Comprehensive Oxford Mathematics and Physics Online School (COMPOS)
Oxford Physics is expanding its new outreach initiative aimed at Y12 and Y13 students at UK state schools.
The program is called COMPOS, Comprehensive Oxford Mathematics and Physics Online School, and its mission is to help enthusiastic high school students to systematically learn these subjects.
The educational approach of COMPOS largely borrows from the tutorial system of Oxbridge. That is, in addition to regular webinars and homework assignments, each participant will be assigned a tutor, who will mark their homework and give them weekly 1-hour online tutorials in a group of 5-6 people.
The curriculum largely follows the school syllabus but presents the material at a higher and deeper level, concentrating on problem solving skills, thereby preparing the students for higher education and eventually a career in physics and mathematics.
COMPOS is free of charge. Please pass this information to Y11/Y12 students and teachers you work with. We are particularly interested in students from low income households (pupil premium), but we aim to accept all motivated candidates.
