Physics GCSE Teacher Assessed Grades Course

These two day-courses are designed to help students prepare for their teacher-graded assessments. Our tutors will review the entire specification, focusing on key content students are likely to need in the coming months. This will not only prepare students for this year’s assessment but will also provide a solid foundation should students wish to pursue this subject at a more advanced level. It’s likely that teachers will use students’ past paper performance to inform the grades they award. Our tutors will use past paper questions throughout their teaching to consolidate knowledge and demonstrate how to apply it to exam questions, in order to consistently score top marks. Students will leave the course with renewed confidence and a sense of mastery of the course content.

Learners are provided with high-quality, comprehensive and original material including notes, guides and question booklets. These resources have been specially created to supplement the learning experience and support students beyond the course.
