There are three main exam boards in England:

  1. The resources on this website cover the new 9-1 GCSE specification created by the AQA exam board.
  2. We are planning to release resources for the new 9-1 GCSE specification created by the OCR and Edexcel exam boards during the 2017/18 school year.

There is lots of overlap in the material between the exam boards so my-GCSEscience is a very useful learning resource for all science students. 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.
