Take the student quizzes

This quiz let's us see how you are getting on with Supercytes

When should you take the Supercytes quiz below?

  • BEFORE using Supercytes, to see how much you already know.
  • AFTER using Supercytes, to see what you have learned.

If your class doesn’t have the Supercytes resource, please apply and wait until you have the resource pack before completing the quiz.

How can my teacher get Supercytes?

Why should you take the Supercytes Quizzes?

  • Taking both quizzes will upgrade your school to Supercytes 'stars' status on our map!
  • The quizzes help to show how much you've learned about inflammation and immunology.
  • The questions help us to see if Supercytes is reaching minority groups and students that don’t traditionally follow science careers.
  • Completing the quizzes and feedback will help us improve Supercytes.


Teacher note

Please first review the “Getting Started” document in your Supercytes resource pack / download, before your class take the quiz below.

What if my class can't all go online to complete the quizzes?

Instead of every every student filling in the quizzes online, please use the PowerPoint presentations and printable quiz forms on your resource pack USB stick (or in the digital download) to run the quizzes, then input the collated class data using the quiz submission form:
