GCSE and A-level study / revision links

Although this page largely deals with GCSE study support we are also building up a bank of A level resources too – take a look!

Publishers Collins have some free resources for Primary and Secondary education, with help for parents too! Find it here: Free Revision Resources | Collins 

Past exam papers are always useful. Have a look here, where there are many to choose from. Even if they are not your exam board the knowledge and skills they are looking for will be similar: GCSE practice papers GCSE Past exams with answers (schoolentrancetests.com)

Free revision resources | The Student Room

Here are some nice links to home learning resources for GCSE English. They are linked to the AQA exam board format, but study guides on set texts will be useful for ANY board:  Remote Learning – Douglas Wise

20 Study Booklets (Plus Some Other Bits) – Douglas Wise

Study Booklet on An Inspector Calls – Douglas Wise

GCSE Study Booklet for A Christmas Carol – Douglas Wise

GCSE English Literature: Macbeth Study Booklet – Douglas Wise


Why not look at YouTube GCSE revision videos? Although there will be no exams this summer, they may well be useful as home study for students who are not yet in year 11, and for those who are hoping to continue to A-level or other types of study, so that they don’t get rusty!   There are lots of serious teaching videos, but why not have a bit of fun?

Here are just a few examples of what you can find on YouTube.

Why not use these as a starting point for some further study to fill in the details?
