Doesn't allow us to be distracted to see social media or messages before I go onto adapt!
Good idea! This would be a big undertaking for us, but if we get enough requests we'll seriously consider it.
Please give the option to recommend and allocate tasks randomly or in the order the specification delivers the subject. Thank you.
Great idea! This would be really nice to have in Settings- I'll pass it along to the team.
Can we get a dark mode option
This would honestly make such a difference to my work to have it on my computer - absolutely love what you’re doing 😊
It is something we would love to do in the next academic year but it won't be function this academic year!
It may be helpful to be able to tell the app how many subjects you would like to study in a day as it seems to be putting a lot over one day
The number of topics you see each day is determined by our algorithm, which plans the number of topics you need to cover each day in order to cover everything by exam date (or your plan end date, if you've changed it). You can see your daily breakdown in the Progress section.
If you feel like you're getting too many topics to cover each day, you could consider adding additional days you want to revise to your week, or going through the topics list in the Subjects section and marking your confidence for some as "very confident" so our algorithm knows you don't need to cover them. This should reduce the amount of topics you are getting over the day.
I hope this helps!
Having a notification to remind people to do their homework and revision so they don’t forget to do a little bit of daily revision.
Currently you can manually set notifications for anything you have added to your plan (ie. to remind you to complete a piece of homework that is due the next day that you added to your timetable). But in terms of general notifications, that isn't yet a feature. I hope this helps!
I think it would be very beneficial if when you press a revision session, there are links related to that topic/subject.
We would love to have partnerships with revision websites, and this depends on the size of our user database, but it is definitely something we are looking to have in the future!
Can you please add the IGCSE Cambridge exams. I am doing Computer Science and Economics with this exam board and I cannot find them.
Where you can add homework or tasks, put an option to add tests as well please.
Adding tests is coming very soon! It's the next thing William (our engineer) will be building.
Using the time table feature ask what topics you covered in each lesson in that day adding them to the topics that you have covered.
Rather then tapping one day then tapping out we can slide to the next day just to save time
It would be really good if the app connected to firefly or show my homework. Then your homework could be automatically put into the app.
This could be used to help us with our time by dividing tasks, projects, homework and revision into small, manageable 25 minute chunks, with short breaks in between. I hope this isnt too undertaking, but any sort of focus timer would be so useful in this app. Thank you!
I really like adapt but I don't actually own a smart phone- I've set up an account on a family member's iPod touch. It would be great if we could use adapt on a computer with a web app or something on the windows store.
Currently the Adapt app on iPad will open vertically in a phone shaped size. It would be great for it to open fully on the iPad as utilise the full screen.
5,175 schools worldwide offer the IB diploma, 112 of which are in the UK. The IB is a program which attracts hardworking students who (I can tell you from personal experience!) would benefit greatly from the help of adapt. (FYI, the IB is an international A-levels alternative for which you study six subjects across two years)
Yes, we're working on adding IB next! We've been adding boards in the order of popularity in the UK, and IB is the next one on that list.
I also did IB so I know how difficult it is. I hope we can support your subjects soon, and good luck with your revision in the meantime! 😊
it’s a really small thing, but i think it may be good to be able to remove confidence ratings. if i accidentally put a rating on the wrong topic or choose the wrong face then i’m can’t undo it, which messes up how many things i’ve completed and makes it difficult for me to see exactly how well i’m doing.
At the moment you are able to edit and override a confidence rating by going into that specific topic and holding down on that confidence rating but as of yet you cannot delete a confidence rating. But we will look into that as a future feature!
Putting a start date to revise as we may not want to start revising the next week
an option to type in a friends number code (given by the app) to be able to track their revision and calendar and to be able to study the same subjects together
Making it so we can add our test scores and it shows us what subjects we need to focus on dependent on our performance, and so maybe it suggests some subjects more than others.
To add- also a way to input performance on certain topics on the test too - like if we did great on one topic but desperately need revision on another that came up, if this does become a feature. 🥰
I'm not sure if this is too tall a task but it'd be super cool if we could sync show my homework accounts to the app so our homework would show up there. Or if we could sync it to actually calendar apps!
