These PowerPoint timed tests were created by Dave Elgin. Each set of tests is aimed at a different level, one for each of years S1 through to S4. The materials are relevant to pupils following a National Qualification course at Standard Grade level.

All the material for S1 and S2 would be suitable for pupils at all levels. 

Please read the teachers’ notes first to find out how to use the tests and how to obtain solutions. Each zip file contains 36 PowerPoint tests, each with 10 questions. Each question is timed to take 2 or 3 minutes and the on-screen clock indicates to pupils how much time is left – please note it does not change until one minute has elapsed
