YEAR 12
PHYSICS
Our Objective
The year 12 Physics program at Cosmos aims at helping students understand all the concepts in Physics in detail and score maximum marks in their assessments and final exam. We achieve this by providing them with the ultimate combination of our interactive lectures, study material, quizzes, worksheets and continuous formative assessments. Students learn the entire year 12 Physics syllabus as per the latest NSW curriculum in full depth. Students need to attend one class every week along with an optional doubt clearing class every weekend. Each class is 2 hours long with a 10minute break in between. Students are motivated to keep their assessments up to date on google classroom and parents receive report cards every term containing detailed statistics of their children's test scores. Students can ask our teachers to help them personally with their school homework before/after class hours.

My child loved the tutoring. He had no interest in science when he started but he now enjoys it. Shariq made the subject really interesting by showing students videos and doing activities in class.
Alvin White
Great place for study. students can come anytime and study in the study rooms and also ask questions to teachers. Sai and his team is extremely helpful.

Rate 5 stars. Nice campus and learning environment. Students are taught several practical based things apart from regular academics.
Tanishka Reddy
Flexible teaching style. Teachers understood that my child was able to catch things fast and already knew the content so they promoted him to the next class and taught him the full syllabus. My son enjoyed his experience.
Sameer Reddy
Received lot of study material for practice. Online quizzes and tests were pretty helpful. Certainly recommend.
