Curious about Educake?

Take a look at our FAQs to see if your question has already been answered.

What is Educake?

Founded in 2011 and based in Oxford in the UK, Educake provides online homework and revision for many KS2, KS3 and GCSE subjects.

Educake has thousands of ready-to-go, subject-specific questions, designed to motivate independent learning and make homework more meaningful. They’re automatically marked, they accept spelling mistakes, and they’ve been written by our authors who are teachers and specialist subject editors. Some of the questions are multiple choice, but most of them require students to type out one to three word answers.

Educake also provides tools for analysis. You can quickly assess individual student understanding, compare class and national averages, and identify learning gaps. Armed with this data, teachers are able to spend more time honing their teaching approaches and focusing on what really matters.

What does Educake mean?

Educake is a play on the words ‘Educate’ and ‘cake’. This also refers to the cakes we send out to schools for various reasons, such as for booking a demo, winning a prize draw, or being a school that uses Educake frequently. We also send out chocolate weekly for #FreddoFriday!

Is Educake good for GCSE revision?

Educake is great for GCSE. It empowers students to learn independently; students can create their own quizzes and track their progress on different topics. Our adaptive learning algorithm generates personalised quizzes based on what students need help with, allowing for effective, straight-to-the-point revision. It’s also easy for teachers to track student progress and spot knowledge gaps before exam season. We offer English, science, maths, PE, geography, history, computer science and business at GCSE.

Does Educake do A level?

Is there an Educake app?

There is no app available for Educake at the moment. We are working on a replacement for the old Educake for Students apps that were previously available in the App Store and Google Play Store. Devices that already have the Educake for Students app installed can continue to use it.

Educake is accessible from a phone. Just search for Educake in your browser and log in as you would on the computer. Work can be set and completed on the go.