Please can you add an option to select how many times you can revise each topic of a subject.
the btec grades range from pass to distinction*, not just distinction. the words also don’t fit well into the boxes assigned for the grades, so maybe it would be better to use letters instead (P, M, D, D*), as they are commonly written this way.
Thank you for letting us know! Your suggestion is brilliant- we'll change the grading system to P, M, D, D* ASAP!
So far I can’t find a way of picking recommended tasks on the same day as it is currently and instead have to go through all of the tasks to find something suitable. Please make it so that we can choose tasks the same day as doing them from recommendied. Thanks in advance
Being able to import homework and other information from Google Classroom would be nice to have.
I was just wondering if a widget/widgets could be incorporated into the app, so that we can quickly and easily access useful information for the day. E.g: the classes we have that day/upcoming tests/upcoming tasks/the next topics we need to revise etc. I hope this isn't to undertaking or difficult to implement but I think it would be a very useful feature. Thanks so much :)
it would be so much better if you could choose in the availability section to revise more on one day than another. So you still do revision on that day, ( for example weekdays ) but you do more revision on the days of the persons choosing ( for me - I would do more revision on a weekend ) . Instead of no revision weekdays, it could be less revision weekdays, as personally I seem to get a lot of revision Monday and Thursday, and little on a weekend, I would rather it be the other way around.
Add an option to enter activities you do so you can work around them
If I haven’t covered the topic yet I remove it from my plan but then it gives me more time to do the topics I have done which isn’t realistic. E.g if I had a year to do 4 topics (unrealistic example I know!) but I hadn’t learn one yet the algorithm thinks I have a year to do 3 topics. So then I am doing them at a rate of 1topic/4months but then say after 4months I have learnt the last topic so then it is 3 per 8months which is a faster rate so there is less time per topic. I hope I have tried to make this clearer. Maybe to fix this have an option to prioritise topics so the algorithm works but won’t assign things you haven’t learnt. Sorry for the confusing explanation and thank you!!
Introduce a live exam countdown
I have a few exams for subjects in may but it isn't scheduled on my calendar for example my Unit 1 exam in digital technology. It would be nice to be able to add custom exam dates that display like the currently projected exams for 2021.
Hi, at the moment the topics for a level history (AQA) aren’t split up small enough at all, For example, revising the whole of Henry VII in one revision session is impossible. It would be much more useful if each subtopic at the moment was split up into 4 or 5 more subtopics so they can be revised in the amount of time suggested, The large nature of the subtopics also means taht I barely get history coming up on the timetable which isn’t useful!
It would be great if we could get an .ical file or something to let us put adapt's calendar onto our gmail calendars or other providers- this would allow them to be used on a computer too.
Is it possible that we can add our own subjects and that I can plan by my self?
I don’t like all the dots, because it looks like I need to do a lot of things everyday. And because I am from the Netherlands, I can’t choose subjects, so I can’t plan my tests..
Is there a desktop app that I can download that syncs with the timetable on my phone? If not, can one be made? :D
Please can the J276 OCR GCSE course be added please
I assume you are referring to the OCR GCSE computing science course, that is already on the app and you can add it in the subject section. I hope that helps!
If we have tests the app should change revision subject recommendations best suited for acing the test
Would be kewl if we can make tasks that run into following days if we don't check it off or complete it the previous day, without necessarily having to make a homework or something.
My school uses a three-week timetable, but I can only select either weekly or fortnightly timetables.
I study WJEC GCSE English language and the topics listed on adapt don't seem to correspond with BBC Bitesize (which is what I use for revision) so maybe it would be worthwhile to introduce a feature with recommended revision sites
It would be amazing if you could colour tasks (currently they're all black). It would be a simple but really nice addition to the app.
It would also be really nice if you could move, copy and paste tasks too. It would make editing and adjusting the calendar much easier.
an option to have a notification is sent to your phone regarding what task/homework you should be doing based on the time that you have previously set it to be done
At the moment the Further Maths GCSE grade system is 9-1. It actually gives a grade from A-E with no A*s. It would be great if this could be changed, but otherwise its fine to use the numbers.
In a level English literature aqa there is also a module that studies THE KITE RUNNER please can you add that?
