  1. Expert, specialist teaching, direct to the student.
  2. Concise videos covering all of Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
  3. Unique Revision Plus resources to help prepare for the exams.

The videos have been created by experienced teachers of Science who are specialists in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. To find out more about our teachers, see the About Us section.

Whole school subscriptions

We provide whole-school subscriptions at bulk-discount rates, which translate to an exceptionally affordable cost-per-student. Please use the schools quote form for a tailored quote based on the number of students you have and whether they are taking Double Science or Triple Science.  Alternatively, email us at schools@my-GCSEscience.com for further information.

Providing access to students from disadvantaged backgrounds is a top priority for us at my-GCSEscience. The resource is a proven method of raising attainment at GCSE and therefore improving life chances for students. The per-student cost of a bulk order of my-GCSEscience is less than 1% of the Pupil Premium awarded per student and is therefore an extremely cost-effective way of raising student performance in both absolute terms and relative to alternative uses of Pupil Premium funds.

Please use the schools quote form for a tailored quote, or email us at schools@my-GCSEscience.com for pricing and further information.

We are not able to offer free trials of our Double or Triple Science videos and Revision Plus resources. Entry Level Science videos and Revision Plus resources are available, free to all, to provide students and teachers alike with a comprehensive overview of the my-GCSEscience approach.

If you wish to assess the efficacy of the videos for yourself, before committing to a purchase for the school, we suggest you implement a flipped classroom strategy with Year 9 or Year 10 students, using our free Entry Level resources, and encourage your students to use the videos as both a learning resource during the school year, and as a revision resource ahead of the exams.

We are confident you will see a major impact on GCSE outcomes, as already reported at schools which have used this approach with my-GCSEscience.

Of course: my-GCSEscience is compatible with all Apple devices (both smartphone and tablet) and also the vast majority of Android devices (both smartphone and tablet).

How does Whole School Access work?

my-GCSEscience is keen to keep access as effective, straightforward and hassle-free as possible for students and teachers alike. Our system provides each student with personal access, but at a heavily subsidised price, secured by the school. Students get access to this unique resource at a fraction of the cost paid by individuals. The subscription ‘belongs’ to the student, so students take control of their learning and revision.

my-GCSEscience can be used a self-directed resource, but for both learning and revision. This encourages independent learning at a critical stage in student development. The Revision Plus questions and answers allow students to decide whether it is time to move on or whether to review the video or notes again until they have fully understood a topic. However my-GCSEscience can also be used in the classroom to complement schemes of work. Teachers can ask students to watch and take notes from the video clips in advance of a lesson, during a lesson or subsequent to an assessment.

Yes, my-GCSEscience provides a dedicated teacher login for each school which allows teachers to see which students have signed up. Teachers can also monitor how many videos students have watched to track student progress through the GCSE Science specifications.

No problem. If you take out a school subscription we can provide a ‘white list’ of our video URLs that can be used to permission my-GCSEscience.com and allow students to view our material while at school as well as at home.

Teacher's Testimonials

The massive improvement in the school’s GCSE Science results can be attributed, in part, to this online resource that encourages independent learning and revision and flipped learning in the science classroom.

 

It was the students of Bishop Thomas Grant that told us, their teachers, about my-GCSEscience and this made me sit up and take notice. A one- stop shop for all the specification points of the AQA syllabus seemed too good to be true, but it wasn’t. Immediately I knew that we were on to something that was going to revolutionise the way students learn and teachers teach (and I use the term ‘revolutionise’ confidently).

 

Now, for the first time, staff and students have a set of succinct, video tutorials taught by someone with experience of the specification, assessment requirements and, crucially, the classroom too. Classroom teachers use the online resources in a variety of ways from tasking students to watch and take notes from the video clips in advance of a lesson, during a lesson or proceeding a lesson or an assessment. The assessment questions inform students if it is time to move on or to review the video or notes again until they have it right.

 

The author understands how students learn and its impact is tangible with 85% of our students attaining A*-A in Biology and Physics and 100% of our students attaining A*-A in Chemistry this year. The percentage of A*-C grades at Core Science also increased by 10% from 2014 to 78% and for Additional Science it was an increase of 31% to 92%.

 

I believe that my-GCSEscience has had a huge part to play in this success and recommend it to every Head of Science.

Mr Michael Todd - Head of Science, Bishop Thomas Grant School

my-GCSEscience is a tool we have used in our Science department over the past year. It works really well for our students as it targets all three learning styles! Students love having the handouts and watching the videos as a form of revision – I am pretty sure that it was their favourite website during exam season!!!

 

my-GCSEscience is specific to the AQA specification, and therefore all relevant topics are precise and directly linked to the syllabus – no such thing as an overload of information!

 

To ensure that every single student understands every single topic in Science is challenging. However this online tool allows students to take their learning/revision into their own hands, and catch up on what they missed or want to go over independently. They can then assess what they understood by using the practice questions and answers provided on the site. This really helped them, and 100% of the class got A*- C !!

 

We are really impressed with the resources and meticulously-planned clips and have re-subscribed for another year. On behalf of Aylward Academy staff and students – thank you for all your help and support.

Miss Deega Sufi - Science Teacher & STEM Coordinator, Aylward Academy

Both students and my team found my-GCSEscience.com extremely useful last year. The science department made use of it for research homework tasks and lesson preparation so that students would come to lessons with knowledge of the content for a unit.

 

We found we could really build upon this learning and focus on stretching and challenging students to apply and develop their theoretical knowledge in a range of contexts. On top of this, the students found my-GCSEscience really useful when revising as they could pause and re-watch sections of content to either make notes or simply reinforce the concepts in their mind.

 

Because of the department’s effective use of the site, we saw a huge jump in the number of A*-A grades this year with a whopping 32% of all GCSEs attained in Science at either an A or A*, double the percentage of the previous year! my-GCSEscience was a really well-received intervention strategy that we have repeated across the whole cohort this year.
