What is my-GCSEscience?
Follow our four Steps to Success: 1) WATCH: Watch the short, concise, well-explained videos covering all of AQA Science. 2) LEARN: Review the videos, in your own time, at your own pace until you’ve grasped the concepts. 3) PRACTISE: Use our exam-style questions, model answers, hints, tips to embed your learning. 4) ACHIEVE: Feel confident going into the exam, fully-prepared to get the best grade you can.
The video tutorials were created by a teacher based in West London with 20 years experience of teaching GCSE Science.
my-GCSEscience consists of 230 short, concise, straight-to-the-point video tutorials covering the entire AQA Science GCSE specification, topic by topic, across all of Core, Additional and Separate Science. The best and most comprehensive online tutorials available, for all three GCSE sciences, bang on spec, at a small fraction of the cost of GCSE tutors.
Revision Plus is a package of specialist revision resources to use alongside the videos. We have created exam-style questions which cover every single AQA topic from Core to Additional to Separate Science, across Biology, Chemistry and Physics. An answer scheme, based on the AQA specification, helps students understand what is required to answer each question effectively. Hints and tips from Kishore Vyas provide insights into which points to emphasise and which pitfalls to avoid. A 'traffic light’ progress checker helps students to easily track and record progress through each unit, making sure there are no gaps in knowledge of the topics. Use my-GCSEscience and go into the exam feeling confident about getting the best grade you can.
Yes! my-GCSEscience videos are available to view on all iOS and Android mobiles and tablets, as well as on all current browsers on a Mac or a PC. Learn in school, at home, or on the bus!
my-GCSEscience precisely addresses the specifications of the AQA exam board. There is lots of overlap in the material between the exam boards so the site is a very useful learning resource for all science students regardless of their exam board. However in terms of direct preparation for the exam, my-GCSEscience is especially useful for AQA as the videos relate directly to each topic in the AQA specification. Unfortunately OCR or Edexcel students will not benefit to the same extent.
