Frequently Asked Questions

IB Physics Higher Level (HL) is one of the science courses introduced in the current IB Science curriculum (2016 - 2024). The Physics HL course is a traditional science course, whereby students develop a deep understanding of scientific concepts and solve both real and theoretical problems, with and without technology. The Physics HL course should be considered by students who are strong at science, and are interested in pursuing courses and pathways involving science or engineering after their IB Diploma Program.

The IB Physics HL course consists of four assessment items that contribute to a student’s overall score for the course. There are three exam papers and an internally assessed independent investigation. Paper 1 consists of multiple-choice questions, Paper 2 consists of short-answer questions, and Paper 3 consists of data-based questions, short-answer questions on practical experimentation, and short-answer questions from one option. The use of a calculator is prohibited for Paper 1 but permitted for Papers 2 and 3. A data booklet with useful constants and equations are provided for all three papers.

There are two phases students progress through in their two-year IB Physics HL course: the learning phase and the revision phase. The learning phase occurs in class, with their teacher and textbooks, where students first encounter and explore scientific concepts and consolidate their understanding by solving questions specific to that concept. The revision phase, which is what Revision Village is specifically designed for, is when students consolidate their understanding of all of the concepts in the Physics HL course and appreciate how the concepts are connected. In the revision phase, the most effective strategy is to practice lots of IB Physics HL exam questions to build confidence, reach mastery, and be prepared for the Physics HL examinations.

Revision Village is specifically designed to support IB students in the revision phase of their IB Physics Higher Level course. Revision Village has four main sections, each for different revision purposes: 1) Questionbank: a large library of IB Physics HL exam questions categorised by topic and ordered by difficulty, 2) Practice Exams: a carefully designed set of quizzes and mock papers for students to use in their final phase of revision, 3) Past Paper Video Solutions: step-by-step video tutorials of past Physics HL exam questions, taught by experienced IB Teachers, and 4) Key Concepts: short concise videos that recap the important theory in the Physics HL course. Revision Village is the perfect place for IB Students to learn, practice and prepare for their IB Physics exam stress-free, with all of the resources they need in one place.
