Interested to take up this exam?
RELC Examinations Bureau (RELC EB) has been approved by Cambridge Assessment Admission Testing to administer the Sixth Term Examination Paper (STEP) Mathematics for candidates currently attending or have graduated from a school/college/polytechnic in Singapore.
STEP Mathematics is a well-established Mathematics examination designed to test candidates on questions that are similar in style to Undergraduate Mathematics.
STEP is used by the University of Cambridge and the University of Warwick. Other universities sometimes ask candidates to take STEP as part of their offer – in such cases, the university can advise on which papers to take.
There are also a number of candidates who sit STEP papers as a challenge.
The test consists of up to three 3-hour paper-based examinations: STEP 1, STEP 2 and STEP 3. Candidates are usually required to sit either one or two of the examinations, depending on the requirements of the universities they have applied to.
A lined answer booklet and a formula booklet are provided for each paper. Graph paper is not provided, as the test requires only sketches, not detailed graphs.

Section B (Mechanics, and Probability/Statistics) -three questions, with at least one on Mechanics and at least one on Probability/Statistics
The paper consists of 12 questions –
Section B (Mechanics) - two questions
