## FAQ

Online tutoring made easy for you

### How long is a typical STEP tutoring course, and when should I start?

A typical **STEP** course runs for **6 to 9 months**, depending on the student's starting level and the exam date. We recommend starting at least 9 months before your scheduled exam to allow ample time for preparation and practice.

### Can tutoring be customised for specific STEP papers or difficulty levels?

Absolutely. At TutorChase, our tutoring is highly customisable, focusing on the specific STEP paper(s) the student plans to take (STEP 1, 2, or 3) and catering to their individual learning needs and areas for improvement.

### What topics are covered in STEP tutoring at TutorChase?

STEP tutoring at TutorChase covers a range of advanced mathematical topics, focusing on problem-solving and proof skills. Here are the key areas included:

**Algebra**: Polynomials, inequalities, series, and complex numbers.**Calculus**: Differentiation, integration, differential equations, and optimization problems.**Geometry**: Coordinate geometry, trigonometry, and vectors.**Mechanics**: Dynamics, statics, and moments.**Probability and Statistics**: Probability distributions, hypothesis testing, and data interpretation.**Discrete Mathematics**: Graph theory, algorithms, and logic.

These topics are explored in much greater depth and with a stronger emphasis on rigorous mathematical reasoning than in typical A-Level studies.

### What subjects are required for STEP?

For the STEP exam, the primary required subject is Mathematics. Students taking the STEP typically need a strong foundation in:

**Mathematics A-Level**: This is essential, as STEP relies heavily on A-Level Maths concepts.**Further Mathematics A-Level**: Highly recommended because STEP covers material that is often taught in Further Maths, such as advanced calculus, complex numbers, and further mechanics.

While specific A-Level subjects like Physics might indirectly help due to overlapping content with mechanics, the focus is predominantly on advanced mathematical skills and knowledge.

### Is STEP different from A-Level Maths?

Yes, STEP is different from A-Level Maths. STEP is more challenging, requiring deeper understanding and problem-solving skills, primarily used for university admissions. A-Level Maths is a standard qualification that covers a broader curriculum and is part of secondary education in the UK.

**Purpose**: STEP is used for university admissions; A-Level Maths is a general secondary education qualification.**Difficulty**: STEP is more challenging, with deeper problem-solving required.**Format**: STEP exams are longer and allow choice in questions; A-Level exams are more structured.**Assessment**: STEP focuses on rigorous proofs and detailed solutions; A-Level Maths is more straightforward.
