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.


Important Announcement: Updated on 4 May 2020


Due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic, RELC will not be accepting any registration for STEP.
