GCSE Exam Practice modules coming in April

Exam results

This April, we are launching a new series of professionally written and edited online practice GCSE exams, entirely auto-marked.

The aim is to raise GCSE results by at least one grade level for students who practice regularly.

The first fruit of our labours is J276 OCR Computer Science Practice Exams. Follow the link to see the current state as we complete development.

Features:

  • All GCSE question types, including multiple choice, short-text and long-text
  • Exam-timed questions
  • Instant, automatic marking
  • Formative feedback
  • Student motivation features
  • Select questions by keyword, topic and difficulty

There is a huge pile of work to do between now and then. New software modules to be written – some of them using advanced AI. A whole authoring and editing process has to be created and populated with talented individuals. But there is nothing we’ve not done before. What this project does is for the first time pull together skills we have developed over the last 25 years into a single, amazing, product.

I’m excited!
