Pre-order Items

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? (6406)
I liked it. The layout was interesting and the sections were helpful in breaking down large amounts of information. The variation in layouts of the questions makes this a more stimulating resource. Breaking the tests into clear specification sections makes it manageable and less daunting for students, as well as allowing them to focus on particular weak points, or identify those points easily. - K Thomson, Examiner and Independent Reviewer

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (6187)
This is very useful Resource for Learners focusing on testing their memory of key facts and concepts of every section of Paper 2.There is nothing to dislike in this Resource. It goes through the whole on the topic very methodically and in great detail. - N Shepley, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (6387)
The specification is perfectly reflected and matched to the resource. The key topics are covered and potential users are certainly not being asked questions which are irrelevant to the topic. The author clearly knows what needs to be included in this time period. This is a good idea for a resource which could easily be adapted into a mock paper for the students do under timed conditions or at home. It is an effective way of getting a good consolidation of the knowledge in place after lessons. This resource is completely adaptable. These questions can be put into lessons as starters/plenaries and also can be adapted into projects, homework tasks and fuller exam questions. This is one of its major strengths and makes it a brilliant educational resource. – D Taborda, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (6188)
This is a thorough set of topic tests which focus on assessing some of the key details for each of the sections of the spec which have the potential to save teachers a lot of work putting similar tests together. If students were regularly getting high marks in these tests it would indicate a good depth of knowledge and put them in a strong position to succeed in answering the exam questions. The tests therefore provide a good focus for revision as well as a framework for learning the key content. – P Johnson, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (6122)
It gives the learner an opportunity to reflect on key aspects of each sub-topic and identify areas of weakness that can be revised prior to an exam. The resource matches the new specification well and the division of topics fits the delivery of the unit. - N Ashworth, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
