GCSE Science Mock Preparation Course

This two day course is designed to prepare the students for their January mock exams. The course will cover all three sciences, focusing the most challenging topics and questions for each subject. Often students struggle with the same types of questions for each science such as titration calculations for Chemistry and long-answer questions for Biology. Time will be spent correcting misconceptions and practicing exam questions. Moreover, time will be spent working on effective study techniques so students learn the most efficient and productive way to revise for exams.

Learners are supported beyond the course through the provision of high-quality, comprehensive and original material including notes, guides and question booklets. These resources have been specially designed and created to supplement the learning experience.

Andreas Brown

Andreas is currently in his fourth year studying Medicine at UCL. Last year he received a First Class (Honours) degree in Mathematics and Computing. Before going to university Andreas took a year out to tutor full-time, supporting students from GCSE up to A-level, as well as with their university entrance exams and interview preparation. He has continued to tutor over the 6 years that have followed, both privately and with PMT, and over that period has produced resources alongside PMT to accompany his lessons.

He focuses sessions on the most effective ways to learn the course content and, more importantly, how to translate this knowledge into answers that gain maximum marks. His warm personality will ensure you feel able to ask questions and lessons are fun and engaging!