So each time I have to go afk the timetable disappears. This is really frustrating as I have a two week timetable so I have to fill out each lesson one by one.
I tried to add my gcse subject product design aqa but it was only available for a levels
it would be great if it was a little more obvious what days I have a test for, currently it is merged together with your daily tasks and it'd be useful if the days were marked in a different colour or in a box or something like that :)
Homework Tracker where you can log the day it’s set, the day you’ll do it and the day you need to hand it in. You can also collect rewards the more homework you do or the more efficiently you complete it. Will recommend the app to school!
At the moment, when you add a task it is displayed as blank on the calendar. I was thinking it would look good to change the colour of our tasks, maybe assign them to a subject and then it would change that colour? And for tasks not related to a subject, have a colour for them or be able to choose one?
For the A-level history, the topics are structured in terms of chapter 1, 2, 3 etc, but it would be impossible to go through one chapter in one day, so it would be great if each chapter was broken down into further subtopics, making it more manageable.
Hi I know you guys already able to put a timetable on the app but it takes a very long time to do it but there be any other way that he will be able to do it quicker so people don’t spend like an hour and a 2:30 hours tops trying to put a timetable onto the app
Please can you make it clear that the Eduqas Geography on your system isn't the one studied by English schools
It'd be really nice, instead of having multiple subjects suggested for one day , to have one subject and multiple topics to be reccomended within that subject :)
Hi, for the OCR GCSE Drama subjects (I don’t know about the other Drama courses) there isn’t anything about a set text you have to read/revise for the written exam. I think there are a few plays that you can do so having these specific subjects or just having a basic plan that would fit any play would be really useful. (E.g. Characters, Plot, Author’s Intention, Major themes etc.) Thank you!
The revision topics for a level aqa history are far too big to revise! I each topic at the moment would take about 3/4 revision sessions to cover! Please break them up into the sections on the specification!!
The ability to edit tasks we have set instead of having to delete it and rewrite. And the ability to move tasks from day to day if we don’t complete it that day or something comes up that we cannot complete it and need to reschedule it in for another day. This would be very helpful!
Thanks for this app, its very useful.
Ive noticed that the OCR A level geography 'category' only has ~4 sections per topic, being a lot less in depth than other subjects. Is there anyway of adding to it/ changing it. I am happy to adjust it to include all points from the spec if there was a way for me to do so.
Thanks a lot.
Can you please add Cambridge IGCSE subjects like Mathematics 0580 ,Accounting 0452
Having to rate a topic confidently multiple times before it is cleared or having to do small quick revision sessions afterwards - maybe a quick mini quiz. After you have revised something you need to do it more than once to remember it so maybe add mini ratings.
At the moment that is not a feature but we will be continually working on this and hopefully this will be a feature we can add into our settings!
This would involve a setting where you would be able to customise how many times you could mark something with a confident rating before it is marked as completed.
I’m in the middle of year 10, so I don’t want to revise a topic, mark it as ‘done’, and then forget about it by the exams. I’d find it really useful if each topic had a number next to it, reflecting how many times Adapt will suggest it to me before the end of my GCSEs - this could change depending on the ‘revision’ settings, such as how many days a week I want to revise. It would allow me to sensibly plan how much I want to revise each day :)
For GCSE English Language WJEC the list of topics don't appear to match the topics on revision sites I use like BBC Bitesize so maybe introducing a feature recommending revision sites would be worthwhile
When you've completed homework, revision or a task, you put in how long it took you to do it or how long you spent on it. On your completed tasks list, it can show how long it took you to do it so you can track how long you've been doing work !
Add new subjects like Mathematics (0580), Accounting0480
In an enrichment day session, we were told that spaced repetition is a perfect way to consolidate knowledge from revision, and so maybe if Adapt could add this function as a review function based on the same system that memrise uses?? so that revision is effective when using the app. and please make this function free.
Bringing back the daily breakdown. This option took a lot of stress out from creating a timetable because it told you how many topics you had to do in order to meet the deadline. Eg. Economics 3 topics a day, Chemistry 1 topic a fortnight.
This feature told us how much time roughly we should spend on each topic it prevented us from over doing one subject and it also acted as a motivator.
