Physics Bridging the Gap Course

Our two day online Bridging the Gap Physics course is a great way for students to prepare for going back to school. Our experienced teacher will guide students through important topics they need to make the transition from GCSE to A-level easier. This course is not specific to an exam board as the focus is to refresh and learn content, not prepare for exams. Students will go into their A-levels feeling confident, prepared and eager to learn more.
