Science surgery - Online tests / quizzes for GCSE science

Key Knowledge tests

Auto-marked questions for every piece of Key Knowledge in order to assess whether students can recall that piece of Knowledge for Science GCSE’s and KS3.

Science surgery - Track and analyse exam results by subject, topioc or subtopic

Results Grid

Upload assessment/exam results taken in class so that the data is stored against our content tree, enabling you to track progress over the years and clearly identify gaps in student’s learning.  Then via science surgery’s personalised intervention tasks and in-class work close these gaps.

Science surgery - GCSE tracking and reporting of progress


There are a variety of different reports available. Analyse each task or progress over time by year group, class or individual student. For example, see their strengths and weaknesses against our science content tree which you can drill down from subject level down to topics and into subtopics. Enabling you to see where intervention is required.

Retrieval App

This incorporates some of the key educational research into the cognitive science as to the most effective methods for students to learn. We Science surgery is developed using powerful retrieval, interleaving and spaced-learning software that adapts to each student to provide a personalised learning experience.

  • Retrieval based practice
  • Spaced learning
  • Varying practice and support

Key Knowledge flash cards – We have broken down the syllabus into manageable, bitesize flash-cards to help students learn the content.

The aim of this is to support students learning but also to try and free up teachers time in class allowing more time for ‘deeper’ learning and application of knowledge rather than ploughing through the vast content present in the new science GCSE.
With one click, teachers and students can set a variety of intervention tasks. Our clever system will automatically pulls out areas for development which is personalised for each student. This is a powerful tool for interleaving (spaced learning).
Our site will enable you to analyse your department’s areas of strengths & areas for development.

You can analyse by year group, class or individual student how they are getting on with a variety of different options. For example, see how long students are spending on homework, see their strengths and weaknesses and drill down from subject level down to topics and even subtopics to really enable you to see where intervention is required.

You could use this to decide which topics to use for interleaving.

You can track students’ progress year on year, so for example from year 9 all the way through to year 11. This enables you to build up a really detailed and robust, diagnostic picture.
Key Knowledge Tests: We have created over 1,000 multiple choice questions to test every piece of Key Knowledge.

As students’ progress through the curriculum these will help you build up a picture as to the strengths and weaknesses. These can be drilled down form year group level right down to a specific student.

All of these questions are marked automatically and provide students with the solutions if they do go wrong so that they can see where they are going wrong.

Practice calculation questions: We have over 700 practice calculation questions linking to virtually all specification points. Each question is auto-marked and provides students with worked answers if they get it wrong. In some cases it will even tell students where they went wrong and what they should have done to gain full marks.
Students can enter exam results taken in class, enabling you to track & analysis their results topic by topic, question by question.

Create a template by assigning questions in the exam to areas of our content tree in order to track the progress of your students.

From this you can create your own invention tasks and let our system assign these to each student based upon the results they entered, and all at the click of a button.

Track the results from exams from year 9 and by the time they are in year 11 you will know exactly where their strengths and weaknesses lie, empowering you to make effective intervention.
