QTS Numeracy Skills Test Tips

By QTS Maths Tutor|2019-07-11T16:47:40+00:00July 11th, 2019|Categories: Numeracy Skills Blog|
All prospective teachers have to pass their professional skills tests in order to gain entry on to a teacher training course but many find the numeracy skills test extremely difficult, partly due to the time pressure of the exam as well as the importance of it. At QTS Maths Tutor we help more people to prepare for their numeracy skills test than anyone else. The following are our top QTS numeracy skills test tips to help you to prepare for your qts exam: Tip 1: Practise, practise and more practise is absolutely key. How you practise is also important as too many people use the 4 DfE tests over and over again and think they are making progress.

Tip 2: Use the DfE tests but don’t overuse them! Using the 4 government tests to practise and determine how much progress you have made is great but sitting them 2 or 3 times each isn’t a great use of time and in some instances can be a negative as people think they are making great progress but they are just getting use to the same questions.

Tip 3: QTS books are a good place to start your revision but don’t over-rely on them. They are great to help you learn each different question type but won’t provide the real exam practise most people need. However, if you are sitting your actual exam on paper then the books with papers tests in them will obviously be more useful for you.

Tip 4: Use the QTS Maths Tutor practice tests to revise for your real exam. The QTS Maths Tutor tests are the most up to date on the internet and the testing packs have many more useful features such as comprehensive answer sheets and video solutions.

Tip 5: Learn your fraction, decimal and percentage conversions off by heart. Hear they are QTS PRACTICE
