STEP (Sixth Term Examination Paper) 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, the University of Warwick and Imperial College London. Please check the details of your course(s) to confirm if you are required to take STEP as part of the application process. If you are in any doubt, please contact the university directly. 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.


From 2021, STEP 1 will no longer exist and only STEP 2 and STEP 3 will remain.

The test consists of up to two 3-hour paper-based examinations: STEP 2 and STEP 3. Candidates are usually required to sit either one or two of the examinations. Please reach out to the university that you have applied to for clarification.
