How do I log in?

You’ll need to enter your Centre ID, User ID and Password in the login area, which can be found on the top right of the website.  

I’ve forgotten or don’t know my username.

Your username is made up of your initials and your birthday in six-digit format. If you were born on 27 September 2007 and your name is Robert Jones it would be: 270907RJ

I’ve forgotten or don’t know my password.

At the start, your password is the same as your username, so try that first. If that does not work, you can try resetting your password by answering your ‘secret question’. If you have not set up a secret question, you will need to ask your teacher to reset your password.

I’ve forgotten or don’t know my school’s Centre ID.

Use the ‘Can’t log in?’ function to find your Centre ID using you school’s postcode.

How can I get more points?

Do more activities! Avoid doing the same activities too many times as after the third time you will no longer receive any points.

Will teachers see which questions I get wrong/incorrect?

If they have set them as an assignment/homework for you then, depending on the activity type, yes.

Can I remove myself from the leaderboard?

How do I change my buddies?

How do I select the correct exam board?

How do I check my progress for a subject?

Click on the ‘My Progress’ tab. You can also show your parents how you are progressing with SAM Learning.

Why should I do an activity more that once?

If you don’t get 100% on your first attempt, you should try again. As your score improves, your teacher can see that you are making progress. You also get more points for your second or third attempt.

I only get SAM Learning homework in one of two subjects. Should I do other subjects?
