Quizzes for GCSE English

Are you looking for some good quizzes for GCSE English? Over on our sibling site, Pass GCSE English, you can find many a good reason why giving learners quizzes in the classroom is a good idea – even if the terminal exam doesn’t have any! A quiz can do a lot more than just ask for answers – it can be the trigger for a whole lot more.

So, whether it’s structure, language, writers’ perspective or synthesis, there are quizzes that can be made – and this site is the gateway to a VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) that allows learners working towards GCSE English to do loads of quizzes. Loads and loads and loads!

Here’s the first two paragraphs from the article: When a student walks into that big scary hall to take their GCSE English exam, they won’t have to do a single quiz – unless you count the “true or false” element of Paper 2 which is worth a measly four marks out of the 160 up for grabs across both exams. So, why on earth use quizzes as a teaching and learning tool in preparation for this incredibly important exam?

That’s a good question – and a simple one too. My very simple answer would be “because they’re fun” and generally that’s where I would like the questioning to end. I’ve never seen anything engage students more than a good quiz, especially on a platform like Kahoot.
