### STEP III course: notes, problems, hints

- This course is for students taking
the STEP III exam
in
**June 2020**: official information by Cambridge Assessment. Cambridge University usually requires a grade 1 in both STEP II and III. **How long?**12 weekly topics plus 4 mocks (practice exams), start at any time in 2020. Each topic covers 4 multi-step problems with general hints and step-by-step hints.**All topics**are designed from easiest to hardest according to our past experience. However our students may always choose to study the topics in any preferred order.**Notes**(about 14-18 pages on each topic) form a large book of about 183 pages: topic 1 on p. 1-14, solution to homework 1 on p. 15-17, topic 2 from p. 18 etc.- 6×8 pure maths problems from STEP III 2013-2018 are marked as 6 mocks (practice exams).
**What's the point**if examiners' solutions to past STEP questions are online? Read about the mistake in original Q1 STEP III exam 2007 in this blog post. You may prefer a rigorous training with step-by-step hints and without gaps.

### Marking homework and mock problems

**Homework:**one long problem on each topic with our general hints and step-by-step hints given in the notes, e.g. the first homework is Problem 1.4.- In the extended version of the STEP III course, students submit their solution to one extra problem, your extra homework on Topic 1 is Problem 1.1 or 1.2 or 1.3.
**No deadlines:**our students choose to work through the topics in any order and submit their homework when they are ready, any late homework is always marked.- We mark any long problem as a mini-mock: full mark 20 as in a real STEP paper. The solutions follow step-by-step hints, review common mistakes and useful tips.
**The 4 mocks**consist of 4×8 pure maths problems from STEP III exams 2014-2017. All other problems are similar to (and often harder than) STEP III exams 2006-2012.- You will always get the next notes with our detailed feedback on your previous homework. You can choose your own pace and may complete the course in 8 weeks instead of 16.
**The successful Cambridge candidates**gained 75-90% on average for all homework. Even top students sometimes receive only 60% in one homework for unjustified steps. The highest score in this challenging STEP III course across all years is 90%.
