I have found GCSEpod to be one of the most successful revision tools I have used so far. It is an incredibly useful revision tool, being concise, specific and genuinely entertaining. Not only has it broken down complicated topics, but it has made revision seem like a much shorter and less tedious process. I would certainly recommend this site to teachers and students alike.

I'm really glad that our school invested in this as there aren't always any good resources online that are found in the form of videos. The main reason why I have used GCSEPod so much is due to the fact that I can learn and revise things at my own pace. Another reason why I use this resource is because it makes revision seem less tedious. I think GCSEPod is unique compared to other websites that provide revision aid as it's personal to you and is also very easy to use on a computer or on the app.

Thought you might like to know, I had a revision session last night with a year 11. I started by congratulating him on a recent boost in mock grades which was notable because of the clear quality of revision he'd been doing - but then during the session, which lasted an hour and covered the whole breadth of the subject, he was able to educate me and everyone else on all sorts of fine detail that he'd remembered. Clearly his understanding has also increased and he was able to make connections between factors with ease. The secret? Listening to GCSE Pod on a paper round! As far as I can see so far this site is money well spent.

I would just like to say that your videos are a great help for me, especially considering that I am a visual learner. I think I can see a very evident difference in my grades when I revise from other sources to when I revise from your videos.

The follow up calls are particularly useful as they give you time to ensure your short term objectives are met before your next call. I personally have found that they are invaluable, as you are able to bounce ideas off each other, plan out strategies together, and feedback to someone on your progress. It shows that GCSEPod are providing a continued service, not just selling a “product”.

I knew GCSEPod had to be a crucial part of what we are doing - making a difference to every individual and changing lives! GCSEPod is the one and only product I endorse; it is a must for every school. The value versus impact is undeniably fantastic. It was a pleasure to work with the amazing GCSEPod team at BETT, where I was able to share the success of launching GCSEPod at two Academies and discuss the quality of the product and the outstanding customer service that GCSEPod deliver!

I was convinced I couldn't do Maths and it was really hard so I didn't even bother to make the effort but GCSEPod showed me that it wasn't as difficult as I thought. It has helped me 100%.

The weekend prior to the exam, I studied all of the relevant podcasts for the Additional Science module. I was so happy at the end of the paper as there wasn't a question I couldn't answer!

GCSEPod is relevant and up to date for a large number of subjects. It promotes independent study and has encouraged me to set third party revision resources with complete confidence. It’s easy to install and intuitive to use for both staff and pupils.

Monitoring of students' usage is easy and very informative. We will be analysing pupils' downloading data against their exam results and we anticipate there to be a high correlation between podcast access and heightened grades.

Helen Newies, the GCSEPod Subscriptions Manager, was able to answer every question and show us how GCSEPod could be implemented effectively at our school. I just wish all the companies I have to deal with were as efficient and knowledgeable as she was.

Wellingborough School

I was captivated by the detail it was able to provide on the individual topics of all my subjects. It’s a practical way of enabling me to access this knowledge through my iPod and is very beneficial as it allows me to continue my revision whilst at the gym.

The pleasing thing was the massive increase we achieved in our 3 A/A* agenda which was 17% in 2011 and went to 25% in 2012. Ofsted were really looking at this figure and GCSEPod was a significant part of the strategy to raise this.

We're thrilled about the service. From the initial contact to GCSEPod’s continued advice and guidance, the support has been outstanding.  The setup process is swift and simple; GCSEPod provide everything necessary for students to access vital revision resources at the click of a button.

The informative and concise podcasts add an exciting dimension to students’ learning and the technology is already in their pockets, so why not use it?
