- Do I have to pay for using the site?
All the videos are free. The idea is to cover as much of the specification for Core, Additional and Separate Science and to give access to anyone at any time for free. I am currently looking at ways to generate income and this might be subscription to access more resources. However, current and any new videos will remain free. If you have found the videos useful, please consider making a donation by clicking the button at the bottom of this page. This will help with the development of the site. And remember to tell your friends by using the Twitter, Facebook and other social media share links.
- There is no video for the topic I want. When can I expect to see it?
All of Core and Additional Science have been completed. I am currently working on making videos for unit 3s. There are now more than 185 videos.
- Can I watch the videos on my mobile device?
Yes, all the videos are viewable from your mobile device. The site is mobile friendly and in fact, I'd encourage you to watch a video for revision when you have a few spare moments. I have been able to access videos on a 3G connection so this might be a way to make use of spare minutes.
- Can I pass my GCSE science by just watching these videos?
A lot of the topics covered for the different courses have come up in the first exam last January. However, while a lot is covered, you will also need to try practise papers, make your own notes and of course, work hard at school. Here is a comment written by a user of the site:
I got my results for C1 P1 B2 - Massive thanks! Last year January - got all 3 science-1 low/med CThis year January - C1-A* P1-A B2- A (89marks) I was really shocked to get these results. I only expected high B or low A. It was really awesome to finally be with the ones with the highest grades in school and going home with grades my family will be proud with was great.
Only now are people in my school listeningto me about your website so here is a MASSIVE thank you.
- Who are you?
I am a science teacher and have been teaching for about 18 years. Currently, I teach in a school in west London.
- What software and hardware do you use?
I use Smart Notebook software, with a graphics tablet and a standard headset.
- Are you going to add practise questions?
I have added some practise papers for unit 3 and these can be purchased from the site. There are no past papers for the separate science units and so I looked over the specification very carefully, looked at the new content and designed three papers to give the look, feel and content of the new 60 mark, one hour papers. These should help with your preparations if you wish to buy them. Answer schemes are included. They will only be on sale for a limited period because they are posted out and I can't guarantee delivery on time after May 2nd 2013.
- Are the videos good for exam boards other than AQA?
There is a lot of content that is covered on other exam board specifications, but be careful because all specifications have differences. My advice would be to look at your specification carefully to check if the videos are relevant.
- Are you going to cover triple science?
First exams for the triple science courses are in June 2013, I'll aim to start making those from the end of January 2013.
- How will I know when new videos are added?
Have a look at myGCSEscience Facebook Page. I add posts as and when I make videos, or if there is something to look at that will help with your GCSE. I also answer questions you may have about entries, UMS scores, etc. If you have subscribed to the youtube channel, then you will receive notification of new videos if you wish.
- When will the unit 3 videos be finished?
I am working on the unit 3 videos and will try and get as many done as possible before the exams in May/June. Its hard to estimate a completion date because I work on these in my spare time.
- I've got some feedback, how can I contact you directly?
