The Revision Wizard is for when you want to practice on your own but would like some guidance. It analyses the questions you've answered in Educake and makes quizzes to help you improve on your weaknesses and make sure you don't forget what you've already learned.

First, you can choose whether you want to learn something new or revise what you've learned. You can also choose "I'm not sure" and the Revision Wizard will pick for you.

Learn something new

Learn something new quizzes are about topics you haven't done in Educake yet. You can choose which subject you want to learn about, or the Revision Wizard can choose for you.

If there's a study guide for the topic, you'll have the option to read the study guide and then take a quiz, or take a quiz straight away.


You can choose which subject you want to revise, or the Revision Wizard can choose for you. It will choose some questions you've got right already so you don't forget them, and some you haven't for a challenge.

Some quizzes are on a single topic

The Revision Wizard will choose a topic based on how long ago you've studied it. It will also make sure to give you practice on your weaker topics, but not too often.

If the topic has a study guide, you'll be able to read it first.

Some quizzes are a mix of topics

Mixed review quizzes take questions from all the topics you've studied in a subject. For example, a mixed review quiz might cover all of your previous Biology topics.

These quizzes are important for drawing links between related topics, and understanding the differences between similar topics.

If you already know what you want to quiz yourself on, you can also make your own quizzes. Click on the subject in the purple "Study and Quiz Yourself" section. Then click the "Quiz" button next to the topic or subject area you want a quiz on.
