British edtech startup Up Learn has raised £2.5 million in a funding round led by Forward Partners. The startup claims to be using AI and cognitive science to increase the efficiency with which people study.

Founded in 2016, Up Learn currently offers A-Level economics and physics courses, with maths and psychology in the pipeline. The startup claims that 97 percent of students who complete its courses achieve an A or A* grade. For those who won’t reach the highest grade, the startup promises to give their money back.

The learning platform includes interactive videos, textual materials, quizzes, and on-demand tutoring services. It also creates a learning plan based on how long the student has until their exam. It also claims to use AI algorithms to identify the weak spots in the student’s knowledge and focus on them.
