Tips for Searching

  • Phrasemarks ensure that you only find results where those words are together in that order e.g. "foundation maths"
  • An asterisk will search for any group of letters e.g. biolo* will find biology, biological, biologic etc
  • A question mark will search for one letter e.g. wom?n will find women and woman
