To have A* in Cambridge A level CIE physics isn’t difficult as you may think, all you need is adequate preparation and productive reading. It requires personal development which is crucial to one’s success in life. It is all about adding the required or needed values that enhance personal academic growth.
Tips to excel
(1) Be inquisitive – Ask the right questions in class. It is when you ask that you get answers, clarity, and understanding
(2) Relate with your colleagues that are intelligent – Get around people that are ahead of you academically. Whenever important topics are been discussed by your colleagues, always find your place around them. From my personal experience, sometimes studying alone may be boring or not interesting but when you get around friends discussing a particular topic, a level of interest rise up in you. There is a level of challenge you get that will propel you to read. It is that fuel that will make that particular topic interesting. In some cases, the reason why some of us read at times is that we heard some people discussing a topic that we know little or nothing about. This leads to a hunger to know more about the topic. In summary being close to people that are ahead of you academically can be of help to your personal growth.
(3) Get enough materials on physics expecially the ones recommended by CIE – Different materials have a way in which they discuss different topics. And the more the available materials you have the better your understanding in that area. It is possible that you may not get a satisfactory explanation from a textbook but having more than one textbook will give you an option to check other’s views.
(4) Determination and consistency – People who are successful aren’t people who have only motivation but are consistent and determined in their motivation.
