BBC Bitesize

Good friends Grace, Sam, Zak, Leona, Daria and Dan are in Year 10 at Secondary School. As well as dealing with their busy social lives, punctuated with blogging, roller disco and playing guitar, there is something else on their to-do list… now what was it… Oh yes…! Their GCSE exams!

Jim Le Fevre was commissioned by BBC Bitesize to write and direct an imaginative, animated comedy in 9 three-minute stand-alone episodes. It follows the six friends in their day-to-day lives as they prepare for their GCSEs.

The films use a unique combination of live action puppetry and 2D animation, creating a distinctive, irreverent and sometimes-bizarre sitcom, aimed at an audience of worldly-wise 14-16 year olds. The series demonstrates to students the virtues of revision and exam skills, passing on tips and tricks to get them through the stresses and strains of GCSE exams fever.

All 9 films are available to watch by downloading the free BBC Bitesize app .
