Frequently Asked Questions
Will the H2 Physics program prepare its students for the practical and experimental design questions in A-Level Physics Paper 4 (weightage of 20%)?
Experimental design and planning section of physics paper 4 will be covered as part of our program curriculum. There will also be demostrations of various practical at the class level. Stations will be set up for students to have some hands-on session.
Beyond that, our students may also sign up for extra practical sessions with their tutor, however charges do apply.
How is Orion Tuition Centre’s H2 Physics program different from other tuition centres
There are two key ingredients for any effective program, the quality of the tutors and the program curriculum. The tutors at Orion Tuition Centre have an excellent skillset, track-record, and experience. We also boast one of the most comprehensive physics program in the industry. Our curriculum ensures that our students are well prepared even for practical exam. Practical examination preparation is something very few tuition centre offers. To provide our students with an edge in the A Levels examination, we have an extensive array of resources. They include practical guide, online video lectures, exam focused past year questions and more. A free sample of our physics summary guide is available for download below.
I am concerned with the order of topics as it differ from JC to JC, will Orion Tuition Centre’s curriculum be suitable for me?
The difference in topics for JC2 H2 Physics is minimal as compared to JC1. Thus there is no pressing concern for JC2 students.
For JC1 classes, our tutor will exercise flexibility in various ways:
- limiting the class size
- breaking up the class
to best prepare students for promotional exams. In some cases, especially closer to promotional exam period, we may also reject the enrolment of students if we do not have a suitable class for them.
I am concerned with the order of H2 Physics topics, where can i find out about Orion Tuition Centre lesson class lesson plan?
We do not publish our lesson plans online as class curriculum is dynamic and tailored to each class. As such, usually, there are no two classes that are doing the exact same thing. We do this so that we can cater to the different learning pace of students.
For example, if 80% of the class find themselves comfortable wth Topic A, Topic A will be given less emphasis, this allows the 20% of the students to catch up with the topic, yet still value-adds the 80% of the class. During subsequent revision phases, our tutors will introduce more challenging questions on topic A for the class.
This is one of the many planning considerations we adopt at Orion Tuition. For a program to be effective, it has to be dynamic and our tutors are willing to adapt to ensure optimal results for our students.
I am interested to enroll into the JC2 H2 Physics class, will I miss out on the earlier JC1 topics??
There are various mechanism in placed to ensure all topics (i.e. inclusive of all JC1 syllabus) are adequately cover and all weaknesses are addressed.
Our H2 physics curriculum balances between the revision of JC1 topics and the introduction of JC2 topics. Revisions will be done in phases for J1 topics with increasing difficulties. Varying depths of physics concepts will also be built in these phases.
In addition, from time to time there will be extra sessions for some of the J1 topics. Our students can opt-in for these extra sessions. There are also online lessons which are student can leverage on.
How big is the H2 Physics class size? I am concern with the lack of opportunities to consult and seek clarification.
Our max class size is about 12 students. Priority will be given to questions related to the topics being covered in the lesson.
Students who want to seek help for their school work can highlight it to our tutors. We will be glad to offer assistance beyond scheduled lesson time. Just ask kindly if you need help, we never turn students away.
