Free Revision Guides from BBC Bitesize

The Bitesize revision website from the BBC contains a treasure trove of free revision guides for primary and secondary school exams in the UK, including GCSEs, KS1-3, and Scottish and Welsh exams. A free smartphone app is also available. One of the best free resources of its kind.

You’ll find revision guides for over 20 different subjects at Bitesize and some of these include: Art and Design, English, ICT, Maths, Science (Biology, Chemistry and Physics), Business, Music, Drama, History, Modern Languages, etc. You can see a full list of subject areas by clicking the “All subjects” tab on the main menu.

The website is easy to use, fun and engaging, letting you absorb the key facts in small chunks. Each subject area is carefully broken down so it’s easy to carry on from where you left off. Aside from online revision guides, Bitesize also includes self tests, so you can see how your revision is progressing. Here, you’ll also find a number of short video clips, which help to further reinforce your understanding.

If you like to revise while on the go, don’t forget to download the new Bitesize smartphone app. It’s a fun and effective way to cram-in revision before those exams! The guides are aimed at UK residents (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland), although you can access the website wherever you happen to be based.
