GCSE Physics is created for students who want to deepen their knowledge in Physics and prepare for the exams in a fun way.

There is a constant demand in educational apps, since they make the process of learning more interesting and comfortable, let the students unleash their potential and show better results. Several studies prove this statement, as mentioned in the Paperwritings company blog.

GCSE Physics is available on most iOS devices. The possibility to run an app on tablets is good this way students can test their knowledge of Physics on the go: while traveling, standing in line or during breaks. It also does not require Internet connection, if only a reporting feature is not used.

Tests are divided by topics, question types and difficulty, so users can easily find what suits them the best. 250 questions are available for free. Up to 1000 questions per subject can be added upon request, and their number is growing. GCSE Physics also provides sample videos from learnerscloud.com for free.

As for the main app features, students can:

  • set up a timer
  • turn the sound on and off
  • randomize questions, so they do not get the same questions
  • set up an instant feedback option as they like (it is a good feature to see the correct answer right after students answer the question)

These are the topics available:

  • Atom and Radioactivity
  • Electricity
  • Charge
  • Work, energy and power
  • Energy, transfer and efficiency
  • Waves
  • Gravity and space
  • Motion
  • Using and generating electricity

As for the question types there are:

  • Descriptive questions
  • Fill in the blanks
  • Multiple choice single answer
  • Yes or No
  • True or false

Students can be sure that all the content used in this app is checked thoroughly and covers all UK leading exam boards. Besides, it implements some gamification techniques to make the process of exam preparation more interesting. For example, students can share their percentage score via social media after they get to the end of the section.

Operating system compatibility

Requires iOS 10.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
