In local secondary schools, science is a mandatory subject that must be taken by students, either as a Combined Sciences subject or as a Pure Sciences subject. Due to the extensive range of applications that physics can be used for, it is often taken with Biology or Chemistry as a Combined Sciences subject. However, students that are confident in mastering physics at the ‘O Levels’ standard may choose to pursue it as a Pure Physics subject instead. Pure Sciences have a more substantial amount of content that a student has to be familiar with, due to the additional chapters that will be covered. Additionally, Pure Sciences students are required to have a deeper understanding of sections that are also included in Combined Sciences.
For Pure Physics, students in Singapore are required to take three papers that comprise of multiple-choice questions, structured questions and the Science Practical Assessment (SPA). Sections include Measurements, Newtonian Mechanics, Thermal Physics, Waves and, Electricity and Magnetism. While the same sections are also covered in Combined Sciences, Pure Physics have topics like Electromagnetic Induction under the Electricity and Magnetism section that are not included in Combined Sciences. Furthermore, Pure Physics questions may not be as direct as those in Combined Sciences, requiring students to be more analytical when deciphering and answering the questions. Unsurprisingly, the rigour required to master Pure Physics at the ‘O Levels’ standard may be challenging for some students, especially those that may have lost interest in the subject. An experienced tutor in Singapore will be able to guide the students and regain their lost interest, motivating them to score better results.
Due to his expertise in Physics, Mr Phang is an excellent tutor who can guide a student from his or her ‘O Levels’ to ‘A Levels’ and even H3. Many ‘O Levels’ students have benefitted from the continuity that he offers, allowing them to score better results in their examinations. His wealth of knowledge has helped him to have mastery over the topics tested, giving him the ability to craft analogies that will help the students to understand concepts better. Secondary school students that think Physics is a dull subject will be pleasantly surprised by Mr Phang’s sense of humour during tuition lessons, helping to make the subject seem more interesting. Even when they are under pressure during the actual examinations, students can recall the knowledge they have gained from Mr Phang’s humour anecdotes, and perform to their expectations.
