Frequently Asked Questions

CoreSciences is aimed primarily at Key Stage 4 (GCSE) students and teachers of these students.
Schools, parents, and tutors can subscribe to CoreSciences.
We offer subscription packages for schools, parents and tutors. Each school user has access to the platform both from school and at home and individual parent and tutor users can also access the system from anywhere online.
A school subscription covers a school, its teachers and students (and their parents), to have relevant access to the service. A tutor subscription covers their students, and their students parents for relevant access and a parent subscription provides relevant access for parents and their children.
Whilst it is recommended that physical in-lab experiments should be carried out where resources allow, CoreSciences's user-friendly and accurate replication of the practicals, and unlimited access to all the required practical routines, can be considered a very effective and comprehensive substitute in the absence of the real experiments. They are especially effective as a familiarisation exercise prior to the real experiments, and equally useful as a revision tool, significantly improving overall practical performance and knowledge which is so hard to achieve in a single lab experiment or demonstration.
All required practicals have been designed to faithfully follow the detailed instructions laid out in the examining board manuals and as such include all the necessary steps and procedures involved to gain a thorough understanding of the practical. Unlike other lab simulation products CoreSciences has advanced statistical variance built in to prevent memorising of answers, so that each run of a practical requires the taking of new measurements, fresh data recording, and accurate user input every time, ensuring students are always developing their "working scientifically" practical skills.
CoreSciences includes all GCSE required practicals and their associated topics and the supporting theory required to teach and execute these. Additional topics will be added regularly. As a result of teacher feedback, priority will be given to those topics that teachers feel would be of most benefit to teachers and students.
Teachers can recoup significant amounts of time normally expended in lesson planning, student performance evaluation, and meeting preparation by using CoreSciences. All teaching resources for every practical are provided in one place readily available at any time without any lesson planning and resource gathering required. Student and class performances are constantly analysed over time and can be accessed on demand along with the generation of detailed progress reports for parents evenings and departmental meetings.
Our users feedback confirms that our uniquely designed fully interactive practical simulations significantly improve students' familiarity with the steps involved in the experimental procedures. This greatly enhances students' confidence and performance when carrying out the real experiments and help them achieve better results under test conditions. Similarly, data analytics and bespoke interventions identifying and focusing students on their weaknesses automatically help them to improve in areas that might otherwise not be flagged up.
Students' performances in tests and practicals are analysed down to sub-topic levels and by aptitude. From this strengths and weaknesses can be identified and fed back to teachers and parents alike. Interventions tailored to individual students' weaknesses provide reminders and direction on what students need to focus on most. Advanced configurations can provide progress reports by email, and notifications when tests are undertaken, completed, and whether scores are improving or not over time.
For a relatively small subscription cost CoreSciences provides a comprehensive and performance enhancing system for science teaching, learning and reinforcement both in school and at home. Saving teacher time on lesson planning and delivery and reducing the burden of having to conduct physical experiments for required practicals can help reduce costs. In addition during teacher absences science lessons and practicals can still be delivered (by any competent member of teaching staff) reducing the need for costly supply teachers.
CoreSciences covers all Required Practicals and associated theory for the Triple and Combined AQA GCSE syllabus specification. Edexcel, OCR, WJEC will follow but already have approximately 80% overlap with existing AQA content.
Currently all three sciences (Chemistry, Physics, Biology) are available as a complete Triple Science package. A Combined Science module is available either as a standalone subscription or included if you subscribe to the Triple Science package. Subscriptions are Tier 1 or Tier 2 to suit different budgets and depending on which features are required. See our subscriptions for more details.
You will receive an email prior to your subscription expiring and you will have the option to cancel the further subscription, or we will automatically renew the subscription for you.
CoreSciences is compatible with most devices and browsers on Windows, MAC, and iPad but we recommend using either Chrome or Edge for the best user experience. Printable items such as worksheets and reports may require access to a pdf viewer.
Once your application has been received and payment cleared, your administrator account will be created by our team and we will notify you when the creation of the account has been completed. Typically, this will be completed within one business day.
