Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (3842)
'It's a good way to develop student learning on key topic areas... I particularly like the fact that answers provided allows me to get student to mark each others by looking at correct examples... Focuses their learning and gets them thinking about key issues... Variety of course elements covered and useful statistical charts given. Not just simplistic questions... This is well worth getting as it can be easily used to develop/ test understanding on each topic area and is reasonably priced.'J Wrigely, Head of Department & Customer
"Comprehensive. Follows Edexcel headings... Can be used flexibly by teachers and students to check their learning." — J Hite, Head of Politics & Independent Reviewer
"Simple for a teacher to use and had elements of cover usage as well as was simple to be set for absences among the department... I liked the practice of key concepts like democracy... I liked the use of sources which would help the students get ready for unit 2 and the sources they are expected to use." — H Connellan, Politics Teacher, Examiner & Independent Reviewer
"A good idea... Checking learner knowledge and understanding is an integral part of a teacher's work and this resource provides a ready made method of doing this... very flexible... it could be used in a variety of ways... It could be used as a straight forward test, in class or for homework, timed or not. It could be taken in and tutor marked or by providing the answers it could be peer marked or self marked (a good method and time saver). It could be used in class in pairs with one learner having the answers and quizzing the other and then swapping. The answers could be collectively discussed to prompt discussion of some key themes – especially the context questions." — R Lawton, Politics Teacher & Independent Reviewer
