English and maths retakes: more free books added to our collection | Jisc

lterrat's bookmarks 2017-08-23

Summary:

"Another 15 ebooks have been added to the initial 23 titles that were made available in September 2016. The collection, which we procured, covers all five of the main exam boards (AQA, SQA, OCR, Pearson Edexcel, WJEA) and includes practice and revision books.

Signing up for the collection is free for members and we have calculated that each full book downloaded represents a saving of £20. At a time when numbers of compulsory resits in these subjects after the age of 16 are predicted to rise considerably, the potential savings could be significant.We've calculated that the college which has downloaded the most ebooks over the past year would have had to fork out £32,000 in buying the equivalent number of physical books."
