Grade 12 pure physics


In this course you will learn the basics of physics as prescribed in the O level pure physics syllabus. It is intended for learners taking pure physics at senior secondary school level of education, this includes both internal pupils and GCE candidates. It places greater emphasis on understanding and application of science concepts and principles.

What Will I Learn?

  • This course will equip you with the neccesary skills required for you to pass your examinations with flying colours. In our increasingly technological these skills will be relevant for a long time even beyond college.
