‘Learning Gaps in GCSE Science – A National Picture’ has been put together using loads of data points that we’ve gathered on Educake during the past couple of years.

You’ll find information on notoriously tricky subjects that students have to contend with in GCSE Science. It covers topics from biology, chemistry, physics and mathematical science. I hope you’ll find it useful.

Whether you’ve been teaching for decades or are just getting started in your career (or somewhere in between), this guide provides handy insight on the most challenging topics. We’ve also considered learning gaps more generally, with examples of what can cause them. Potential issues around motivation, communication and environmental influences are all factors when addressing classroom progress.

We’ve highlighted the top three tricky topics in each subject and given you some sample questions.

If you want to review the full picture across GCSE Science, we’ve also included the complete results, collated from millions of student responses.

I hope you’ll agree that this is more than just a data dump. You’re getting up-to-date information on the national understanding of GCSE Science, an explanation of learning gaps, and ideas for how to tackle the challenges.

Thanks for reading and I hope you’ll share your feedback with me.
