packs that you have here. Great for studying and without them I doubt I would pass AH. I can always count on this when I’m stuck on a question in a past paper or homework. Now I’m going to purchase the full AH Online Study Pack to prepare for the exam .. Thanks

Luke B – AH Maths Student

I’ve been using this AH Maths website regularly for hand written solutions to the MIA Text Book. The solutions for the Intersection of 3 Planes was really helpful since the questions can be quite tricky when the matrix is inconsistent. It’s also been a great for exam questions by topic. I’ve informed my class about this fantastic resource – Thank you.

Mr D – AH Maths Teacher

Great website, it has really helped me progress and advance within my work. This is for sure the best site I’ve come across. You’ve really helped me and I would strongly recommend this site.

John – AH Maths Student

I really love this website, I was thinking about dropping my AH maths until I found this website. This is a very cheap price for what you get

James – AH Maths Student

This site is absolutely brilliant! I’ve been struggling with Advanced Higher ever since the year started. I just found this site a week ago and the resources are plentiful and easy to follow. I’ll smash my exam for sure with the help of this website!

Luke M – AH Maths Student

I don’t know how much harder AH Maths is but with the assistance of your websites and my sons hard work over the past few years he has gained an ‘A’ in both his National 5 and Higher. So fingers crossed for the next level.

Mrs Donnelly – Parent

Just came across this amazing website and couldn’t believe my luck! With my AH Prelim coming up I asked my mum to pay £9.99 for the Online Study Pack. It’s brilliant! There are easy to understand worked solutions to literally hundreds of past paper questions. Text book worked solutions, theory guides – it’s all there! Even my tutor bought the Online Study Pack and says it’s by far the best AH Maths resource out there. I am feeling so much more confident having found this superb website!

Oliver – AH Maths Student

“I really like how the Online Study Pack breaks the course down into 18 sections so my son can address his weaknesses – each section has dedicated topic theory guides, text book solutions, past paper questions, marking schemes and worked solutions. Mark is a lot more confident now having accessed the guides several times – with most tutors charging £30 an hour the website is excellent value for money – only a one off £9.99!”

Mrs Dunlop – Parent

“I am delighted to have been accepted for University to study a degree in Maths starting September 2018. I really want to achieve an ‘A’ Pass in AH Maths this year to give me confidence when I start. This website is absolutely brilliant as everything is here to help me achieve my goal”

Sarah – AH Maths Student

“The text book work solutions are great for helping me start some of the harder questions – if it wasn’t for these I would be really struggling with the course.”

Mark – AH Maths Student

It’s great that over 90% of the material on this site is absolutely free for everyone to use! My students and I regularly access the Online Study Pack in class to compare our answers with the correct, easy to follow, laid out solutions to past and practice papers. The clear, easy to follow, worked solutions to recommended questions from the Math In Action text book are proving a huge help enabling students to better prepare for the exam. I’d highly recommend the Online Study Pack to all AH Maths students looking for a little extra help to ensure exam success.
