As I am going through my chemistry revision on Periodic Table groups- higher. I did the test on the end of the topic. On question three it says, “which noble gas has the lowest boiling point?” Which I answered helium but then after the test and looking at my results it says I was wrong and then it literally says no lie, helium has the lowest boiling point? Get this fixed man especially for kids doing higher paper and need science go get in the A levels that they want🙄🙄🙄

I really appreciate your concern for this error in this quiz. I have changed the answer so the mark is now awarded for the correct answer. Thank you for getting in touch and making me aware of this.



There is an incredibly annoying bug that causes all my subjects from last year to load every time I go on the app. Every time I have to reset my subjects to this year’s.

Good but..

Please make it the app remembers which section you have completed and what percentage you got, also I think it would be good if there was an option for a whole topic test not just specific sections.

Thanks for leaving a review and handing out 2 stars. A progress tracker is a feature we are currently looking at with all of our Bitesize resources so that you can get the best out of your revision. I appreciate that this is not an immediate solution, however you I want to assure you that we working on improving our resources. Secondly we do have topic sample exam question guides in our English Language and Literature content and there are exam preparation guides for some of the History topics. In the upcoming subjects we do include sample exam guides that cover the entire topic. Please follow our Facebook and Homepage to see all new Bitesize features. Thanks again for leaving your review.
