Pre A-Level Physics


Course Overview

This is a course for students who are coming to the end of their secondary school career and plan to take physics at A-Level. During this course, all students will have the chance to recap the common physics fundamentals and topics which the students will be faced with almost immediately, and frequently, during their A-Level physics course. It will build on these previous concepts, and introduce the more advanced elements in easy-to-understand ways. Throughout these lessons, real-life examples and applications will be used and any misconceptions will be addressed. By the end of the course, students will have the foundations in place to excel in their A-Level physics studies and will feel confident in embarking on this next stage.
