Our Story

Cognito was founded in 2017 by Amadeus (the voice) & Tom (the artist) on the belief that education plays a fundamental role in providing opportunities and improving wellbeing. In 2020 we joined up with Paul (our brilliant developer) to continue our mission of providing students with the highest quality learning resources we can. So far this has lead us to create a YouTube channel, a past paper website, and also a student learning platform.

YouTube Channel (2018)

We started our journey in 2018 with the creation of the 'Cognito YouTube channel'. After a lot of trial and error we now have ~400 videos covering GCSE Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths. The channel’s grown rapidly, and Cognito lessons are now viewed approximately 2 million times a month.

Resource Site

Resources Site (2020)

One of the most effective ways to revise is by practicing questions from past exam papers. In 2020 we made a past paper resources site, providing past papers arranged by year, and past exam questions arranged by topic.

Learning platform (2021)

Our most recent project has been a student learning platform. Our goal here was to take students through the entire learning journey, from learning a concept for the first time, all the way to being exam ready. We really focused on making the process as streamlined and clear as possible, and also ensuring our content is specific to each exam board.
