What My Students Have to Say

 

I have had a great session with my Physics Tutor. He is very knowledgeable and teaches me in a simple manner. He is the best Online Physics Tutor I have ever had.

Craig, Brunei

My daughter has understood Physics concepts so well after studying with you. Thank you so much

Desmond, California, USA

MThe Online Physics tutors here have immensely helped my daughter to do so well at AP Physics. She scored a 4 and I owe it all to the great preparation by the Physics tutors here.

About the IB Physics Exam  
The IB Physics exam is conducted for two levels:
  • Core Level. The students appearing for the Core Level exam are required to study the Subject Specific Core (SSC)

  • Higher Level (HL). The students appearing for Higher Level exam are required to study both the SSC and also the Additional Higher Level (AHL) material.

Also, there is a list of options for each subject from which two are chosen.

Duration of Exam:

S. No. Duration Weightage
SL HL
1 Paper 1 45 min 1 hour
2 Paper 2 1 hour and 15 min 2 hours and 15 min
3 Paper 3 1 hour 1 hour and 15 min
Assessment is carried out as follows:
S No. Assessment Weightage
SL HL
1 Internal assessment of the practical work 24% 24%
2 Paper 1 – Multiple Choice questions on the SSC 20% 20%
3 Paper 2 – Free Response questions on the SSC 32% 36%
4 Paper 3 – Free Response questions on the Options 24% 20%
  Total   100% 100%

Use of Calculators: 

Calculators are NOT PERMITTED for Paper 1.

However, calculators are PERMITTED as well as a formula booklet and periodic table is provided for papers 2 and 3.

Study Packages

The study packages for IB Physics Exam are available here. The packages can be customized as per your requirements.

Diagnostic Test. The students are first put through a diagnostic test to assess their strengths and areas where they may need greater emphasis.
