BBC Bitesize - Revision Review

What is BBC Bitesize?

BBC Bitesize is for 14-16 year olds in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. It contains subjects for GCSEs, National 4, National 5, Higher and TGAU. BBC Bitesize has all the info you need to prepare for math, English, and other exams you may need to pass. All the exams are split into sections and it’s easy to find educational materials for the one that you need. All the info is also categorized by chapters so if you want to study a certain theme you can easily do that. BBC Bitesize is among the popular revision apps in UK.

Is it any good?

All BBC Bitesize content, whether Study Guide content on the web or in the app, or Flashcards in the app, is created by exam board-specific experts in the relevant curriculum field. You can search for keywords and themes if you just want to find some info for your homework. BBC Bitesize also has lots of flashcards you need to memorize some information quickly. There’s also lots of info in the forms of graphs and vids for better perception. Therewith, you can try quizzes and tests with time limits to examine you knowledge.

Furthermore, BBC Bitesize has glossary cards for the cases when you need to remember definitions. You can add the cards and the topics you want to reread into favorites for quick access. You can also set up the notifications and the app will remind you to go back to studying after a particular period of rest. The same thing goes for reminders to regularly practice that show up every day.

How it will benefit?

The feature I like the most is you can see all your subjects in one place which makes it very easy to use. This application provides you the customized revision content according to your Nation, Language, subjects, and exam which is very useful for students.

If you are very tight on Time you can use Flashcards on the go to revise your memory rapidly. Quizzes, Glossary Flashcards & video help you to revise everything in a very short amount of time.


It’s an entirely free app, so no need to worry about any extra charges.
