IGCSE Exam Prep – Physics

This programme is open to students taking the IGCSE 0625 (Physics) Core / Extended syllabuses.

All the topics covered in the examination are spread over 6 sessions. Each session aims to give students a better understanding of key concepts and ways to apply them as well as how to spot errors to avoid them. Students will also learn how to identify the right concepts and phrases to answer open-ended questions and avoid common pitfalls. See the Programme Details section below for a more comprehensive look at the programme.

Description

  • This programme is open to students taking the IGCSE 0625 (Physics) Core / Extended syllabuses.
  • This programme is designed for students to review key topics for the IGCSE examination and focuses on honing students’ mastery in question and data analysis, answering techniques and error analysis.
  • Worked examples help students learn essential skills and strategies, such as how to identify key concepts and key phrases when answering questions. Students also learn to avoid common misconceptions and common pitfalls when analysing and answering questions. Formative assessment tests for each topic then expose students to a comprehensive range of common exam questions to ensure that students consolidate key concepts through attempting questions of increasing difficulty. This will help students to reinforce conceptual understanding, learn how to accurately analyse and apply concepts, and ultimately, achieve exam excellence.
