Here you can find our handmade revision guide for various Physics modules. We are in the process of updating all of these throughout the year.

In the academic years 2022/23 and 2022/23, all physics (and maths modules for Maths and Physics) modules are being replaced with completely new modules. Hence the guides may differ to what is being covered in the syllabi. Check the archive below for these lecture notes.

Note: these guides should be used in tandem with other material, such as module lecture notes and videos.

If there are any issues or corrections needed with these documents, then please let us know!
