FAQs

Q: I attended one of your courses earlier in the year. Is the course that's included here the same one?
A: Not at all, this is a brand new course, covering completely different questions and material, building on the previous course you attended. If you didn't attend the previous course, we're including the videos for it here so that you can catch up!

Q: I already have the online resources as part of the Platinum Online Bundle or 'Maximise Your Summer' Bundle, so I don't need these again.
A: Not to worry, send us a message at support@stepmaths.co.uk with the order number of your previous bundle and we'll send you a way to purchase the bundle at a further discount of £150.

  • Lead your own revision with our vault of exclusive online video resources Take charge of your own admissions test preparation. Cambridge are looking for self-starters and independent study is absolutely key to success. But only if you know you’re going in the right direction. Our 500+ in-depth videos explain the thought processes of expert problem solvers so you literally start thinking like one. 
  • Receive a highly personalised learning experience We’ll work with you to identify areas of weakness across the whole application – personal statement, admissions test, and interview (Gold and Diamond only) – so that you can accelerate your progress and turbo-charge your application. 
  • Empower yourself with our in-depth interview preparation (Gold and Diamond only) -  One of the most nerve-wracking parts of the entire admissions process (the remote interviews this year will only add to the nerves), the interview is often an area where many otherwise-excellent candidates fail to shine. Together, we'll make sure you're able to show your true potential at interview.

...The Details

EVERYTHING IN OUR:
ULTIMATE CTMUA BUNDLE
(TOTAL VALUE: £629)

🥈🥇💎 Over 500 exclusive online video solutions (including extra practice questions) - Available immediately

Students tell us that when they see a solution, they get it, but that they would have never come up with this solution on their own.

Our 500+ video solutions have been created by our handpicked team of expert tutors. They have been created to express every thought process, so that you can start to think just like an expert and approach problems in the same way. 

This video content and the extra practice questions we provide form the basis of the independent study that our students will do at home.

“The solutions are really expressive and help you get the fundamentals into your head. Using them, I ended up getting 7.2 in the CTMUA and Cambridge invited me to interview.”  –Vaibhav

🥈🥇💎 2x full days of CTMUA coaching in a group setting (on Zoom) - 10-11th October 2020 (CTMUA course 2 of 2)

Following up our popular summer course on the rapid-fire short maths questions found in both CTMUA papers, we present a similar course targeted at the unique proof- and logic-based questions in Paper 2 of the CTMUA. 

We know at this point in your preparation, you will probably have tackled the majority of the past papers, so this course will cover original questions that we have created especially. The style of question found in Paper 2 is unlike anything you will see at A-level and will require practice at logical reasoning, manipulating quantifiers, negations, and conditionals, and analysing proofs. These are also skills that are vital for a degree in Computer Science or Maths, so you may well be tested on them if you are invited to interview too.

Working with partners, you will learn by practice how to:
- Confidently check if a condition is necessary or sufficient
- Use straightforward rules to analyse statements with multiple quantifiers, negations, and conditionals
- Immediately spot the sources of common flaws in proofs, such as additional or missed solutions
- Deal with counterexamples, consequences, and assumptions, even in completely unfamiliar contexts
- Avoid common pitfalls, like functions on limited domains, or manipulations that only work if a quantity is positive

“There are some topics which are never covered at A-Level and are assumed to just be intuitive but often aren't, and this course allows you to see a more in-depth overview of how to tackle CTMUA-specific questions” –Archie

🥈🥇💎 Summer CTMUA course video catchup replay

Our live summer courses were more popular than ever, so we've put together a handy video version with all the content so you can:

A) Catch up if you missed our summer courses
B) Refresh the material closer to your test or interview if you attended them already

"The online course went through many different kinds of questions where the tutor clearly explained the method behind them." –Taher

"I learnt so much during the course and wanted to think independently about the problems at home too. The videos re-explain the content just as clearly as the tutors did live, so I really feel like I got everything out of the questions now." –Alexander

EXCLUSIVE BONUS:
(VALUE: £499)

Case Studies

Meet K. (now reading Computer Science at Cambridge)

“The application process for Computer Science entry to Cambridge changed a lot this year when the CTMUA was introduced, so I was looking for a course or tutor that would help me understand the new theory I needed for the test. I also knew that the Cambridge interview and at-interview test would be highly mathematical, so I believed I was in good hands at the Oxbridge Formula.

