Course Concept

IGCSE Physics is a curriculum offered by the Cambridge Assessment International Education board. It is designed to provide students with a solid foundation in the fundamental concepts of physics and develop their scientific inquiry and problem-solving skills. The course covers a wide range of topics, including mechanics, electricity and magnetism, waves, energy, and thermal physics. It is divided in: 

  • Develop knowledge and understanding: The course aims to help students develop a deep understanding of key physics concepts, principles, and theories. Students will learn about the laws that govern the behavior of matter and energy and how they apply to various physical phenomena.
  • Apply scientific inquiry skills: IGCSE Physics emphasizes the development of scientific inquiry skills, including observation, measurement, experimentation, and data analysis. Students will learn to design and conduct experiments, collect and analyze data, and draw conclusions based on evidence.
  • Enhance problem-solving abilities: The course focuses on developing students' problem-solving skills in the context of physics. Students will learn to apply their knowledge and understanding to solve physics problems, both theoretical and practical, using mathematical and logical reasoning.
  • Foster practical skills: IGCSE Physics includes practical components where students engage in hands-on activities and experiments. These practical sessions allow students to develop their practical skills, including using scientific instruments, making accurate measurements, and interpreting experimental results.
  • Promote scientific literacy: IGCSE Physics aims to foster scientific literacy by helping students develop the ability to critically evaluate scientific information, communicate scientific ideas effectively, and understand the role of physics in everyday life and technological advancements.
  • Prepare for further study: IGCSE Physics serves as a foundation for students who wish to pursue further studies in physics or related fields at the A-levels or in higher education. It provides a solid grounding in the subject and equips students with the necessary knowledge and skills to continue their scientific education.

Frequently Asked Questions

Read some of the most commonly asked questions by parents and students
  • Who are the AP Guru tutors?
    expand_more

    We have hand-selected a small group of highly qualified tutors who have mastery over teaching and helping students in the programs they teach. Our tutors also need to have significant previous teaching experience and be very gifted, dynamic teachers.

  • Where are your Programs held?
    expand_more

    We conduct our programs online.

    Is this a live class? Will it be a group or private class?
    All our classes are live instructor lead classes. All our academic tutoring are only one-on-one.

  • Is this a live class? Will it be a group or private class?
    expand_more

    All our classes are live instructor lead classes. All our academic tutoring are only one-on-one.

  • When is the best time to get started?
    expand_more

    The earlier the better! When students come to us right before it is time to apply to college, there is only so much we can do. We can certainly help these students with score improvements and craft as compelling an application as possible, but we are given experiences and data points that cannot be altered.

    When students come to us early in their educational careers, we pair them with a counselor to help them develop as applicants, students, and people early on. We help students strategize early, build their profiles, and stand out from their peers. We help students explore and develop their academic interests, engage in unique and meaningful extracurricular activities, strengthen their personal qualities and leadership skills, and ultimately, position them to get into the best schools possible.

    It takes A LOT of hard work, strategy, determination, and self-reflection to get into the school of your dreams. At AP Guru, we are here, every step of the way, to help you get there.

  • Do test prep courses work?
    expand_more

    Yes! Standardized tests focus on a small, unique set of skills and topics. By knowing exactly what types of questions are on the test, a student gains a distinct advantage. Furthermore, a great tutoring company can build on this advantage by providing a highly individualized learning experience and a wealth of fantastic strategies for all types of students.  We have the evidence from thousands of students across 10+ years that great improvement is possible for nearly everyone.

  • Do you only help students who want to go to top schools?
    expand_more

    No. We know that each student is different and has unique goals and aspirations. Our focus is to help each student excel in the tests and exams they are preparing towards.

  • What kind of results should I expect?
    expand_more

    In terms of academic scores, for students not already at the top of the range, we typically want to see at least a 20 percentile rank improvement (the actual raw score this translates to varies across the scale). Going from the 50th to 70th percentile or from the 70th to 90th typically opens up a whole new range of schools for students.
