While you wait for your books to be delivered, read our top tips on how to prepare for your Physical Sciences examination below…

  1. Start with the basics

Physics has a lot of fundamental theories from which everything else develops. It is therefore expected that the problems you will have to solve in the examination will be grounded on these essential concepts or a variation of these. Make sure that you understand the fundamental theories.

  1. Brush up on your Mathematics skills

If you are studying Physical Sciences, then you will see that it integrates a lot of mathematical elements. This means that you would master Physical Sciences if you were proficient at undertaking multiple formulas and problems. Give attention to Mathematics alongside your Physical Sciences as this will help you improve your understanding of the formulas and concepts.

  1. Make it simple

Try to streamline the situation as much as possible. The examination question may seem problematic at first but take another look and reconsider. You will come to the realisation that it is easier than you initially thought. It is important to remain calm and to try to bring the problem to a situation which you are familiar with by simplifying it in your mind.

  1. Draw!

A great way to implement the point above is through drawings. Drawings can be critical in order to comprehend and study. Whenever you can, make a drawing to illustrate a concept.

  1. Use Physics flashcards

Take note of new words, units of measure, general principles and other concepts that arise. This will help you follow the sequence of a theory and reinforce the new information which will have a constructive effect when challenged with problem solving.
