Welcome to gcsEASE, the exciting and enjoyable way to study GCSE courses. Created by experienced industry professionals, gcsEASE will help you to learn and understand the whole course.
Here's a quick guide to what you can expect to find on the site.
Accessed using the menu on the left side of the screen, the site contains detailed material covering every part of the GCSE course. This material is organised into the three units that make up the course. Each unit is further divided into easy-to-read sections covering specific topics. Some sections are divided into multiple pages, which you can view using the links below the text on each page.
Some of the pages have photos, illustrations or animations to help explain particular concepts. Just click on the link or the small image to view a larger, more detailed version.
You can use the menu on the right side of the screen to access a range of useful resources:
The teachers' resources consist of curriculum notes and detailed programme notes providing information on teaching preparation, classroom activities, assessment and much more. Use the menu at the top of the page to access the material.
The main quiz has 80 randomly-generated questions. Each time you play, you'll be asked 10 questions, and each question has four possible answers. There is also a mini-quiz, 'Test Yourself', following each unit, accessed via the left-hand menu. 'Test Yourself' has 10 questions, testing your knowledge of the unit you've just covered.
Click on the links to read interviews with people in the industry. Some of the interviewees are experts, others are recent school-leavers on their first job.
Play and interactive game. For example The Health Biz, a great activity where you can help people through the medical maze of the health services that they may need as they play the game of life!
