Physics (0625)

|ˈfiziks|: the branch of science concerned with the nature and properties of matter and energy. The subject matter of physics, distinguished from that of chemistry and biology, includes mechanics, heat, light and other radiation, sound, electricity, magnetism, and the structure of atoms.

Physics is a relatively logical science that requires minimal memorization, at least at IGCSE level. If you look through past papers, you can see that all the questions are quite repetitive and all have a pattern to them. Once you’ve fully understood most things in the syllabus, to get that A* or 100%, all you need to do is conquer the mark scheme. They have specific wordings for definitions and answers to different types of questions, and what I find most effective when I revise for Physics is actually having the mark scheme beside me, then copying down the exact wording of answers even if I get the question correct. If the question asks for “Give one reason”, I try to give all the ones that may potentially end up on the mark scheme.

Things like that.

Physics is split up into five sections:

  1. General Physics/ Mechanics
  2. Thermal Physics
  3. Waves
  4. Electricity and Magnetism
  5. Radioactivity

  1. Hey ruru, your notes helped me to A* in all sciences last year. This year i am doing AS physics, chemistry and biology, and was just wondering if you have any notes on these? thanks. 🙂

  2. I’m just seeking information on igcse subjects to help my daughter. she’s writing her exams next year
