GCSE Physics Revision
Physics is the natural science that studies matter, its fundamental constituents, its motion and behaviour through space and time, and the related entities of energy and force. Physics is one of the most fundamental scientific disciplines, with its main goal being to understand how the universe behaves. A scientist who specialises in the field of physics is called a physicist.
Physics is one of the oldest academic disciplines and, through its inclusion of astronomy, perhaps the oldest. Over much of the past two millennia, physics, chemistry, biology, and certain branches of mathematics were a part of natural philosophy, but during the Scientific Revolution in the 17th century these natural sciences emerged as unique research endeavours in their own right. Physics intersects with many interdisciplinary areas of research, such as biophysics and quantum chemistry, and the boundaries of physics are not rigidly defined. New ideas in physics often explain the fundamental mechanisms studied by other sciences and suggest new avenues of research in these and other academic disciplines such as mathematics and philosophy.
Physics is a difficult subject, and many students have trouble with it. If you have a physics test coming up, however, you can do well with good study strategies. Use the RevisePal mobile app to practice your way to success. RevisePal offers all the tools you need to be successful in passing your upcoming GCSE exams. Go through our questions of the day at any time to get started with your exam preparation, browse our collection of articles to find methods, tools, best practices, and examples to maximise your learning. Finally, enjoy using the native mobile app, and before you know it, you'd have answered hundreds of questions, drilling the content into your memory.
Review problems that you had trouble with. While doing practice problems, you’ll probably encounter some that are difficult for you. This indicates that you’re weak in this particular area. Go back and review the concepts behind those problems. Understand why you’re getting them wrong, and how to find the right answer. This way, you’ll gradually work through the areas that you’re weak in.
