Length of course1, 2 or 3 days  


Boards: All Boards


This course is suitable for students enrolled into the GCSE Additional Science syllabus. Core subjects will be covered. Some topics vary between different boards. It is therefore critical students specify which board and syllabus they are enrolled into so these topics can be revised.

The core topics from the three units that constitute the syllabus will be revised with the extensive use of past examination papers.
