High-quality low-stakes testing for GCSE English
Educake is the easy way to set meaningful tasks that students will enjoy, with all the marking and analysis done for you.
We have thousands of questions, carefully written by English teachers for English teachers.
Set meaningful homework that’s marked and analysed for you
Nowadays it seems like there’s more content to cover than ever before. We know that English teachers face a constant struggle to set meaningful homework that students can complete independently. And there’s the burden of marking it all.
We’ve worked really hard with teachers to produce high-quality questions that increase students’ knowledge, cultural capital and skills, but can still be automatically marked and analysed.
Fully functional, unlimited students and teachers for 30 days with no obligation.
Educake uses high-quality extracts in its questions
Choose from hundreds of questions that develop core skills
Students can struggle to achieve higher grades at GCSE without core skills such as a broad vocabulary or a proper understanding of literary techniques
Educake has hundreds of questions written to develop these skills in students and because it only takes seconds to set a homework and they’re marked for you, students can work independently on these without increasing your workload.
Sample question on core skills - punctuation
Which of these sentences has the correct punctuation?
Normally, you would use an apostrophe to show posession, but in this case, the correct answer is “its”. “It’s” is always short for “it is”.

See your students’ strengths and weaknesses
Our clear test results page lets you identify your class’s problem areas and identify underperforming students, so you can focus on these areas next.
Educake has changed how I teach, based on what I found out from the tests. The misconceptions are often not what I think they are, so I can then change what to focus on.

Reduce your marking load
Educake has thousands of auto-marked questions for you to assign to your students. Each question is carefully written so it exactly matches the AQA GCSE English specification you teach - you can set targeted and differentiated homework in seconds.
Motivate your students
Students love the instant feedback that Educake gives them after every question. They love being able to set themselves tests. They love being able to do their homework on their phone. And you can use student league tables to motivate them even more.
I think Educake is amazing it really helps with my recent scores and it also gives us the answers when you get something wrong.
