Oxford PAT Preparation Course – Online

Course Information

Course Description

This two-day course covers the topics that students need to know for the PAT, focusing on areas that would not normally be covered at school by the date of the exam.

As the PAT questions differ in style from A-level questions, this course aims to help students learn the types of questions asked and show students how to answer them in the most efficient way.

Our course tutor Görkem has over 9 years’ experience preparing students for the PAT. His accessible teaching style means tricky topics can be mastered with ease and students will leave the course with the confidence to tackle questions independently.

Görkem Çavlı

Görkem Çavlı

Görkem achieved his BA in Physics from Magdalen College, Oxford University, in 2011 before earning his QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) from King’s College London in 2012. Teaching has long been a passion of his. In his teenage years, he worked as a tennis coach, and in 2010, while still an undergraduate student, he began tutoring students in his spare time. In 2013 while working as a full-time physics and maths tutor, he established the Physics & Maths Tutor website (PMT), which he steadily grew over the next few years, alongside his teaching career.

These days Görkem primary focuses on running PMT Education rather than tutoring, however, he still teaches the PAT course online and in person, preparing students for university admission. Outside of his busy work schedule, Görkem enjoys quality wine (when his co-workers can actually lure him from the office) and destressing at the gym each morning before work – a habit he shamelessly flaunts to his colleagues, who find evening workouts more tolerable. He recently discovered gymnastics rings and is currently working to make his ‘skin the cat’ look more graceful.
