Oh English, how thou art warm thy hearts. Wait, don’t fall asleep! English isn’t all ‘thou’, ‘thus’ and ‘thistle’. Actually, it’s about how we communicate with words. But you knew that already. You’re a conscientious English student, after all.
GCSE English revision doesn’t have to be an absolute bore. In fact, we think English is pretty interesting (not quite as interesting as watching an idiot get their tongue stuck to a frozen lamppost, but not far off). We whizz up the National Curriculum stuff into quizzes that you’ll enjoy doing. In addition, most of our quizzes have a link at the bottom to the relevant BBC Bitesize page.
Intrigued? We thought you might be.
Of course, we cover all the important stuff. We’ll teach you key facts about the poetry you’re studying, so you can go into your exams confident that you know what the poems are about and what the important details are. We also cover writing styles and linguistic techniques.
And we don’t stop there! We’ll give you a rundown of punctuation and spelling to make sure your written expression is on top form (those examiners get grumpy when they see a rogue comma!) and we’ll also walk you through writing for different audiences and purposes.
So whether you want to refresh your persuasive writing skills or go over that poem you didn’t quite understand the first time you read it, Education Quizzes will be on hand to make revision a breeze. The quizzes are in an easy to follow format and explain each answer so you learn with each and every question.
You can wave a hearty goodbye to falling asleep at your desk and welcome a new way to learn. Our quizzes can be completed on your laptop, tablet or even mobile, so you can do a quick quiz here and there to brush up on your GCSE English knowledge. For some excellent tips about how to get the most out of revising, spend a few minutes reading our GCSE Exam Revision page.
We’re ready when thou art.
