SAM Learning has activities in over 27 subjects available and over 70,000 questions. We upload new activities every month to help students revise and prepare for their upcoming exams.
To access all our exam-style activities, simply select ‘Activities’ and tick the ‘Exam Paper’ filter in the top right corner. Once the filter has been applied, select ‘GCSE’ to access all exam papers for this key stage. You can then navigate to your exam board to find relevant activities. The subject folders that appear will only contain exam papers. If you wish to attempt other types of activity, clear the filter.
SAM Learning has been busy making final preparations for the GDPR coming into force on 25 May 2018.
All marketing contacts have been sent an opt-in email, inviting them to remain on our database and continue to receive SAM Learning news, updates and offers.
We have received some great feedback from schools about the clarity of our Legal Compliance Documentation. A hard copy has been posted to every SAM Learning subscriber. It is also available on our website and on request from Customer Support.
Our company approach to GDPR is to operate to the very highest of standards and to adopt and maintain a best-practice methodology.
