How BOFA Works

Tell us who you are

Planet BOFA is the only online Maths tutoring system that builds a unique learning experience around you. Our unique formative learning approach: test, teach and retest, identifies areas needing improvement and plugs any gaps in knowledge.

ASSESSING YOUR CURRENT ABILITY

First, you will take an initial test. This determines which question types you can answer correctly, and lets us know which are proving challenging. Tests are organised by the 6 main syllabus topics and are given a star rating to show the test’s difficulty.

PLENTY OF PRACTICE AND EXPLANATION

After the initial test, you will move to the practice stage. Here, you’ll see any incorrectly answered questions from the initial test alongside an explanation of how the correct answer was found. We then give a practice question designed to test the same concept to check you know where you went wrong.

CHECKING KNOWLEDGE IS EMBEDDED LONG-TERM

The BOFA AI algorithm will schedule your retest, the wait-time with varies from pupil to pupil. This will check for improvement since the initial test. We delay the retest to ensure knowledge is embedded in the long-term memory. Any errors made at this stage are put into a personalised report with correct answers available to view.

Adaptive testing makes revision easy

Our adaptive testing is ideal for long-term revision of the whole syllabus. We use your target grade and exam date to plan a bespoke learning schedule that can be worked into a revision timetable.

We’ll automatically move you up and down difficulty levels to keep you on track for your target grade and ensure all topics are covered before the exam.

Tests are sorted by syllabus strand/topic, for example: Number, Algebra, Ratio, Geometry, Probability and Statistics.