It would be cool if this app provided text book information from the subjects, to be able to revise .
Hi, if there’s any way you could add FSMQ (Level 3 qualification) additional maths, exam board OCR, to your list of subjects, that would be brilliant. Thank you in advance.
Not a requirement but a suggestion that the app could be used on an iPad as currently you have to extend it etc and it’s not very practical. I’m just thinking for some who have all their work on a tablet etc and like to plan from that and keep it all on one device. If not possible then maybe a desktop version which has already been suggested.
I hope that not only can I add the few subjects are listed in ‘search’ but also the various and uncommon subjects I take in university. This way I can better refer to them in my planner. Thank you.
We have an online VLE that teachers set homework on, is it possible to import homework set there onto adapt? The VLE is called insight.
Bringing back the Daily Breakdown
This personally is my favourite feature because it lets me know how many topics a day I need to do to reach my exam due date.
By charging a small initial download fee on the app store you'd be able to invest a lot more in it. This is such an incredible app that I was so surprised it was free after I began using it - I just wanted to donate money of some sort to say thank you. It's completely worth paying for.
Being able to import your school calendars into the app would be amazing. I found putting in every subject super time consuming and I had to change the times a lot because the algorithm couldn’t interpret the 5 min lesson changeover times my school has.
Please add a level economics B for edexcel
Add in more WJEC subjects to improve on exam dates and subject modules to revise!
I haven’t noticed advanced higher English as a subject you can choose
I think it would be much better if you could add tasks (the black ones that you write out yourself) and attach them to subjects, so your adapt planner can display what exactly you'll be doing. I've found issues with not being able to do this and I'm sure others would find it just as useful as I would.
please could you make it possible to set a different number of topics for each day. so on Monday the number of topics the algorithm suggests you do is different to on Sunday for example
Daily motivational or study related quite and top to try
Please put the exams like edexcel algebra etc. They can be taken at any point but are hard I took level 2 in year 9 and had huge issues covering the topics but adapt would really help.
Being able to change subject colours. I have my own colours for my subjects and it’s kinda annoying to not have it match.
the daily tasks are great and being able to change how many you do is good but I wish I could change the date due for the end of the topic tasks to be finished by a certain date because having to finish the last daily tasks one night before the exam is not ideal. so maybe could you add a feature where you can choose a date to finish all topic by. instead of it automatically finishing one day before the exam. would make it easier.
On the iPhone if you go to your notification centre and then swipe right you can see all your widgets. I have widgets for my normal calendar and it’s really useful to be able to see what I need to do next/ what I have coming up next without unlocking my phone.
Be able to add more than one exam under a subject
e.g. Paper/Exam 1 for Maths, Paper/Exam 2 for maths etc.
This currently isn't a function, we are looking to update this soon!
I am in yr 13 so don’t have AS exams but they are still showing up on my timetable as exams
Yes! We're aware of this and working on fixing it ASAP :)
There is only one of my exams showing up on the calendar
We are missing some of the exam dates, so you will only be seeing the exam we have the date for. But we are making this our priority and you will hopefully see all of your exams soon!
on the ‘To Do’ menu, when i click to add a task (NOT homework) the app crashes.
This has been fixed now! Upgrade to the most recent version of the app :)
When I click done to add a homework, the homework doesn’t appear on my timetable
Hmm, that's really odd. With Homework, you need to fill in all fields (name, due date, attach a subject, etc.). If it's still not appearing try 1) uninstalling and reinstalling the app, and 2) upgrading to the most recent version in TestFlight).
I just downloaded the app and I’m super excited to use it! However, I can’t, because I am in university and I can’t make my own subjects and what specific topics my university teaches, which made me feel extremely sad.... Am I using the app wrong?
Currently Adapt is only supporting GCSE and A-Levels or the equivalent qualifications, but we would love to expand to University topics in the future!
When I try to import a task to add to my daily to do from subjects it crashes as soon as I try to select a subject. It happens with every subject - the screen goes blue then the app closes. Thank you very much.
