The dictionary defines physics as “the study of matter, energy, and the interaction between them”, but what it really means is that physics is the investigation of fundamental questions and finding answers to them by observing and experimenting. Many complex phenomena that occur in nature can be explained using relatively simple mathematical equations. It is due to this fact that many find physics hard. The mathematical equations used in physics look far more complicated than they actually are. In this short piece of article, we will discuss five tips that will help you ace physics exam.
- Be Aware of the Syllabus
Understand the order in which the topics will be taught. Having some idea of the subject and being aware of what is next on the agenda will help you understand a lot more.
- Practice Question
The more you practise sample papers, the better you will understandand score better marks in the exam. Once you get an ample amount of practice, solving the sample papers, move on to the past year question papers.
- Understand the Basic Techniques For Answering Questions
Make sure to understand the basic principles of the topic. As you are aware, a lot of physics equations contain constants so try and memorise the basic constants. It isn’t necessary for you to be a great mathematician in order to be a good physician. But make sure to learn how to obtain equations and solve them.Do not ignore the units because they will help you understand how equations are put together.
- Independent Study
Constantly refresh your knowledge of physics that you have gathered and connect the previously learnt information to the newly gathered information. You will want to constantly keep reading throughout the year to avoid cramming at the end.
- Use Flashcards
Make a note of new words, general principles and units of measure that arise. This will help you follow the thread of theory and strengthen new information. Organise all the gathered information in flashcards and look at them whenever needed, reinforcing the information gathered. Use flashcards to memorise the examples of different concepts in physics such as the insulator examples.
These were the five tips to help you succeed in physics. Most importantly, don’t be afraid to ask doubts.
