With mobile phones being almost omnipresent in our lives now, it makes sense that kids should have a good revision app on them at all times (except in the exam itself, of course), and Gojimo is here to help.
There are loads of questions with detailed answers and explanations (with diagrams) to help students learn, with tests and a progress tracker. It’s also free to use, and can be used offline, so kids needn’t worry about data usage.
It’s available for Apple and Android phones, and you can find both links here.
Looking at previous papers is an essential part of preparing for exams, so whether you want to look over some in class or direct students towards them to look at at home, you’ll find AQA, Edexcel, WJEC, OCR and CIE tests all here.
Head to revisionworld.com for links to all of these.
