    Has anyone used uplearn or know about it? I saw it on here and decided to take a look, I like the a/a* guarantee but I was wondering if anyone would be able to give me some insight on it before I spend all that money on it?

      I got to test it last year for theme 1 and I regularly talk to the team that run it, theyre great people and the site is amazing. It makes everything so simple and ensures you understand it all. They offer a free trial and the progress tracker is excellent. I was actually going to make a purchase tonight for Up core and Up master for micro and macro. Remember that to get the A*/A guarantee you have to put it in the time and effort or else they won't refund it. But from using it last year and having used the free trial, I can say it's excellent and money well spent.

      Okay thank you! I didn't realise there was a free trial. I'm waiting for them to put up the aqa economics but when they do I'll definitely get it. Thanks

      I've always been a high achiever, but in GCSE Biology and Chemisty, I got a C instead of my predicted A. I needed these two subjects for my A-Levels. In Year 12, my grades got back up to As, but immediately dropped at exam season to Cs- I had not idea what was going wrong. So at the beginning of Year 13, I decided to start UpLearn. Can I just say - it was the best decision I ever made. My teachers had always predicted me As and A*s, but UpLearn helped reinforce that back into me! I'm now starting my second year at Oxford University with a medicine degree, and I do not think I could have got there without UpLearn! Highly recommended!

      Did you use uplearn solely for you a level revision. Im thinking about getting up learn. I've just started my as levels. do you think it's good at retaining , memorising and learning information. It's just i could use anki instead which uses space repetition which they apparently use in uplearn) so how much better is uplearn to anki in terms of retaining and reinforcing info for exam.

      I've had a proper look through everything and it's guaranteed to get you an A*/A with only uplearn in any of the subjects as long as you put in th amount of hours you need to using the website (as they will surely guide you in how many that is) you choose so yeah you can but over the summer they couldn't hire good enough teachers so they're courses are going to be taking a while to upload and then you can purchase them some of them are available from march 2018 (one of the tutors told me I can still get an A* starting using it from then and then doing my exams official exams in 2019 summer) and some courses won't be available till 2018 September (again, one of the tutors told me I can still get an A* starting using it from then and then doing my exams official exams in 2019 summer) they are also going to add new courses too. This is exactly what they've put up on they're website:

      We put a lot of time and effort into getting our courses absolutely right for every student. It's not our style to release anything that's less than the absolute highest quality, and able to get any student from any grade up to an A*. We've succeeded at doing this with our Economics course, but we've had some problems expanding to other subjects. Over the summer we hired teachers and tutors that ended up not being good enough. Despite teaching at the top schools in the country, or having the highest rated tutors in the UK - they still weren't good enough. Fortunately, we are now finally finding the right world-class people to expand Up Learn to more subjects and exam boards, and are investing a lot in convincing them to join us and help make Up Learn the best learning experience in the world for our students. What this means is that everything is taking longer than we thought, but we will still be launching many more subjects later this school year - with more than enough time to use them to get an A* in your exams. Some subjects, however, have been delayed until September 2018. Our mission is to provide the world's most effective learning experience and our focus is and always will be helping as many students as possible get the best results in the most efficient way

      If ur doing sciences,geography, maths, English Lit or History I suggest for the time being you visiti this site:
      www.snaprevise.co.uk
      They're videos are tailored to a all major 2015 specs (Edexcel,OCR,AQA) and AS is like 30 pounds and so is A2 you get access to AS for two years and A2 for 2 years once you purchase it. The people teaching are all oxbrige / Edinburgh / Durham Students and they write the notes for all the subjects too and you can get access to these once you purchase the course.