Ah yes we're aware of this! It's unfortunately an issue with the most recent update. It'll be fixed ASAP, but in the meantime you can downgrade to a previous version (in Testflight) to fix it temporarily :P)
For History OCR A-Level, the module ‘Russia and it’s Rulers 1855-1964’ (unit group 3 thematic study and historical interpretations) is not available as an option. Could you please add this into the list of modules. Thank you :)
whenever i click on gcse astronomy in the subjects menu, the app crashes.
All crashes associated with Subjects should have been fixed now. Upgrade your app to the most recent version!
There’s no year 2 topics/modules for btec level 3 applied science. Would love for there to have year 2 topics or the option to add topics if they don’t exist already
Thank you for letting us know! I'll pass this on to our content team and they'll get it sorted ASAP.
There are some issues over both dates and topics within A-Level History OCR. One example is the exam date, for example is that the Unit Group 3 (Thematic Study and Historical Interpretations) is scheduled to be on the 19th June, when the actual date is on the 19th May. Another example is that the same unit is missing certain select topics such as Russia and its Rulers 1855-1964. Please can you fix this?
Whenever I try to add a homework task and attach a subject to it the app crashes. I have tried deleting the app and redone loading it and logging out and logging back in but it still won’t work
Could you please add CIE IGCSE subjects as the options as well. I’m not able to use the app at the moment because all my subjects are CIE IGCSE
CIE recently changed their name to CAIE, and we have those subjects listed, I think these are what you are looking for!
I can't seem to see the daily breakdown section? I've looked in the progress section but it doesn't appear to be there...
I don’t know if this is an issue with other subjects, but for the a level biology edexcel it splits into edexcel a and b but beyond that it isn’t divided into topics.
Thanks for letting us know! The team will look into the content for the edexcel a and b A-Level Biology :)
I couldn’t find the novel or the poetry anthology we are studying in the course options section. We are doing Nineteen Eighty-Four and songs of ourselves volume 1 part 3.
When trying to add a subject to the relevant homework the app crashes, tried on my phone and tablet so I know its not just my phone being odd. I can have homework but just can't attach subjects to them. Great otherwise!!
On my revision timetable, the WJEC English Lit and Edexcel History aren’t showing up. Also, I can’t see the individual topics for these subjects
You mean when you open them in Subjects there aren't any topics? Have you added your books for English Lit and your options for History? You won't see anything in your timetable until you add those (so we know what to plan for you!)
Open those subjects in the Subjects tab and tap "Edit" in the top right hand corner of each. You can then add the books/options you're taking, and they'll be automatically planned into your timetable.
I type the name of my a level subjects into the search bar and it comes up with no results.
i just installed the app and can't write my email. it immediately crashes
I am not too sure but I think when you create a homework task for example, and set a time to be alerted at, I am not receiving any alerts or reminders. Is this supposed to happen? Thanks so much :)
Hello. The information you have for Eduqas media studies A Level is incorrect, as are the exam dates. You have mixed the course content up with WJEC. This has really confused my students who are panicked that they haven't been taught the correct content. Please can you amend this information as soon as possible.
when i click on select a subject in add a school test, my app crashes
As a year 13 student I would the the timetable to take my revision up to the alevel exam not AS exam can you please remove these for A level students or allow us to remove them ourselves
There’s a lot of sub topics missing from aqa a level law, having all the subtopics on there would be helpful
I selected the incorrect exam board for one of my subjects, so I added the new one and deselected all the associated information but I'd still really like to delete the old one!
If I try to add geography edexcel to my subject list, the app completely crashes and doesn't add the subject.
This app is missing the SQA Nat 5 Latin, it only has the GCSE Latin. While the content is very similar they are still different, so it’d be great if you could add this!
I selected the incorrect exam board for one of my subjects, so I added the new one and deselected all the associated information but I'd still really like to delete the old one!
I couldn't find the Economics Edexcel B course on the calendar which and the AQA politics course covered knowledge but no exam writing technique tips also.
when I try to import tasks from subject the app stops then takes me back to my homepage, please help, thanks
I'm currently trying to set up an account, but even when the details are filled in, the app won't let me. I've not got a code to enter, is that the issue?
