WELCOME

We hope you’re ready to start learning your science IGCSE(s)!

 

Our timetable (found here and on your student account) starts Monday September 6th. It’s our path to learning that fits most student’s daily lives. One folder a week aiming for Summer 2023 exams.

 

However, we are not all the same! With different ages, experience, learning styles and lives you can adapt the course to suit your own timetable and exam sitting. We are here to offer tutor support until Summer 2024.

INSTRUCTIONS

Watch this video on how to use the course. Some features are to be released this half term.

PRE-COURSEWORK & LESSON 1

If you’ve started late and not had a chance to complete the pre-coursework, don’t worry! You can complete any time you want. You're often re-directed to it throughout the course. If you want to enter the competition for the pre-coursework, please complete it by September 20th at midnight.

 

For chemists and physicists lesson 1 is a biggy! The biggest in the course and definitely not an average week. This and the pre-coursework covers the key stage 2 and 3 (age 7 - 14 years) that is absolutely essential for IGCSE.

 

We include this to make the course complete, opposed to not understanding things because of limited foundational knowledge. 

Struggling to learn it all? Slow down and don’t worry. Any progress is great progress. 

TUTOR SUPPORT

As some of you know we used to communicate predominantly through a Facebook group. We are streamlining our communication ports to be more inclusive to all students and guardians. For this reason, we have moved all communication to email and the website.

MESSAGE OR EMAIL
