Wow! Thanks so much for all the lovely words about Get Revising - we really appreciate all your support. In the end it's all of you guys creating, sharing, rating, commenting and helping each other that make Get Revising what it is - we couldn't do it without you.

Anyway, there have to be winners and we've chosen three to win a £10 Amazon voucher and their words of wisdom to be displayed in our new offices. Here they are (in no particular order):

Get Revising isn't just about cramming in the days before an exam. We know that real learning keeps the world moving forward and we want to show students that learning can be exciting and fun .

One of the hardest things about studying is getting the motivation to sit down and get started. We aim to make Get Revising enjoyable so getting down to work will be that little bit easier.

Right - better order those Amazon vouchers!

Get Revising matters to me because it helps me learn in different ways rather than revising from one type of revision. It helps me to learn from different people. It is easy to make revision notes.

As a new member, I have noticed how Get Revising has helped me to start revising for my GCSE's as it provides you with various tools and activities in order to progress. Most importantly, it has helped me to organise myself by creating a timetable that works around my current commitments!

Get revising matters to me due to it: providing me with the skills required for a typical student. In consequence, I am more confident with my education through the academic year. Therefore, I perform at the best of my ability, which is great.

I find it very difficult to get myself motivated to revise, but Get Revising allows me to easily change the way in which I revise into something more fun like a word search! It's fun but surprisingly still goes in! Also it's nice to get help from others revising for the same exam too!

Get Revising is a great way to relieve stress from exams by letting people discuss there problems and queries with the up and coming exams. It allows you to make flash cards and revision timetables which will help you organise your studies. It motivates you to work harder and achieve your true potential. It gives you the chance to share with others what you are studying and areas which you are unsure of. I would just  like to say a BIG thank you to the founders of  get revising for doing just that!!!!
