Can any explain to me what fleming's left hand rule is and the right hand rule as it makes no sense to me. Im in GCSE and doesn't understand what it symbolises/means/significance of it
The right hand grip rule reminds you which way the magnetic field points around a current carrying conductor.

Flemings left hand rule reminds you of the relationship between the direction of a magnetic field, an electric current and force. There's different versions of the left hand rule on the internet, seems to be an american one and a british one, so probably stick with the one you were taught in lessons or your textbook to avoid confusion.
