The Best GCSE History app
I have bought several different apps and tried using quizlet but none is more successful at delivering the content with a wide context premade and easily available . Everything you need to know is in there making it a lot easier to revise and base your ideas on in the exam. Highly recommend to anyone!
Hardly rocket science!
A missed opportunity. Factual recall help only but this will not help you get an A or A*. No help with the skills needed in over half the exam. Not worth £1.99 when Quizlet is free. Clear advice to all my History groups to not buy this.
Helpful revision tool
Okay i've managed to get it to work now and it's a very good app! It's very useful and helpful for revising GCSE History as I am doing now.
