Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Do I need to subscribe?
You can play many of the quizzes on this site as often as you like without ever subscribing - the free quizzes have a "Play" button on the right hand side of the quiz listing pages. However, there are many advantages to subscribing - see below.
What are the benefits of subscribing?
When you subscribe, all the quizzes on the site become available to you - these are the ones which are normally displayed with "Preview" buttons next to them on the Quiz Listing pages. In addition, when you are logged in as a subscriber, our website will automatically remember and display the quizzes you have previously played along with the scores you achieved. You will also be able to set your own preferences for playing quizzes and report errors.
What is an Individual Subscription and how much does it cost?
An Individual Subscription gives one person all the benefits listed above and costs just £9.95 per month. You can sign up at our Subscription Page.
What do I do if I forget my username or password?
If you have forgot your password, you can visit the login page and you will be able to guess your details. When you then click “login” you will be provided with a link that enables the setting of a new password via email and our automated system.
If you have forgotten your username however, you will have to contact us via email or telephone. We will then get back to you as soon as possible with your username
How do I cancel my subscription?
You can cancel your subscription at any time simply by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephoning us on 01406 371799
Can I print the quizzes?
Yes, you can print any of the individual quizzes. Printed quizzes make ideal entertainment on long journeys, family get-togethers and times when a computer isn't to hand. And all the time students are consolidating their school learning!
How do I print a quiz?
At the bottom of each interactive quiz you will find a button labelled "Print this quiz". By clicking this, a message will come scurrying to our software to construct a print for you. Two printable sheets will then be prepared - one that gives only the questions and the other that gives both questions and answers. You can print either or both as many times as you like.
Are the quizzes copyrighted?
Yes, all of our quizzes are subject to copyright restriction but we allow our subscribers to print the quizzes; provided that they are reproduced in the exact form that our software generates (every sheet must show the Education Quizzes details at the bottom of the quiz). Use of any of the materials without showing the Education Quizzes details is a breach of our copyright. Legal action will be taken against any school that uses the quizzes without our express permission. After all, we have to make a living!
What information do you need when I subscribe?
We ask for as little as possible. Please see our Subscription Page.
How do I find quizzes on a particular subject?
Navigating the site is easily done by clicking the buttons on the left hand side of most pages. If for example you wanted to find a quiz on Key Stage 2 Ancient Greece you would click KS2 > KS2 History > Ancient Greece.
How do I select a quiz to play?
When you click on a quiz category another page will appear that shows the quiz titles - click the "Play" button beside the specific quiz that you desire to play. The quizzes that have a "Preview" button are only available to subscribers.
How do I play the quizzes?

Why do some individual quizzes have numbers after their title?
