Hi there! I wouldn't recommend Seneca for every subject but Seneca in my opinion is the MVP for Science. I did a mock in the beginning of 2018( Higher Tier Paper 1) if I can recall correctly and I didn't do so well. I got 24%, but a-lot of people didn't do so well in the mock as well which is why I wasn't moved down to Foundation. However when I had stumbled upon Seneca, science revision was made so easy. A good amount of information was provided and I could learn at a fast pace. I did a recent science mock (Higher again) and I got 73%. All from using Seneca. I did also use test papers but that was it. I only use Seneca for Science, History and RE.

I just recently started using Seneca and I originally told myself I would just use it as support but for the subjects they have it available for, I'm using as my main source of revision! Not sure if it's the right choice yet or not - only time will tell - but I am going through content a lot faster and I think it's really beneficial.
Got a rep on this recently and realised it would be helpful to see how I got on - I ended up with 12 A*s and 2 As (7 9s, an 8, 2 7s, 3 A*s and an A^) and I would have to say that Seneca helped me massively, particularly for the sciences, history and RS! I would totally recommend it and I'm still using it for my A Levels now.

Well now they have paid extra benefits and the top one is money back guarantee on getting 7-9 GCSE, so they're confident that, if you put enough time and effort into revising from the textbook, you can achieve those grades, that if you don't they will give you back the money you paid for it.Obviously that would make you think that without that it is not as easy to get but I'm sure if you revised a lot from it you could get a 7, however you can't be certain and I would recommend using other revision too. In my opinion, seneca is best for science's as it is a very set mark scheme, whereas subjects such as English and Humanities and Languages it is probably not as useful due to them being more thorough and interpretive (especially English literature, however there are some basic useful aspects on there). I would recommend using seneca more for some subjects than others and as a way to grasp a basic understanding on the subject. So for me I use it for for science's mostly because I struggle with general understanding of them. And I find it useful for subjects you struggle with most/ need help with more simple understanding.

The website is great. However for the sciences I was very optimistic that this could be my main source of revision however it has not gone down well. They say it covers all of the specification but many points are missing and sometimes they repeat the same question quite a few times.
They also say made by examiners however they copy a lot of things from the internet, especially for English. They have copied a lot analysis from Mr bruff.
Overall, this website is good for consolidating your learning and making sure you know the main points but keep in mind it doesn't cover everything. Hope this helps!
I agree, especially with the English. I think for that it isn't the most affective form of revision, for instance with English Literature it is more effective to try and create your own ideas, when analysing text as examiners are looking for original ideas and are more likely to give you a higher grade if yours stands out rather than having the same points as everyone else (by using seneca for main revision in that you could end up with very similar almost identical essays to everyone who does the same)

Feedback button every time you spot a mistake. It is in the bottom left hand corner of the card you read.

Seneca Learning has got quite a few mistakes in the AQA Religious Studies A - related to Catholicism - how can I contact them to correct them?

i have been using seneca previously in the year for computer science
its quite interactive and simple user friendly layout so dosent rlly put that much stress on u
but i dont think it covers full contents and its basic at sometimes
maths is really hard for me to revise on there
its too much to learn and seneca dosent cover everything

Seneca's really good, but it doesn't go into a lot of detail it tends to be a bit too brief, it may have been useful if I'd been using it throughout the course but not when my teachers only introduced it and set up classes like 2 weeks ago, when we only had like 5 weeks till GCSE's! Also sometimes it takes a while to get through one topic so its not particularly useful if your trying to get as much revision done as possible!
