Year 12 Physics Assessment

Year 12 Physics students have an important Physics Assessment on Thursday 1st November.

It will cover all topics in the Physics course so far, focusing on Mathematical Skills and Errors, and on Forces in Equilibrium. This will be a good opportunity for students to show how they are progressing with their new A-Level Studies.

Please note that all pupils have access to the following resources, which I would strongly encourage them to utilise:

Resources 

  • 4-Part Revision Resources students have been provided with printed 4-Part Revision Resources designed to build their knowledge and exam technique. Copies of these, solutions and guidance can be found in the 4-Part Revision Resources folder in the A-Level Physics area on FROG. We have provided students with detailed instructions on how to complete them correctly.
  • Further resources in Frog can also be found in the Science Subject Dashboard Area. Past paper question packs can be found here for students to use as an important component of their revision to help with exam technique and testing their knowledge. 
  • Students have access to the website Isaac Physics, where they should be completing work set by teachers and for revision.  The website can be accessed at https://isaacphysics.org/.  There is also a list of other useful websites on the reverse of their Tracker sheet.
  • Text books have been given to each student which they will be using to complete homework and aid their revision, and regularly practice exam questions. Students have access to the online version of the textbook which has more supporting resources as well. The website can be accessed at kerboodle.com. If pupils are unable to access they should to speak to their class teachers or myself.

This test will be an important indication to the Physics Department of progress and needs to be attempted with maximum effort. 

We would like to remind pupils that they are expected to be working for a minimum of 1 hour a day on Physics outside of lessons; this will include set homework, but should also include their own study. We expect pupils to work towards becoming independent learners in preparation for further education, but are always available for support and guidance in how to work towards this.
