FAQ

  • Who can attend this course?

    This course is for Sixth Form students who have the passion and ambition to get the most out of their Physics A-Level. If you are a student who is slightly older or younger than these guidelines, then please do get in touch to discuss your specific situation. There is no application process, and you can secure your place simply by clicking “Register Now” and following the payment instructions. Places are filled on a first-come first-served basis and are limited in number.

  • Can I join after the start date?

    Yes, if a space becomes available. If you choose to pay for the course in full, you will have access to all the course materials for 365 days from the date of purchase. If you choose the monthly subscription, you will have access to all of the course materials until the end of the month which has been paid for.

  • How do I join the Livestream?

    After you have registered, you'll receive a welcome email containing a Zoom link plus a password and full joining instructions. Please keep an eye on your junk email folder!

  • Do I have to attend all of the sessions?

    It should go without saying that 100% commitment is required in order to derive maximum benefit from the classes. As such, it is highly recommended that you do not miss a session as you may be required to utilise knowledge and concepts from a previous class at any given time. Refunds are not issued for missing a livestream. Please note that there is a total of 36 livestreamed lessons on this course.

  • What happens if I miss a livestream or want to watch a replay of the lesson?

    We understand that unforeseen circumstances such as illness do arise, so you can catch up using the video recordings as well as the online resources. Within 24 hours of a lesson being livestreamed, a video file will be added to the course page ready for you to watch again.

  • Are the dates and times of the livestreams adjustable?

    No, the dates and times are fixed. If Rumel is unable to tutor on any particular day then you will receive as much notice as possible. In such circumstances, a pre-recorded tutorial will be uploaded to the website for you to follow.

  • Do I get my money back if I decide to quit the course?

    We offer a no hassle 14-day money back guarantee. If at anytime within the first 14 days you don't feel the course is for you, simply send us an email letting us know you want a refund and we'll process it. It's as simple as that!

  • Can I pay in installments?

    Yes, absolutely. Payment can either be made for the entire course (one off payment of £399) or by monthly subscription (£59/month). Whether you choose to pay in full or monthly, please note that you will not be able to access any of the materials until payment has been received by us in advance.

  • What methods of payment do you accept?

    Our website accepts all major credit/debit cards as well as PayPal. Alternatively, you can pay directly into our account. Please email us for our account details.
