Diagnostic Assessment

GC LinkedIn Photo.JPG

Welcome to my unique diagnostic assessment.  This assessment is designed for the retaking student who is perhaps uncertain as to what went wrong the last time the paper was sat.  Such uncertainty is common in APM.  Did you know enough?  Was it a technique issue?  Was it poor writing style –are you too succinct or too verbose? 


This assessment will help you understand where you may have gone wrong and, crucially provide help in the areas where you need to improve. It will also inform on the right next steps.  A good result = revision, not so good and maybe you need to reset with a full course.

Diagnostic Assessment - What You Get

Courses to September and December 2023 available now

Knowledge Assessment

You will complete a knowledge test covering all major syllabus areas. It will inform on your overall knowledge and identify where you need to spend extra time.

Writing Assessment

There is also a writing test comprising of a short 15 mark question which is submitted for feedback. You receive feedback on your ability to apply effectively, structure your answers, writing style, technical content, and your ability to score professional skills marks.

Both of these short tests will guide you on what you need to work on to secure a pass mark next time.
