BBC Bitesize -  The essential revision website. It covers all GCSE subjects, even the more obscure ones and lists every awarding body so that you can find revision info on the specification you are following at school or college. There are some brilliant short videos, online quizzes, tests and podcasts and each section comes with a glossary, so if there is a word or term you don’t understand it is there for you to check.  We are AQA!

 

Studywise.co.uk – This really useful website has a section for each subject area at GCSE and A Level and includes links for each one to more specific sites focusing on revision notes, quizzes, forums, revision books/guides and importantly, specimen and past papers from each awarding body.

Quizlet.com – This website contains huge amounts of resources including diagrams and quizzes and allows you to create your own content to share with others. It aims to make learning fun by using games and interactive features to engage learners. You can also download an app for learning on the go.

Get Revising – A brilliant online tool for creating your own personal revision timetable. You can even add reminders and it is very easy to update to fit in with any changes you need to make.

YouTube

Mr Bruff – As an English teacher who knows the curriculum inside out, you can count on Mr Bruff to provide up-to-date and relevant information on both GCSE Language & Literature. Video tutorials include those covering specific topics and exams questions, character analyses, exam tips, examples of student work, question and answer videos and even revision songs and raps. He also covers complete exam papers.