The second half of the topics are slightly wrong and are missing quite a few
The topics seem to match the summary points in order off the a level ocr a biology specification, which the first half of the topics match up until ‘transport in animals’ where afterwards it’s missing ‘transport in plants’ and multiple other topics along with topics that have been split or combined
Maths caie (not additional mathematics) should be added along side ICT caie. Also please correct the dates for this years exams as they are not correct in some places e.g geography. Also please put caie english first language exams on there to
the app has the date for the edexcel gcse spanish writing exam as the 20th June 2020 but it’s the 3rd June 2020
It won’t let me add my third subject of business studies A Level CCEA
On the Android App I cannot enter my predicted and target grade. After clicking Edit.
For AQA GCSE English Lit (namely the Macbeth module) some of the topics have disappeared. I remember that there used to be topics for every single scene, but now there’s just Act 1 Scene 1. There were also topics for every major theme, but they’re gone too. I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling the app, but to no avail :(
when i try and add a homework onto my task list, the app crashes as soon as i press done or even halfway through choosing due dates. it’s happened every single time and the app closes :( my app is fully updated so i’m not sure what’s wrong
The Lord of the Flies module for GCSE English Lit (AQA) used to have topics for each contextual factor. Now they all just say “Lord of the Flies: context”. Also, there’s a topic for LOTF that just says “Rezia Smith”. I think she’s a character in an entirely different book? :)
Everyday I do the revision I have scheduled. Yet a select few keep being added to the next day and it proves to not help me with revising the things I find even more difficult.
In GCSE Eduqas History, modules have been repeated. Left a review on the App Store.
Some of the topics are missing for AQA A-Level Law such as tort paper topics and some human rights elements. It may be worth looking at the specification to see which paper the topics go in
I cant see a live exam countdown
I am trying to add tests or mock exams to adapt but it does not allow me to do so. Please help.
I am in year 10 so my exams aren’t until next (calendar and academic) year but it keeps saying I have them this year. How do I change it? My plan end dates are set correctly but I can’t edit the exam ones. Thank you in advance :)
When is the app coming in the App Store?
January! We don't have an exact date yet (as it'll depend on when Apple approves the app) but everyone who signed up to the waitlist and/or got access to the Beta will be notified the minute it's released.
I have downloaded the app yesterday. I really liked everything except from one thing. I am doing the alevels but I am not doing AS exams. Is there a way to remove the exam dates for AS on my timetable? Thanks for such a great resource.
Is there a way to block out a week eg a family holiday so that no revision is scheduled?
Hi! I joined the beta a little while ago and it’s so good! I accidentally chose the wrong re board, is there any way that I can change it?
Thank you 😊
You can delete the subject you have added with the wrong board, and re-add the subject with the correct board. I hope that helps!
How do you add a test or mock exam to adapt? I have been trying to do so but it does not allow me to press done.
When I finish revising a topic, if I tell the app that I am confident in it, does that mean it won’t show up on my timetable again? I am using this app even though I am in year 10 (mainly now because of COVID) so I don’t want my “confident” topics to not show up again ever because I’ll forget them by year 11!!!!
I can't find any triple sciences for WJEC in the subjects. Will they be added?
It would be useful
Assuming you mean for GCSE, yes we have that :)
In the new update (30.1.2020) I can’t find how to edit/delete/view the confidence ratings - usually I go through my subjects and update each topic but they are not there? Thank you for your help in advance!
Is there any way to remove the AS Levels exams? And with Further Mathematics A Level, there are different modules people do and so is there a way to pick out the ones we definitely do so that we don't have exams on our timetable that we are not doing? Android Beta
Based on recent events, would it be possible to extend my timetable to September? If so could you please tell me how?
I was wondering when will the web version be available
So say I haven't covered some of the topics in class yet, do I have to have them selected or can you get them selected after you have covered it. Or is it to say which topics you are doing in the future because I have been told I am doing these subjects but we haven't started the topic at all in school, however it is asking me to start revising on it.
When making my timetable, I can't add a course for English because i won't know what paper I will cover in lesson. Is there a way for me to just put AQA English and just do eneral revision on it rather than having to choose one or the other?
I am using Beta at the moment so when the full app is released will all my data be transferred. Thank you.
Yes! All of your current data on the Beta app is being stored and will be automatically transferred once you download the full app and login :)