I was actually pretty much dreading the interview but the mock interview day awas really helpful in making me feel calm and collected on the day.

All the tutors are extremely friendly and also incredibly knowledgeable. Thank you so much for everything over the last year. After results came through, Cambridge have confirmed my place!"

Meet N.* (Computer Science at Cambridge)

“Computer Science is the most competitive course at Cambridge and I chose The Oxbridge Formula to help with with my application due to its focus on STEM subjects and the clear expertise of the tutors. 

I had been working through the videos, which really helped me know how I should be thinking about problems. Attending the group courses was amazing and the interactive experience allowed me to learn a lot from others. The 4 tutors on the course gave great explanations and step-by-step instructions for most topics for the CTMUA. I was fine with the material but needed more confidence for the CTMUA and the personal tutorial sessions I had with Adam were great for making me talk Overall, I would highly recommend working with The Oxbridge Formula. Thank you for everything!"

Testimonials

"I really liked how we began each topic by addressing the fundamentals, as it really simplified the process of answering such challenging questions. 

There was always help available when we were working individually, and the group work and whole class demonstrations really helped as you learnt new methods of problem solving."

–Kauser
"This course was incredible. The problems were challenging but rewarding. The presenters friendly as well as being clear in their explanations.
 
I enjoyed learning the best ways to tackle maths problems as well as learning with other students who are at a similar level in maths."

–Raza
"It was great to work with other mathematicians on high level maths problems and to also see different approaches to problems.
 
The tutors are all really helpful and approachable, which makes such a difference. Working on hard questions with people able to give hints and suggestions is really useful, as you know someone will be able to explain it if you don't understand it. The preparatory questions before tackling questions are also useful as they get you in the zone."

–Alex
"The friendly and knowledgeable staff provide elegant worked through solutions by various methods and very useful help on questions when necessary. They break down questions so that they are easier to tackle and provide starter questions to get the students looking for the right methods to tackle a problem.
 
I have learnt several mathematical techniques and have improved my understanding of mathematical concepts that I was already familiar with as well.

It has also been nice to meet and work with fellow mathematicians who will most likely be attending similar universities to me. This is particularly encouraging because you get the chance to meet people who are going to have to sit the same difficult exam as you."

–Aadil
"It was a great opportunity to start preparing in a friendly environment with the chance of asking for help whenever needed. The low student-teacher ratio meant that 1-1 help was often provided and this helped clarify many ideas."

–Tomas
"All the questions that I had were answered by the tutors. They all gave interesting tips (i.e. things to spot, methods to use) allowing me to work through questions quicker in the future.

- Ekaksh
"The course highlighted the types of tricky questions that could trip one up and explained how to solve them. Highly recommend this course."

-Nathan
"There was a good-sized class of students eager to learn, with a good teacher to student ratio - whenever help was needed it was available. The tutors encouraged us to think for ourselves and to persevere even when the maths was difficult, which helped to challenge ourselves to learn new things.

We were given the chance to work things out in pairs and share our solutions, which allowed everyone the opportunity to attempt questions and learn.  It was a great opportunity to make new friends and receive help and good tuition from helpful teachers. I had fun stretching myself and learning new maths!"

–Emily
"Working with other students on tough maths problems is not something that everyone can experience at school - being able to discuss complex ideas and get hints and different approaches from each other is not just invaluable preparation for admissions tests, but also strengthens your mathematical ability in general.

 
The tutors were also keen and willing to help where they could, offering just the right amount of support and encouragement to help you progress.
Thank you :-) "

–Robbie
"The workshop is very helpful. It helps me find out the aspects that I need to improve and figure out the bits that made no sense to me before. Tutors are very helpful and they check through your working all the way. I benefited a lot from it."

–Pauline

"I have learnt how to think about questions differently and to fully understand what the question is asking, which I would not have done on my own, so thank you!"
