GCSE Physics Quizzes aim to help you with your revision whilst keeping you from getting too bored! Procrastination is our worst enemy and quizzes can help you to make progress when you’re struggling to revise.

We have made these physics quizzes according to the exam board specification, so when the quizzes are complete, they will completely cover the material (where it is possible to do so in quiz format). Where any topics are not relevant to your course, the description will point it out and you can skip that quiz. 

Our physics tutors have made these quizzes to fill in the areas where you are struggling to remember or understand the material. Topics such as electricity and circuits or magnetism can be difficult to understand and our goal is to help you pass those exams. Read the explainers and take the quiz to see how you do. We recommend repeating each quiz until you pass with confidence, and for your information, our pass mark is set at 70%. 

Having a high pass rate of 70% ensures that you have remembered a sufficient amount of the material to move on to another topic. Now go and take your first quiz and see how you can improve over time!

What is Physics?

Physics is a mode and field of scientific research that attempts to uncover the nature of the fundamental particles. Additionally, this field looks to understand the motion of particles, their interactions and their transformations into energy. It could be considered to be the baseline of all science since it deals with the stuff of the universe, matter and energy. To put it simply, physics focuses on just how the universe behaves and develops with time, with the objective to address the question, “just how does the universe work? “. 

Where did Physics come from?

GCSE Physics Quiz

Physics was originally developed by the early thinkers of the World who called themselves Natural Philosophers, one of the earliest and most famous being Aristotle, a student of Plato, who himself was a student of the legendary Socrates. Physics was born out of philosophy and the attempt to apply logic to understand the physical nature of our surroundings.

What else does Physics provide for us?

Physicists have a substantial influence on other fields of study and also the evolution of history. Not only does this branch of science give a theoretical framework to examine the world, but it also provides the tools to mess around with it! It is very important to understand the basics of physics because these principles are the basis of every innovation. Additionally, it has enabled us to understand the great geological forces which shape our world. This knowledge is vital for predicting as well as minimising natural disasters alongside long term planning to deal with the consequences of climate change, both natural and anthropogenic.
