The A Level H2 Physics syllabus has been designed to build on the syllabus coverage at O-Level taken as a pure Physics or combined Science subject.
The development of the A Level H2 Physics curriculum is guided by these 3 elements:
Subject Assessment Objectives
A. Knowledge with understanding
B. Handling, applying & evaluating information
C. Experimental skills & investigations
Scheme of Assessment / Exam Format
Students are required to complete all 4 papers:
Type of Paper
Longer Structured Questions
2 h 30 min
This paper will consist of 30 compulsory multiple-choice questions. All questions will be of the direct choice type with 4 options.
This paper will consist of a variable number of structured questions plus one or two data-based questions and will include questions which require candidates to integrate knowledge and understanding from different areas of the syllabus. All questions are compulsory, and answers will be written in spaces provided on the question paper. The data-based question(s) will constitute of 20 – 25 marks.
This paper will consist of 2 sections and will include questions which require candidates to integrate knowledge and understanding from different areas of the syllabus. All answers will be written in spaces provided on the question paper.
This is a practical assessment of the following skill areas:
The assessment of PDO and ACE may also include questions on data-analysis which do not require practical equipment and apparatus.
Candidates will not be permitted to refer to books and laboratory notebooks during the assessment.

Students should be able to apply these mathematical topics in A level H2 Physics subject:
Are you starting to feel partly overwhelmed by the A Level H2 Physics topics and exam format? You don’t have to as there is always help available! At Concept First, we offer A level H2 tuition classes, including Physics practical classes. More than 95% of our students have achieved A1, A2 or B3 for their Physics subject, and 100% of our surveyed students said they would recommend Concept First teachers to their friends. You can read our A Level students reviews here.
Having taught more than 1000 students from over 90 schools all over Singapore and being the pioneer in offering Physics tuition practical lessons with a fully equipped Physics lab, we understand what works! Check out our Physics tuition classes here.

CF probably has the best Physics tutors in Singapore. They are able to explain difficult concepts clearly, as they provide short cuts and teach much easier methods of comprehending theory. Tuition is usually seen as a tedious and tiring activity but I always feel like their lessons pass very quickly as it is well-paced, suited to his students needs, and interesting at the same time. My Physics grades have improved from an S during mid-years to a B during prelims under their tutorship.

I always had much difficulty with Physics and found it a cumbersome and boring subject. But after attending Concept First Physics tuition class, I slowly understood it and finally got an A1 at the end! One thing I really appreciate about my tutors at CF is the fact that they cared for us all as individuals. When I was unsure about other subjects like A. Math, my tutors would stay back after class with me to clear my doubts. And for that, I’m really thankful!
