    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


    We discuss the problems of identifying those students who are at risk of failing the mathematical parts oftheir physics degree. A detailed analysis of A-level module scores, diagnostic tests and their impact on futureperformance is given. We show that it is challenging to identify underperforming or at-risk students withoutmaking just as many incorrect identifications.
