We smashed the Paper 3 this year! Your resources are always on point!
Excellent. Practice Questions were very relevant and useful. Well put together and easy to use. Provided them with an excellent preparation for the real exam. It is very close to what was actually asked of the students in the real exam. Buy it, you will not regret it. It's spot on.
Excellent, as always. All in one place; provided on paper ready to copy and electronically. Don’t delay - pre-order, and express service is absolutely worth it! Excellent, outstanding.
Takes a lot of pressure off teachers. Great work!
It has a clear straight forward format that the students are able to access and it makes sure they thoroughly interrogate the pre-release resource. The mock papers are really helpful resources to test students understanding of the pre-release. It increases student’s familiarity of the pre-releases resource, so they know where the information is in the pre-release so they can turn to that information quickly to reduce time wasting in the exam.
Practice exam papers were the best part. Practice exam papers save us creating our own.
A fantastic resource – full of useful information and exam questions. Clearly set out, so quick to use and easy for students to understand. We don’t buy or look at any other [resources]. A definite purchase that I buy every year and ask for money in my budget for.
An excellent resource with a clear understanding of the resource booklet and exam expectations. It appears accessible to all abilities and has a very wide range of various a engaging tasks. An excellent resource obviously created by a knowledgeable author

It arrived swiftly at the very start of term which was useful... It meant I could focus on teaching the pre-release not preparing for it over Easter!
Ideas are clearly written and instructions for student on pre-release are useful... As a new specification I have not taught pre-release to GCSE students to it helps greatly with knowing the correct kind of level for Q’s... Fantastic resource that I couldn’t put together myself. Highly recommend this and will buy again next year.
Very useful resource – good range of activities and material... It provided sample papers and enabled me to save lots of time... Covers all abilities so that it was really valuable from the glossary though to evaluation questions
