Practice Questions and Solutions

I prepared these pages for those who attended the booster classes this year, but the rest of you might find them useful!

The following hyper-links take you to pages of GCSE standard questions. Each question has a link for you to click to see the solution - and useful comments on how the marks are allocated.

I suggest that you try each question in turn and then look at the mark scheme - that way you will know the sort of emphasis examiners put on keywords etc. for later questions you tackle.

Electricity in the home

Electromagnetic Induction (Electric Generator)

Electromagnetic Spectrum

I am in the process of setting this page up. Please be patient. I will be adding more topics soon. It takes a long time to put them in a suitable format for online use.
