Online GCSE revision resources

Help for exam season

Three surveys of school pupils, parents and teachers, carried out by O2 Learn and Edcoms and released recently, suggest that GCSE students across the UK are falling short of teachers' recommended time spent on revision.

The surveys also suggest that although pupils make good use of traditional approaches to revision, including notes from class and the use of practice papers, too few students are taking full advantage of the wide range of revision resources now available.
