Frequently Asked Questions

Which exam boards do the flashcards and tutorials cover?

GCSEPhysicsNinja flashcards and video tutorials cover most of the GCSE, IGCSE O-Level topics required for AQA, EdExcel, WJEC, CCEA, Cambridge and OCR exam boards.

GCSEPhysicsNinja also provides a thorough preparation for the International Baccalaureate and most US High School Diplomas.

Some of the GCSEPhysicsNinja content may go beyond what your particular exam board requires. These flashcards are marked on each course overview page:

Extension = flashcards that go beyond GCSE / IGCSE requirements and that give a deeper understanding of the physics principles and applications.

IGCSE = flashcards that are only relevant to the IGCSE examination boards

GCSE = flashcards that are only relevant to the GCSE examination boards

CIE = Cambridge IGCSE Examinations Board


I am a physics teacher - can I use in my lessons?

Yes! You are welcome to display the flashcards and video tutorials from in your physics lessons, for example using an overhead projector or on classroom computers.

If you would like to use printable handouts of the flashcards, then please purchase the relevant school flashcards pack from the shop , which gives your school an unlimited and perpetual licence to copy, distribute and use hard copies of the flashcards in the classroom.


Help! I've forgotten my login details

If you've forgotten your password, you can reset it from the Login page's "Lost your password?" link (this appears after you've tried and failed to log in).

Alternatively, please contact me and I'll resend your username and a new password which you can then change if you want (by clicking My Account).


How do I make the flashcards?

You can either write your own flashcards onto some blank index cards, or even easier, download the printable flashcards for your course.

When you download a set of flashcards from the shop, you will get a link to the printable PDF download of the flashcards (in My Account). Simply print the document onto standard paper (e.g. A4), then cut out each flashcard, fold and glue the two halves together!

Want smaller cards? If you print using Adobe Reader you'll be able to scale your printed document to a smaller size, for example to 80% of its original size. Ta da! Smaller flashcards!


Are your physics flashcards and tutorial videos free?

The video tutorials are free. If you would like to download a printable pack of flashcards, please visit the shop!


Do you offer a licence for schools?

If you are a school, we offer a perpetual licence when you purchase a flashcards for schools pack.  Please checkout the shop!

      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 wondering if you could help me. I have recently broken my wrist and i can’t write. So i was seeing if you could give me any advice and ways how to revise without having to revise.

      Hi Abigail,
      Thanks for your question. Yikes – that sounds really painful and hard on your revision and exams… The key thing is to keep your revision ‘active’. What I mean by this is to keep trying questions from your textbook, exam papers, or GCSE Physics Ninja flashcards. As it’s obviously not possible for you to write the answers, perhaps you could ask a friend or family member to check your answers as you speak them. I’m guessing that you will have a ‘scribe’ for the exam, so this aural approach will also be good practice for the real thing.
      I hope that helps? I know what it’s like to break a wrist (in my case both several years back) and it certainly makes life challenging!
      Best wishes,

      Hi Jane,
      Thanks for your question.
      The GCSE Physics Ninja courses cover everything in the Cambridge IGCSE syllabus and most (90%) of the EdExcel IGCSE. Hope that helps?
