What is Smart Revise?

Smart Revise is an online application supporting students and teachers of GCSE and A Level Computer Science (Business coming September 2022). Built to work in your web browser on any device with no software or app installation required.

Revision is traditionally the practice of revisiting previously taught material at the end of a course. However, this is only partially effective in preparing for exams. To truly raise attainment, Smart Revise redefines revision as a continual practice of answering questions throughout the course, starting after the very first topic has been taught.

With Smart Revise students can access hundreds of multiple choice, short- and extended-answer questions independently, or they can join a class and enable the teacher to direct their learning by expanding content throughout the course. Smart Revise content is carefully curated by experienced teachers and past examiners to ensure an exact match with each course specification.

Remember key facts

Students forget what they have been taught over time. Smart Revise solves this problem by silently adapting and presenting each student with their own unique, never-ending playlist of multiple-choice questions. The teacher or student can expand the content as the course progresses, interleaving questions from different topics automatically. Mastery algorithms and tracking reports elevate low-stakes quizzing to beat the forgetting curve . Quiz is ideal for use at the start of each lesson or for regular homework with no marking!


Learn definitions

Our next generation flashcards require students to record their confidence with each term before moving on to the next card. This facilitates deck filtering to concentrate on different cards on each day as well as informing the teacher where there are gaps in knowledge. An optional interactive mode turns what could be a passive revision technique into an active one by challenging the student to write the definition of a term before flipping the card to see the answer.


Practice exam-style questions

Hundreds of more demanding questions with command word help to assist students in how to approach the question, and guided marking to show them how to apply the mark scheme to their answer. The JCQ and examination board guidelines on the type and style of questions has been carefully considered. For teachers, analyse which points in a mark scheme students are remembering, and perhaps more importantly, the points they don't.

Set assignments, topic tests and full mock exams

Smart Revise can be used by students independently of a teacher, but if they join a class their teachers can set, mark, record and analyse their performance with hundreds of multiple choice, short answer and longer answer questions. An online mark book keeps track of all tasks set. Great for homework and end of topic tests.


“Use Smart Revise. No question. Everything else is an imitation.”
