Newton’s third law states that for every action there is an equal opposite reaction. If we apply this same logic to studying physics, it stands to reason that the smarter you study, the more you’ll get out of the subject. I hope this guide gives you some tips and tricks to navigate this momentum gaining course. Newton’s third law states that for every action there is an equal opposite reaction.

How to prepare

Make sure to use the study desgin and maximise time by doing exactly what the study design tells you to do. 

Make summaries, which will act as an easy place you can refer back to throughout the year. 

Do questions to increase your confidence by answering as many questions as possible.

How to revise for exams

Make a killer cheat sheet. I made summaries throughout the year and then combined them all at the end of the year to act as my cheat sheet. 

Be familiar with your calculator. You should be using the same calculator you will use in the exam so that the right buttons and signs come naturally during the exam. 

Practice practice practice exams! There is no better way to study than by doing practice exams. After you've done them make sure to review the sample answers and assessor's report. 

Record every exam you do in a logbook. This really helped to see my progression as the exam day loomed closer and closer. 


Exam day

  1. Use reading time to get a feel for what topics are covered in the short answer. Then start answering multiple choice questions in your head. 

  2. Move on from multiple choice questions after 20 minutes. 

  3. Spend until you have 10 or 15 minutes left on the clock on the short answer. 

  4. Use the remaining time to check through your exam. 


Some final tips

  • Use your teachers
  • Help and be helped by your friends
  • Try to understand 
  • Enjoy Physics!

We hope you've gained something out of this study guide and ready to handle Physics 3/4. If you have any questions, please contact us.
