Studying Physics @ N5

Lots of people are scared of Physics and say it is too hard. I can’t claim that Physics will be the easiest subject that you can choose but I describe it like this.

“Some subjects that you choose will be like a walk in the park; very pleasant, quite straightforward, and not very strenuous.

Physics will be like climbing a mountain, hard going, challenging, and testing.


However, at the end of the day what would give you most satisfaction, sense of pride and achievement?

Are you up for a challenge or do you just want an easy ride?”


Summit Celebration

You can feel the sense of achievement in this photo.

You can experience that too-  choose Physics!

(the edited caption to the photograph above by Chris Morley says…

Summit Celebration People & snow. It’s a wonderful experience but a challenge for me to capture. Her happiness at reaching the summit of Guanaco was obvious. Taken on ‎April‎ ‎25‎, ‎2010)

Look at the inspiring quotes if you’re feeling a little low about your revision.

  1. Hi there Mrs Physics! I was wondering If you could perhaps compile some revision materials that would include the chosen topics and such for the test next Thursday. It would be greatly appreciated!
    Many Thanks
    Forgot my Mr men so you’ll need to guess!

  2. Hi Mrs Physics, I’m really sorry to bother you but i don’t suppose you have any other past papers i could use for my revision for the upcoming Properties of Matter test. I seem to have finished the all of the other ones. If not that will be fine but it would be gladly appreciated ?

    Sorry Again

    Mr Chatterbox

    P.S (I remembered this time)

  3. I’ve been using the Nat 5 revision questions on dynamics and space to study for an upcoming test. I was going to check my answers but realised that they are protected with a passcode. I was wondering if it was possible for me to access the answers and any other way and receive the passcode.

    Many thanks.
