In 2022, the Online Revision Lecture will be held on Sunday, 11th September. Registrations are now open. The cost is $25 per student.

The presenters will be Paul Cuthbert from University High School and Sandor Kazi from Melbourne Girls’ College, both of whom regularly present revision lectures. The lecture will be presented as a Zoom webinar.

The structure of the program is that Sandor and Paul will each take it in turn to present a 45 min talk on an Area of Study with a 15 minute gap in between. The program starts at 9:00am and runs until 1:45pm.

The sequence will be:

  • Fields Area of Study with Paul Cuthbert
  • Motion Area of Study with Sandor Kazi
  • Electrical Energy Area of Study with Paul Cuthbert
  • Waves, Light and Matter Areas of Study with Sandor Kazi
  • Revision strategies, Exam techniques and other useful advice with both Paul and Sandor

A credit card is preferred, but the system can generate an invoice for payment by EFT if the school does not have a credit card and will not reimburse a personal credit card.

A Google Drive was set up last year with 17 revision documents prepared by Colin Hopkins on different sections of the course, each with sample questions.
The Zoom Webinar will have a Q & A facility where you could ask questions during the lecture. A panel of physics teachers will answers these questions while the lecture is proceeding. The full set of questions and answers will be saved at the end and put on the Google Drive along with the links to applets, etc. included in the Chat.

Colin has very kindly offered to make his material freely available. So the folder in the Google Drive now has open access.

The physics teacher community greatly appreciates Colin’s generosity.

The link to the google folder is here.

Colin Hopkins has set up a Youtube Channel. It has his lectures from 2020. Students should note that in 2020 because of COVID and extended lock down from early in the year, VCAA reduced the content to be examined. So not all of the 2022 examinable content was covered by these lectures.

This website also has two pages to assist students Advice on Revising Physics and Advice of Learning Physics.
