Is the evidence biased? • Research by the independent educational charity Fischer Family Trust confirms that as little as ten task hours' use of SAM Learning can improve performance and attainment. The research was based on SAT and GCSE results of 396,812 pupils.
Where is the evidence? • The overall conclusions of these studies involving more than 360,000 students are as follows: • There is a positive relationship between the use of SAM Learning and exam/test results. • The greatest impact occurs when students experience 10 or more task hours using SAM Learning.

The Future: Bebo for Revision? I am a 16-year-old GCSE student, studying history, and, quite frankly, struggling. I’m predicted an A*, but I’m likely to get a C because I never had the motivation or means to revise well.Until now.I have come up with a free revision programme, targeted at AQA Specification B, but with aspects of all exam specifications, here on Bebo, because this is where I used to end up when I was supposed to be revising.
