Description

A bundle comprising the following two live courses:

1) Physics Admissions Summer School (on Zoom)

  • Details: August 17th – 20th, 9am to 4pm (first day), then 10am to 4pm (middle 2 days), then 10am to 5pm (last day)
  • Days 1-3 aim to bring you up to scratch with all of the commonly occurring subject matter that could be examined through PAT or at interview. Topics covered:
    • Static forces
    • The behaviour of moving bodies studied via dynamics and kinematics
    • The special case of circular motion and its application to orbits
    • The behaviour of electrical circuits governed by resistors, electrical power, and more exotic components like capacitors and diodes
    • The physics of waves and intensity, and especially electromagnetic radiation
    • Electric charge, electric potential energy, and electrostatic forces
    • Radioactive decay
    • Springs and elasticity
    • Astronomy
    • General physically-applicable reasoning, including the square-cube law
  • Day 4 focuses on admissions-test-style short maths questions. Content:
    • Justifying and qualifying inferences
    • Iterating and composing functions
    • Using inequalities and estimates
    • Managing higher order polynomials
    • Sketching unfamiliar graphs

2) October PAT Problem Solving Course (also on Zoom)

  • Details: October 9th & 10th, 10am – 4pm (9am first day)
  • Learn to understand a problem, pick out all important information, choose a method of evaluation or analysis, and determine an answer, even when the question seems to give you little direction as to what route to take.
  • Content:
    • Effortlessly manipulate and apply unfamiliar formulae
    • Draw together knowledge from the whole of the syllabus and apply it to very challenging problems
    • Employ geometry and graph sketching in Physics
    • Rehearse explaining your assumptions and evaluating your results
    • Dive deeper into the background and significance of familiar material
    • Topics including capacitors, circular motion, optics, radioactivity, and scaling laws

PLUS the following pre-recorded online resources:

PAT Past Paper Video Solutions

Detailed solution videos for every PAT question from 2006 – 2019

 

Useful Physics Theory for Admissions Tests

What our students said:

The course has not only given me better knowledge of the topics that I’ll be tested on, but has also helped me develop my problem solving skills for physics questions. The help given on difficult questions was excellent and there was always an opportunity to give feedback on the sessions.
– Rebecca

“The course covers a vast amount of content in good detail and with challenging questions. The support from tutors during the course is great and they provided very helpful comments on how to work through questions and improve my approach.”
– Rohith

β€œThe best things about the course were the variety of the topics and the range of different exercises from different tests.”
– Dara
