Event description


5 week course - 5 sessions

This course will focus on the Natural Sciences Admission Assessment (NSAA). In order to do well in this exam, it is important that students have a good knowledge of AS Maths and two of Biology, Chemistry or Physics. The five lessons will cover all aspects of the NSAA, starting with three hours on Paper 1 and the last two hours on Paper 2. We will be looking at the overarching themes for each subject and tackling some of the harder questions found on the past papers. In between lessons, students will be able to apply the knowledge they’ve gained and further practise their skills. Practising these skills by completing past exam papers will be key to students’ success in this assessment.

The course is delivered online by a university academic and includes follow-up written assignments. You will be expected to share your writing in sessions and to evaluate critically your own and others’ writing.

Sessions take place on Friday 10, 18 and 29th July with two further sessions to be scheduled in mid-September and mid-October. Groups larger than 5 can join a class or opt for their own private lessons.

Academy courses are intended to challenge sixth form students (K12 & 13). Very advanced younger students (years 10 & 11) can also benefit from the courses.
