    What if someone was to revise from Bitesize without anything (books, notes, peers, teachers e.g.) what grade would they most likely achieve?

    Note: I'm not actually doing this, I'm just curious.

    Bitesize is useful but its very generic in my opinion and its hard to know what you personally need to know.

    I agree with the above. It's a good resource for Science, because it can explain harder concepts really fast and quick (good for revision and revision cards etc.)

    But, thats just it - they explain things really fast, just 'glossing over' concepts you need to know more about.
    I used it to revise for the Inspector Calls + Of Mice and Men previously and achieved an A* so it's certainly good in some regards.

    Best idea is probably to just get the revision guides for the subject imo.

    Personally the highest I would get with Bitesize is D/C. It has no detail, and to get A/A* you need to do past papers.

    Bitesize has some incorrect information, in some areas, with too little detail where needed. I prefer using the exam board approved textbooks with some online videos.

    one of the earliest exams I took I revised purely from bitesize a couple of days before and got full UMS lol
    But that's probably because the teacher was excellent and I just needed to go over things to consolidate them in my head
    Thing is you'd need to know the specifics of your course
