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 SAT Physics Exam  
About the Exam

SAT Physics is a multiple choice physics exam of one hour duration pitched at easy-medium level.

Duration: 1hr 

Number of questions: 75 

The SAT Physics Test is divided into two parts, part A and part B as follows:

Part A:

  • First 12 or 13 questions.
  • 4 groups of 2 to 4 questions each.
  • The questions within any one group all relate to a single situation.
  • 5 possible answer choices are given before the question.
  • An answer choice can be used once, more than once, or not at all in each group.

Part B:

  • Last 62 or 63 questions
  • Each question has 5 possible answer choice with 1 correct answer
  • Some questions may be in groups of 2 or 3

S. No




1 Mechanics Kinematics, Dynamics, Energy and Momentum, Circular Motion and Rotation, Vibration and Simple Harmonic Motion, Gravity 35%
2 Thermal Physics Temperature and Heat, Kinetic Theory, Thermodynamics 10 %
3 Electricity and Magnetism Electric Fields, Forces Potentials, Magnetic Fields and Forces, Electric Circuit, Electromagnetic Induction 25%
4 Waves General Wave Properties, Doppler Effect, Reflection and Refraction, Interference, Diffraction, Polarization, Ray Optics 20%
