GCSEPod is a revision tool for students studying for their GCSE examinations; the service provides high quality, focused learning in ‘Pod’ format across 20 popular GCSE subjects, and filtered by exam boards. We are delighted to announce that GCSEPod is now available at The Sele School.  

This award-winning service will give your child access to thousands of hours of professionally produced, audio-visual content which will benefit them throughout the coming year. GCSEPod has over 4,000 teacher-written, audio-visual pods which have been produced specifically for learning, homework and revision.

The Pods contain all the right facts, quotes, keywords, dates and annotated diagrams that your child needs for GCSE success. Students won’t need to use GCSEPod for long to see the impact; in fact, consistent use of just 10 minute chunks is proven to support achievement whatever your child’s target grade.

The GCSEPod website can be viewed on mobiles, tablets and PCs and Pods can be downloaded for offline viewing. The Pods are mapped to the curriculum and students can access pre-set exam playlists which collate all the Pods relevant to a specific exam into a neatly organised list.  

Once your child has activated their account they can browse the Pod library and create their own playlists – just as they would when they’re listening to music. We recommend that you discuss GCSEPod with your son or daughter to ensure that they have successfully activated their accounts and encourage them to make use of this service throughout their GCSEs.

All students have already been registered with GCSEPod and simply need to activate their account and choose a username and password.  To access GCSEPod for the first time, students should follow these simple steps:

  • Go to gcsepod.com and click 'Login' in the top right hand corner
  • Click 'New here?  Get started'
  • Select 'Pupil'
  • Enter your child’s name, date of birth and type in the name of their school. Your school should appear in a drop-down list. Click on the school in this list to confirm it.
  • Select a username, password, and a password hint to help you remember the password. We recommend that you should use your school login so that it is easy to remember.

Once logged in, students can search for Pods either by keyword, a specific exam or subject area. Each Pod is designed to squeeze exactly the right knowledge students will need for exam success into short 3-5 minute chunks.
