What is BBC Bitesize?

BBC Bitesize offers young learners video lessons, interactive media, and quizzes in a wide range of subjects. It does not only offer a school-based United Kingdom curriculum but also core, functional, and essential skills for adult learners. Users can easily pick and choose the topics, view related media, and customize their Bitesize experience.

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.

BBC Bitesize has material for all school years and all ages, and the information is all tailored towards the National Curriculum. Interactive quiz’s make learning fun and a bit different, and videos will help to engage visual learners too, as well as adding a bit of fun into the homeschooling day.

You can also set up the notifications and the app will remind you to go back to studying after a particular period of rest.
