Year 11 Physics

Our Year 11 Physics tutoring program begins at the beginning of Term 1 of each year and runs up to the end of Term 3, with the year 12 HSC Physics tutoring program commencing in Term 4.

Year 11 Physics Course Overview

Our Year 11 Preliminary Physics tutoring program starts at the beginning of the syllabus and over the course of three terms, will comprehensively cover all syllabus dot-points and outcomes of the year 11 Physics syllabus. As there is no assumed knowledge, the program is ideal for year 11 Physics students wanting a strong foundation towards their HSC Physics course in year 12.

This course is ideal for:

  • Students who are intending to or are doing year 11 Physics
  • Year 11 Physics students wanting a strong foundation towards their HSC Physics course

Depth Studies and First-hand Investigations

From 2018 onwards, the syllabus requires Year 11 and Year 12 students to do a Depth Study, in each year, which could count 15% – 30% of your total assessment for the year. Common forms the Depth Study can take are:

  • Designing and performing a First-hand investigation
  • Secondary source analysis (writing a report / conducting literature review etc)

In addition to covering all theoretic content of the Year 11 Physics syllabus, our course will also provide students with actionable and practical guidance for their Depth Study assessment.
