Introducing Year 13 Techniques, General Physics Knowledge, and Derivations you might not have seen before your Admissions Exam
PAT, ENGAA, and NSAA sometimes require knowledge you would not have covered in school
We have made introductory videos to material that is from year 13 or is never explicitly covered in A-level physics.
Practise deriving and extrapolating from existing knowledge
We include some material you should be familiar with, but with more fundamental explanations or tricks for better application. Expanding your knowledge and skills in these topics improves your understanding and might be relied upon at interview.
Adding springs and resistors
The rules for combining springs and resistors are surprisingly similar – we explain where the results come from and how to use them
Projectiles and Orbits
We derive the basic results and show some potentially useful consequences.
Buoyancy and Archimedes’ Principle
Not much discussed at A-level, this phenomenon crops up most years in admissions tests, and potentially at interview.
A common technique beyond A-level, and therefore tested in university applicants, but often ignored at school. We explain and then practise it.
