This course offers year 11 students a programme of weekly GCSE Physics online classes, covering topics that students often find most challenging. Importantly, all of these topics are examined across all GCSE & IGCSE exam boards. Mastering these topics will be critical for students aiming for the highest grades, and as such these sessions are aimed at students who are aiming top grades at GCSE.
This course runs on Thursdays 4.30pm - 6pm (UK Time) during term time throughout the academic year and is designed for students to join at any time during the course, subject to availability.
