Often, students who face problems understanding physics also struggle with mathematics. Physics itself is a combination of several mathematical theories and basic concepts. Therefore, mastering mathematical theories will greatly help you during your physics exams. This is an essential factor for many subjects, including mathematics, chemistry, biology, especially physics.
Using a systematic approach while studying for your physics exams is not only a smart time-saving trick, but it can make a considerable difference, you probably don't realize it now. However, it's never too late, start by first organizing all of your worksheets and notes. If necessary, incorporate flashcards into your study routine. This way, your memory skills will work better and you'll remember a lot of things you couldn't before.
Sometimes, the root of your physics problems, as was my case, lies in rusty or even non-existent mathematical skills. And, unfortunately, the more you advance in physics, the more you will encounter mathematical processes that you thought you had left behind. Yes, I'm talking about you, algebra, trigonometry and calculus. Take care of significant numbers when answering your questions.
This is very important and most students don't know it. If you can't write your answers to a certain number of significant figures, you lose the answer marks (A: Usually, the number of significant digits in the given data is a guide to the number of significant digits needed in the answer. However, avoid premature rounding during the calculation, as this could result in an incorrect answer. Thus, for example, for data quoted at 2 significant digits, the answer must also be 2 significant digits, and the intermediate calculations must be 3 or 4 significant digits.
Apart from that, you can use the notes and flashcards of the Physics and Mathematics tutors to review level A physics. Whether you're studying for the GCSE or you've moved up to A levels, finding the best way to review for you is key. You may have selected A-level mathematics and physics; if so, reviewing mathematics along with the physics sub-topic Measures of Physical Quantities might not be a bad idea. I recommend that you ask topical Level A physics questions for OCR, AQA, WJEC, CIE, Edexcel as soon as you finish reviewing a chapter of your notes.
Here I will share with you tips and tricks that helped me review my Level A Physics and get an A* in it.
