Education Minister Michelle McIlveen, has today announced an investment in GCSE Revision Guides to support pupils preparing for their examinations.
This is one element of a wide range of additional support which has been put in place to support pupils taking public examinations in summer 2022, which includes funding for Easter revision schemes and also the provision of GCSE Maths revision cards, lessons and practice questions.
Minister McIlveen said:
“I am pleased to announce the roll-out of these excellent GCSE revision resources.
“Investment of over £200,000 for eBooks will provide significant support materials to young people as they prepare for their examinations.”
All post-primary schools are able to purchase Revision eBooks across a wide range of subjects for their pupils undertaking GSCEs with The Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA).
Each school will be allocated funding, dependent on Year 12 pupil numbers, to spend on guides.
