How to blast physics in WAEC

Physics is one of the main subjects that every science student must learn in secondary school. Being a science subject students recognize physics as a tedious subject. Physics is a subject that studies matter and its relationship to energy.
The physics exam in WAEC is divided into three parts which are Physics-Objective, Physics-Theory, and Physics-Practical. The Physics-Practical carries 40 marks, Physics-Objective and Physics-Theory carries 30 marks each. Adding the marks you will arrive at a total of 100 marks.
Therefore, the practical carries the highest marks. So it would be better for someone not to take his or her physics practical for granted. The success rate of scoring a good mark in the practice is high. As we move further I would be giving you tips on each part of physics.
However, getting an A1 in physics requires you to be able to read and understand physics concepts. So many students find it challenging to grasp the concept of any topic in physics, and as a result of this, they are not able to tackle Waec physics questions. They keep seeing Wassce physics questions as hurdles impossible to cross. I recently wrote an article on how to read and understand. I recommend you check my article on how to read and understand so as to pass the Wassce physics exam with an A1.
Also, time management is not only crucial during the preparation for an exam. It is very important when writing an exam too. I have seen students fail exams because they felt the time for the exam wasn't enough and as such, they could not attempt so many questions in the exam. This is the more reason you should check out my article on how to write exams and finish well on time.

Physics objective

The physics objective is a part of the exam in which the candidate is given an hour and fifteen minutes to finish the exam. The exam consists of fifty questions with four options each.

Some tips for physics objectives are;

  • Reading all the topics in physics under the WAEC syllabus because you can’t guess where the question might come from.
  • When you come across a question that you do not know or you don’t have a clue about, leave the question and answer the ones you know.
  • Then you can now answer the ones you do not know or have clue about.

Physics theory/Essay

Physics theory is also a part of the exam in which the candidate is given one and a half hours to finish the exam. The exam consists of two parts usually termed PART I and PART II. In PART I all the questions are compulsory but in PART II the candidate is allowed to three questions out of five questions. Note that the two parts are theory.

Some tips to prepare for physics theory/essay are;

  • Explanation is very important in this aspect because that is what theories are meant for.
  • Always check the marks for each question so that you can know how to answer.
  • If you are asked to list four things and the question carries eight marks. You should explain each item whether you are told to do so or not in the question.
  • Make sure you answer the necessary number of questions. Do not answer more or less.
  • Arrangement of questions is very important. It is important that you arrange your questions. For example, if you answer numbers 3a, 3b and 3c but you are not able to answer 3d. Make sure that you leave a blank space for that question. Do not answer the other questions like number 2 without leaving space.

Physics practical

The physics practical which carries the highest marks has three questions. The candidate is given three hours. In the physics practical, the candidates are allowed to choose only two questions and answers.
  • Clean and neat table of values is required for the practical
  • Carry out the practical with necessary precautions. Make sure you do so carefully.
