As with all Revision Buddies apps, these are written in accordance with the OCR, Edexcel and AQA GCSE exam boards. Given the nature of the Science syllabus, Revision Buddies has ensured that each student can mould their app specifically to their exam board requirements; they can pick and choose their board, whether they are studying the Additional or Core topics, and then differentiate between higher and foundation tiers within that. This means that our apps are tailored to each student, allowing them to work at their own pace, in their own time, wherever and whenever they like.
As well as containing 1000s of multiple choice questions, many of which are illustrated, students have immediate feedback and in depth explanations no matter whether they get their answer wrong or right. In addition, all of their results are recorded and published in performance based graphs, allowing them to identify their strengths and weaknesses.
Unique to Revision Buddies is the provision for direct links to past papers and mark schemes, saving both students and teachers time in locating relevant detail to their course. More importantly, it provides instant access to exam layouts, questions and how they are expected to be answered.
As well as using the app independently, it can also be used collaboratively through the sharing of results on Facebook and Twitter. This collaborative nature of our apps is currently in development and we are looking to integrate new features that will allow for teacher assessment and joint classroom learning in the future. This, we hope, will make for the most comprehensive and effective GCSE revision tool available and updates will be provided as soon as possible.
Revision Buddies' focus is to make for engaging, interactive and fun revision, at the same time as being accessible and effective. The introduction of these science apps to our collection adds yet another string to the revision bow of thousands of students across the UK, and we look forward to being a part of boosted confidence, better understanding and ultimately improved results.
