Slides containing clear and detailed notes on the content will be provided in advance, as well as the exam questions we will be working through.


Gain example answers and expert guidance on how best to answer the following topics:

  • Energy stores and transfers – using the new language properly
  • Work and power calculations
  • Calculations of the various energy types and efficiency
  • Applying electric circuit rules for current, voltage and resistors and formulae to complex circuit questions
  • Voltage-current characteristic graphs for electric components explained
  • Sensing circuits: LDRs in light sensing circuits and thermistors in thermostats
  • Describing particles in solids liquid and gases and what happens to mass, kinetic energy and potential energy and temperature in changes of state
  • Formulae for specific latent heat and specific heat capacity
  • Pressure in gases and the effects of temperature and volume
  • Atomic structure and the differences between the plum pudding and Rutherford model
  • Nuclear decay equations
  • Half-life explanation and calculations
  • Fission and fusion



  • All students studying AQA GCSE Physics
