Studies indicate that Secondary School Physics helps significantly to reduce the failure rate in university-level physics. Students themselves typically indicate that Secondary School Physics is a significant factor in their ability to handle university-level physics topics. Physics hones thinking skills. It is one of the few Secondary School level subjects that exercise both mathematical and verbal skills. Candidates are advised to pay close attention to this course, as it will take them beyond passing their exams.
At the end of this course, candidates should be able to:
1. Sustain their interest in physics;
2. Develop attitude relevant to physics that encourages accuracy, precision, and objectivity;
3. Interpret physical phenomena, laws, definitions, concepts, and other theories;
4. Demonstrate the ability to solve correctly physics problems using relevant theories and concepts.
