Best maths course
Lots of practice

  1. Extremely useful maths course with everything you need. Stick to this and don’t waste time on other websites and the BBC stuff which is useless tbh.

  2. Really good course and lots of helpful information

  3. I found the exam papers in this pack the most useful aspect of the course as they show you exactly the type of questions that come up. The weekly lessons were helpful and good to know others are in the same position and also finding it tricky!

  4. I have found the process extremely overpriced and negatively corners a market for underprivileged people caught in a trap of rushing and panicking about a qualification they clearly struggled with at school. I bought the course for £324, which included the exam. Being on a deadline you have to fast track your results, waiting 10 days is not an option. Resitting was another £234. I had been working tirelessly on the course for 4 months prior to my first exam, I did the tutorials, which only went round in a loop and did not cover enough content for harder sections of the booklets.
    I found being left with a huge box of workbooks completely overwhelming, so I got a weekly tutor 2 months before my exam. I figured the average person needing to do this kind of test is likely to have had a bad experience as a child with maths, so taking it on without enough feedback or encouragement from a teacher sets you up to fail.
    The course does not stand alone as a sure-fire way to get the pass you need. It has cost me hundreds of pounds in childcare and extra tutoring. I crammed way too much, which left terrible gaps in my learning, and I put enormous pressure my myself and my children so that I could study (I am a single parent, working full time as well as studying.) Everything was on the line, I finished my job in order to do my pcge training, have loans lined up, the school I worked at where I am doing my training is fully expecting me to be there – friends and colleagues I’d have to let down all because of a maths qualification that I will never use as a drama teacher.
    I owe everything to my cousin who’s a maths teacher, who came to help me after my first failed attempt. He gave me days worth of core learning that wasn’t there before, only after that could I crack on with the booklets from the course. I went from 48% to 62%, and have him to thank.
    It really upsets me to know that others will not be so lucky to have an actual person to sit with them, you need a teacher to see how you are processing what you are learning. A Star does not offer this.
    Lastly, it is an absolute abomination that when you book your exam the price goes up because the deadlines are closer – it felt like a flight booking process in August. This is an unacceptable misuse of knowing people have no choice but to keep going to get the pass they need.
    Whilst I am glad and relieved to have a solid pass, I’m left with a sour taste that decades of badly taught maths is turned into big business, particularly in a time when upskilling is a non-negociable component to survival right now.

    • Hi Annamarie

      We are sorry to read that you have not had a good experience with the service but want to take some time to address the points you have raised as we don’t feel this review represents the experience of the vast majority of learners using our service.

      Our pricing is very transparent and the lowest in the sector and a lot lower than GCSE exams which are around £500 per exam for private candidates. Our courses include unlimited access to tutorials along with exam papers, revision notes, mark schemes, worksheets, revision cards and more to ensure learners have everything thy need to pass. The pass marks with course access are extremely high; however, we can not guarantee a pass and we have to stick to the standards set out by our stakeholders, namely the training providers, ensuring the equivalency tests are comparable to a GCSE qualification.

      Regarding 1-2-1 tuition, it sounds like you have had some exceptional help. We do pass learners onto tutors who can help with 1-2-1 lessons but most don’t require this input and having 1-2-1 lessons with a qualified teacher is often quite expensive so we don’t recommend it but do help those who request it and feel like they need the extra help. If you had needed this support from us, we absolutely would have helped you to find a suitable tutor.

      We are really pleased that you passed the exam with our service and want to reassure you that we will be supporting as many learners as we can going forward to achieve what you have achieved. We are investing into additional free resources onto our site and although we offer more free resources than any other provider we don’t want to be complacent and understand that not everyone can invest into course access. We have also expanded our tutorials, making them free to access for every resit learner, whilst also doubling the number of lessons available. We listen to all feedback provided and continue to improve the service ensuring we offer the best service available to learners.
