76% of our students who achieved distinction for O and A Level Physics also attended our Physics Lab Sessions
In order to achieve a Distinction in Physics, excelling in the practical component is paramount. Practical skills are acquired through hands-on experience, and cannot be honed through pen and paper alone. Unfortunately, students are often constrained by limited time and laboratory slots in schools, resulting in inadequate exposure and practice. With the Practical exams looming, students may suddenly realise that they have only a few opportunities left to prepare adequately.
In a typical school setting, the O and A Level Physics syllabus is densely packed, leaving limited time for practical sessions. As a result, students may not receive the necessary hands-on practice that is crucial for achieving success in the subject. It’s no surprise that many students express their anxiety about the insufficient time and attention given to lab work until the final moments leading up to the exams. The question remains, can students feel confident when they do not receive adequate training and practice for their assessments?
In addition to the limited time and attention given to hands-on practice, students often struggle to get the support they need to succeed in practical components. Many report having to rely on their own problem-solving abilities and feeling unable to get help from their school teachers when needed. This can lead to uncertainty and doubt about whether they are using the correct techniques and approaches in their experiments. At Concept First, we understand the importance of hands-on practice and provide personalized guidance and support to ensure our students are confident and capable in their practical skills.
During the crucial period leading up to the national exams, schools restrict access to their labs, leaving students without opportunities for practical sessions, which are essential for maintaining learning momentum. These challenges are similar to those faced by our graduates, and could be what your child is experiencing now. At Concept First, we understand the importance of practical learning, which is why we have invested in a state-of-the-art Physics Lab to provide our students with the best possible facility and support. Each student has access to their own equipment, ensuring the best practical learning experience in Singapore.
At CF, we spare no expense to procure the most advanced and top-notch lab equipment. Our in-house lab tech team ensures that all equipment is well-maintained, giving our students the confidence of using equipment that not only meets but also exceeds the O and A Level standards.
Unlike varying instructions provided by different schools, CF’s lab manual is a one-stop resource that is accurate, curated, and comprehensive. Over the past 5 years, we have conducted lab classes for hundreds of students from various schools, gathering enough data to create this reliable manual, which will prepare you for your practical exams.
You do not have to share lab apparatus with other students in our lab. Our state-of-the-art lab equipment is in prime condition, and you have enough time to play around with them to gain crucial experience and skills. Our lab tutors are available to guide you throughout the process, and you can make mistakes in a supportive and safe environment.
