The Importance of Doing Well in Physics

Progressing from one Science subject in primary school, Physics is first introduced at the secondary level in Singapore’s education system. Students are taught from the very basic level and as they progress along their academic journey, specialisations are introduced and with that, the difficulty goes up. At Secondary 3, students will choose a subject combination to take on at ‘O’ Levels and those who wish to take up Physics will either take it as a Pure subject or combined with Chemistry. Students can then go on to take Physics at ‘A’ Levels and subsequently, in university.

There are many good reasons students may consider pursuing a degree in Physics. Even students who do not know the exact career path they wish to pursue yet can leave their options open by taking Physics at ‘A’ Levels. A career in science can be particularly rewarding, both in terms of job prospects and the potential to contribute to scientific research. Some examples of jobs Physics graduates can take up include academic researcher, metallurgist, clinical scientist and sound engineer. As technology continues to advance at a rapid pace, students will find that taking Physics at the secondary and JC levels gives them access to a wide range of opportunities.

However, students who decide to pursue Physics may face their fair share of challenges as they progress along their academic journeys. This is where they will have to make sure they build a strong foundation as doing well in Physics will contribute to a higher overall score in the ‘O’ and ‘A’ Levels. Here is where engaging an experienced Physics tutor can help, and there's no better place to start your search than with Tutor City. Take a look at our positive Google reviews and find out just what it is parents love about our service!

Common Challenges Faced By Students Of Physics In Singapore

While it’s true that each subject poses its own set of difficulties for students, Physics is a particularly challenging subject and many students all over Singapore face the same problems. When students are able to recognise and work on these areas of weakness, they will be better able to develop the skills and knowledge they are lacking. This, in turn, will gradually lead to an improvement in grades.

Below are some of the most common challenges faced by students of Physics in Singapore:


1. Visualising complex concepts

There’s no getting around the fact that Physics is a subject that works around a wide range of concepts. The first thing students have to do is understand how each concept works, and this can be hard if they have trouble visualising it. Here is where the utilisation of diagrams and the introduction of real-life examples can come in useful. The problem is that many students simply rely on their textbooks and the handouts they are given in class even if it does not work for them. With large class sizes, teachers may not have time to focus on each individual student and provide them with the materials they require to succeed.


2. Poor mathematical foundation

Physics is a subject that requires a strong mathematical foundation in order to excel in. Students who are struggling with Maths to begin with will find that Physics also poses a challenge for them. Unfortunately, there is no quick and easy way around this: students will have to work on their mathematical skills if they wish to pull up their Physics grade.


3. Lack of attention to detail, leading to careless mistakes

No matter how skilled and knowledgeable a student is, there’s always the danger of falling prey to careless mistakes. This can be caused by several factors, including inefficient time management, failure to memorise and apply formulae accurately, identifying the wrong variables, forgetting to convert to base units for calculation and lots more.


4. Poor time management skills

Even the best students can struggle with time management, resulting in them being unable to complete the paper on time. Despite possessing the skills and knowledge to answer questions accurately, this counts for nothing if students are leaving a significant number of questions unanswered and costing themselves valuable points. Students who struggle with this particular issue should conduct timed practices to ensure that they are able to obtain the maximum number of points within the allocated time.

Each student faces some of these challenges when it comes to Physics. Experienced tutors understand this and can individualise an approach to help students overcome the challenges they face.


Taking A Closer Look at the MOE Physics Syllabus at Various Levels

A number of topics are tested at ‘O’ Levels and ‘A’ Levels respectively. Students will need to familarise themselves with each one in order to score well. Very often, students will find that there are some topics they do better in and others they struggle a little more with. Here is where it helps to be strategic about revising.

Regardless of whether ‘O’ Levels students are taking Pure or Combined Physics, they will have to seat for three papers in total. In Papers 1 and 2, students will answer a range of multiple choice questions (MCQs) as well as structured and free response questions. Paper 3 consists of a practical assessment that will require students to integrate knowledge from different parts of the syllabus. Students will not be allowed to refer to any notes or textbooks throughout the assessment.

These are the topics covered under ‘O’ Levels Physics:

  • Measurement
  • Newtonian mechanics
  • Thermal physics
  • Waves
  • Electricity and magnetism
  • Radioactivity

As students move on to take Physics at ‘A’ Levels, they will also be required to complete a practical assessment, where they will be scored based on their ability to plan, measure, observe, present and analyse data.

These are the topics covered under ‘A’ Levels Physics:

  • Measurement
  • Newtonian mechanics
  • Thermal physics
  • Oscillation and waves
  • Electricity and magnetism
  • Modern physics
