October NSAA Course (Live)

£459.00

Dates: October 24th and 25th

Location: Live on Zoom

Times: 10am – 4:30pm (9am first day)

The second of our courses for students sitting the Physics and Maths parts of the NSAA for entry to Cambridge Natural Sciences, building on the material from our Physics Summer School.

Following our summer Physics courses, in which we covered the syllabus topic-by-topic, our next courses are focused on exam technique.
Timing is one of the most difficult things in the NSAA and it’s where the most students fall down.
Day 1: Maths and Physics Time Saving Tricks
On the first day of this course, we’ll teach tricks and techniques to make you quicker at calculations and help you spot how to speed up your working in both Physics and Maths multiple-choice questions in the style of NSAA.
Day 2: Two Original, Timed, Live Mock Papers
On the second day, we’ll be giving you two realistic mock papers (these are brand new mock papers that you won’t have seen before) for the NSAA, which we will then mark and discuss together. Doing practice papers in timed conditions is absolutely vital to practise the techniques we’ll have taught you and to see what you still need to work on before the exam.

Description

A 2-day Preparation Course for students sitting the Physics and Maths parts of the NSAA for entry to Cambridge Natural Sciences. Takes place in the weekend before October half term.

The NSAA is a time-pressured, non-calculator test, so it heavily tests you ability to simplify problems and find the quickest way to an answer.

What’s more, now that the NSAA specification has changed for 2020, there are no past papers available in the new NSAA format.

For those reasons, our October NSAA Course has two main features:

  1. Teaching time-saving tricks to quickly tackle the Maths and Physics questions in the NSAA
  2. Practising applying these techniques in two exclusive, brand new NSAA Physics and Maths mocks (not part of our online resources)

 

Details:

  • Dates: October 24th and 25th
  • Location: Live on Zoom
  • Times: 10am – 4:30pm (9am first day)
  • Content:
    • Speed up your calculations by spotting tricks like factors, approximations, proportionality arguments
    • Quickly apply the geometry of circles and triangles to forces, optics, and other questions
    • Master all the rules of logs and indices for use in simplifying or comparing sizes of terms
    • Rapidly analyse functions for their roots, stationary values, and limiting behaviour
  • Mock papers: Apply what you’ve learned in two exclusive, brand new NSAA Physics and Maths mocks (not part of our online resources), which will then be marked and discussed
