Top A-Level and GCSE Physics Resources
March 2, 2021Students
We’ve found the best online Physics resources for A Level and GCSE students - so you don’t have to.
1. BBC Bitesize
No list of educational resources would be complete without the BBC Bitesize website. Bitesize breaks Physics down according to what level you’re studying at e.g. GCSE or Highers if you’re studying in Scotland. From there it separates content into smaller topics, so you can easily find the content you want to learn.
This revision site is definitely up there as one of the best and it’s suitable for both GCSE Physics and A Level Physics students.
S-cool is super easy to navigate because the content is conveniently divided up. Whether you want to revise the properties of waves or nuclear refraction, S-cool covers it all.
3. Physics Net
Physics Net has a wealth of knowledge for A Level and GCSE Physicians. The website uses a nice straightforward format, presenting content in lists and small chunks of information that are easy to revise.
It’s also got a really useful glossary of terms, so you can look up words you don’t know the definition for like candela or concave!
4. Past Papers
One of the best ways to revise is by using past papers to practice. With past exam papers, you get a real feel for the format of questions and you’re able to practice your exam technique and time yourself.
The main exam boards for Physics A Level and GCSE are OCR, AQA and Pearson (Edexcel).
