GCSE Physics Revision – Improve Your Grade

Revise Physics GCSE the Smarter Way…

Olly Wedgwood

Welcome to GCSEPhysicsNinja.com, a free home-study GCSE physics revision course designed to maximise recall, build confidence and boost achievement in science GCSE examinations.

I’m Olly Wedgwood – Cambridge Engineering graduate and GCSE/A-Level physics tutor since 2001.

I believe that if students have the correct teaching, feel they are supported and are willing to put the work in, then they can achieve great success in their studies.

For many years I have been helping students boost their Physics and Science grades beyond what they thought possible using an ‘Active Revision’ Question & Answer Flashcard method. This approach is proven to be significantly more effective than traditional revision techniques.

I have now ‘packaged’ this tutoring system into a FREE guided revision course so that others can also reach their full potential in physics GCSE.

Boost Your Recall with a Guided Revision Programme


Each GCSE physics revision course delivers a flexible programme of guided study that is designed to boost recall and understanding.

It can support the student alongside their school studies throughout the year.

Using the printable Progress Planners, the student can follow a structured revision course. A typical three month course requires about 15 minutes of study each day, with one day off per week. The same revision course taken over a shorter one month period typically requires a more intensive 45 minutes of study each day (one day off per week).


GCSE Physics Revision – For FREE!

Here is what you get at GCSEPhysicsNinja.com:

‘Active Revision’ Flashcards
FlashcardsSelect your course then click on a lesson. You will see the flashcard question which you can copy onto your own index cards – alternatively, you might like to purchase the professionally printed GCSE Physics Ninja Active Revision workbook for your course.

These flashcards are the key to boosting your physics knowledge and recall. Each card contains an essential ‘bitesize’ chunk of your GCSE course with a question on the front and an answer on the back. A simple 4-step revision process will guide your revision to complete each flashcard answer page and review previous questions. These flashcards reflect exactly what is required by the student’s particular examination board.

The GCSEPhysicsNinja.com Video Tutorial Library.
This is your virtual classroom onn each flashcard lesson page. I have ‘bottled’ my 12+ years of physics teaching experience into a library of bitesize 2-4 minute video tutorials so you can check your flashcard answer. There are hundreds video tutorials here covering everything you need to know for your physics exam.

The GCSE Physics Revision Progress Planners (Printable Download)
Keep track of your revision as you progress through the course with this at-a-glance planner. Stick it up on your wall and tick off the course lessons one by one. You have the option of studying your course for an intensive 4-6 weeks, a less intensive 3-4 months or as a ‘school support’ revision course for 6-9 months. This is a great way to keep your motivation levels high and check that you are on target to finish the course ideally a couple of weeks before your physics exam. Download your planner from your physics course above.


Ask a Question – Tutor Support

This question and answer discussion forum for each course topic provides a valuable learning resource in itself (all comments are moderated).


GCSE Physics – Smarter Revision

With GCSE Physics Ninja you have many of the benefits of private 1-to-1 tutoring at your fingertips! Use your Revision Planner to help you stay on track and remember that revising ‘little and often’ is much better than revising ‘a lot but a little’!

My aim is to improve GCSE your physics exam grade. Unfortunately, my one-to-one tuition timetable is often completely booked up and so I often have to turn students away… Now, with GCSEPhysicsNinja.com I am proud to offer a guided self-study revision course to give more students the opportunity to improve their physics GCSE grade.


Boost Your GCSE Grade!

Please let me know if you have any questions by emailing me or leaving a comment on the FAQs page and I will get right back to you.

Wishing you the best of success in becoming a GCSE Physics Ninja!

    Hi olly,
    I’m very impressed by the website and I’ve been working with the flashcards. Just wanted to let you know that I can already feel a difference, like all the information is starting to stick and thank you for that.

      Dear Aarti,
      Thanks for getting in touch!
      Sorry to hear that your daughter is struggling with her subjects – GCSEs can be quite daunting for many students… However, the GCSE Physics Ninja course should certainly help her with Physics – as long as she is willing to work at it a ‘little and often’. It’s great that you are willing to work with her, and as she is only just about to go into year 10, at least she has a fair amount of time to prepare.
      I have just emailed you with some ideas and suggestions – I look forward to hearing from you!

    I was just wondering, do you do any revision resources for biology and chemistry?

    • Olly Wedgwood says:

      Hi Tabitha,
      I’m working on a similar chemistry GCSE website (GCSEChemistryNinja.com), but it won’t be available for a year or two!
