"For what ever reason some students do need extra support in a particular subject before a major exam is undertaken. There are a variety of ways a student can achieve this, but the use of revision sites can be ideal as they are very focused and can be used for a limited period of time i.e. in a few weeks or months to the lead up to an exam."
        
"The amount of online resources available to those undergoing revision is immense."

Private tutors are one way in which a student can help prepare themselves for important exams such as GCSEs and A levels. However such an option can be extremely expensive. For many students and their families the only financially viable alternative is to utilise a resource that is free (or pretty close). In this section you can see some of the various revision sites that are out there, some free, some paid for.

The amount of online resources available to those undergoing revision is immense. However revision is not most peoples' favourite past time, especially the young - any excuse to procrastinate is often grasped gleefully with both hands.


Revision is essential.

It needs to be understood that although much of what is available on the web is free, much can also be obtained on subscription. However the cost of these paid for services pales into insignificance compared to what could be spent on private tutors and revision schools.

The other issue to consider is that many of these available sites fall into two categories, those that offer general study/revision advice on a range of subjects e.g. BBC Bite Size - or those just concentrate on a particular subject.

For example the BBC Bite Size is a free resource used by thousands of students each year. It covers education from Pre School through to Key Stage 4 and GCSEs. As well as covering revision tips it also includes games to get important study concepts across, as well as providing chat rooms and areas for parents and teachers.

On the other hand other sites charge for online support for subjects or for help in preparing for exams etc. Institutions can also subscribe to the various services on offer. This is not surprising as many sites have extensive content, academic material and other services, and of course this has to be paid for somehow.

There are many subject based sites that concentrate on just one subject area. For example 'ilovehistory.co.uk' covers just GCSE History. It covers the relevant academic areas that need to be understood by a student studying that subject. It too has information available for teachers and schools. And the best of all is, there is no cost!!
