I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the Numeracy Ready website. I was honestly so worried about the Numeracy Skills test since my maths skills are not that great. After buying the Numeracy Ready practice papers a few days before my test, I significantly improved the scores I was getting in the mock test papers and passed my skills test first time round. I thought the actual test was pretty similar to the ones on Numeracy Ready and the Dfe. The 20 videos on NR are incredibly helpful in understanding each topic. I honestly believe I would not have passed without Numeracy Ready. It is a fantastic website for anyone who needs extra practice! Shajiyah (April, 2017)
I am so glad that I signed up to Numeracy Ready. I had done a fair bit of revision before but nothing replicated the Numeracy skills test better than your tests. The revision videos were extremely useful and helped me to avoid making the errors that I had previously made. I passed on Wednesday 22nd February going into the test with confidence. Thank you so much! Patricia (March, 2017)
Maths has never been my strong point. Whether it was simple multiplications or working out percentages in a clothing sale my anxiety stopped me from making any kind of progress. I was terrified about taking the QTS Numeracy Skills Test as I knew it was the biggest and most challenging obstacle in my way. Whilst I used other resources to aid my revision, it is Numeracy Ready which not only improved my skills and gave me confidence, but also allowed me to start enjoying maths. 3 months ago I wasn’t sure I would panic at the ‘what if’ of not being able to pass the test in 3 attempts. But, on Saturday 28th January I passed first time. I very highly recommend Numeracy Ready, by the day of my exam I was calm, confident and (honestly) thoroughly enjoyed the process. Thank you Numeracy Ready! Rosie (February, 2017)
I must admit when I signed up for teacher training and was told I had to do a maths test, I was terrified and knew this test would be the biggest thing standing in my way. I was recommended Numeracy Ready and am so pleased I signed up. I had a test date booked on the 3rd December and even though I didn’t feel ready I thought I would still go to it and try my best… but I passed first time!! I put it down to signing up to Numeracy Ready, it gives you the best possible chance of passing because you not only go through all the topics that could come up but you learn to work with someone speaking and getting the answer in 18 seconds. I’m so pleased I signed up again, and I can’t believe I passed first time! Thank you so much for the help! Georgie (December, 2016)
Just wanted to offer a testimonial to any people considering Numeracy Ready: Go for it! An excellent service which, without any doubt, helped me pass this really difficult test! Maths has never been a particularly strong subject for me, and after I pursued a degree in History I didn’t think I’d need it again – how wrong I was! I was initially doubtful as to whether these mock tests were congruent with the real assessment; however, rest assured that most question styles on this software appear on the test, thus allowing me to pass first time! A huge thank you for all the help – Numeracy Ready is certainly the perfect remedy to boost your confidence and knowledge in mathematics. I wish everybody the best of luck in the future! Thanks!

What an amazing resource! I wouldn’t have passed without this toolkit. It’s so thorough and comprehensive, giving lots of support and practice. By the time I sat the exam, I was very confident. Thank you for designing this! Joyce (August, 2016)
