You do not need to have  a high standard of Maths to succeed in Leaving Cert Physics. You need to be competent at manipulating formulae and using your calculator. As the course is quite long, students need to be very well prepared. Students need to know definitions, demonstration of experiments, proofs and real-life Physics applications. Kieran’s notes organise the physics course so all students need to do is carry out the work as set out in the notes.


Recently exam papers have tended to have questions with mixed topics meaning omitting parts of the course is risky. For example, last year’s paper included a question on nuclear physics where students had to carry out a heat calculation. With this in mind, it is essential that students try to cover most of the course. Leaving out major topics like Electricity is not an option.


Section A is an experimental section. Kieran provided students with a workbook allowing students to carry out a write-up of all the experiments.


All leaving cert questions relevant to a topic appear at the end of each set of notes. Full solutions to all questions in the notes are provided.


Kieran puts special emphasis on Modern Physics (electron and nucleus) and the Particle Physics option. There can be a great return in studying these topics as they often yield 50% of the Section B questions.

Frequently Asked Questions

If I sign up to the On-Demand Grinds programme, will I be able to rewatch the video lessons at a later date?

Yes access to all your video lessons will be available right up until the State Examinations in 2023 are over.

Will the 40+ hours of video lessons be available to watch from the start of the year?

Yes, students will have access to their subject's video library which they can watch at their own pace.

Is there a cut-off point to signing up for the On-Demand Grinds programme?

No, although our On-Demand Grinds programme commences June 27th 2022, students can still sign up after this date.

How and when do I get my notes?

Please allow at least 3-4 working days to receive your notes. There may be a scenario where you are granted access to our On-Demand Grinds programme prior to the study notes arriving but we advise students to wait until they have the notes before commencing watching the video lessons.

Can you do these courses if you don't live in Dublin?

Yes, you can watch the video lessons from the comfort of your own home as they are online. You will also have hard copies of the notes so you don't have to worry about printing them.

Can notes be delivered anywhere in the country?

Yes, notes can be delivered to anywhere in Ireland.

How will I access the On-Demand Grinds programme?

Our On-Demand Grinds programme will be hosted on our DASH platform. We will email you with your login details and password for this platform.

Can I view the videos more than once?

Yes, you can pause, rewind and rewatch all of the videos.
