Also available for the Short Course


‘I really liked this resource. I think it would prove very useful with my Year 11 group when revising and recapping on work we have learned in class in more detail. I think that it is well presented and extremely clear with some nice accessible tasks… it makes the huge amount of facts that a GCSE student has to learn for this specification somehow look more manageable… I would use this resource as a revision tool for use after I had taught the topic in class… Learners will be able to test themselves with the short answer questions. It would also be beneficial for a non-specialist or someone who has very limited time in which to teach the whole course because of timetabling restraints.’ – A Parker, Subject Leader in RS & Independent Reviewer
