All over the UK, students are using Educake to support their science learning (we also offer seven other subjects at secondary and core KS2 primary subjects). We’ve got millions of data points from all the science questions answered in the last couple of academic years.

We’ve built a national picture of science knowledge across biology, chemistry, physics and maths for science. Through this, we’ve been able to identify the most common learning gaps within each science unite across the boards at the national level.
