In October, we will hold two days of NSAA courses on Physics and Maths. Day 1 covers time-saving tricks relevant to NSAA Section 1 while day 2 teaches problem-solving relevant to longer questions like NSAA Section 2.

Check out our NSAA online subscription to find past paper video solutions (Maths, Physics, Biology, and Chemistry) and hundreds of extra practice questions, all accompanied by video solutions.

Happy students! Testimonials:
Read what our students have said about our Maths and Physics preparation courses and resources
Some of the techniques mentioned were really helpful in that they would be applicable to other similar questions. Most of the questions had detailed solutions so I was able to understand where I went wrong. Tharusha A

This course was incredibly useful and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is considering studying physics at university. The pace is slow enough for you to follow and fast enough that a lot of content is covered. The card system is a great way for the tutors to see if you are struggling and need some extra help which they are more than happy to give. Tivi N

This course was very helpful in teaching me how to approach the questions. The teamwork was a good learning tool since it showed me different ways of doing the same question. I like the fact that the teachers come around to help whilst you are working on a question. Mia L
