Easter Revision Courses – GCSE Physics

Course duration:

25 hours.

Dates & Times: 

Starting on Monday, 9th April 2018 to Friday 13th April 2018, 9 am – 2 pm daily.

Boards:

Based on the Edexcel specification but suitable for other boards.

Description:

During the course, students will learn the theory of all the topics, focusing on becoming able to describe and explain key concepts, to perform numerical calculations using the appropriate formulae and to answer context-based questions following a logical and concise approach.

Through exposure to past papers, students will be able to develop and improve their exam techniques and methodologies.
