Frequently Asked Questions
What is the IB Physics HL Questionbank?
The IB Physics HL Questionbank is a comprehensive set of IB Physics exam style questions, categorised into syllabus topic and concept, and sorted by difficulty of question. The bank of exam style questions are accompanied by high quality step-by-step markschemes and video tutorials, taught by experienced IB Physics teachers. The IB Physics HL Question bank is the perfect exam revision resource for IB students looking to practice IB Physics exam style questions in a particular topic or concept in their IB Physics Higher Level course.
Where should I start in the Physics HL Questionbank?
The IB Physics HL Questionbank is designed to help IB students practice Physics HL exam style questions in a specific topic or concept. Therefore, a good place to start is by identifying a concept that you would like to practice and improve in and go to that area of the Physics HL Question bank. For example, if you want to practice Physics HL exam style questions covering Momentum & Impulse, you can go to Physics HL Topic 2 (Mechanics) and go to the Momentum & Impulse area of the question bank. On this page there is a carefully designed set of IB Physics HL exam style questions, progressing in order of difficulty from easiest to hardest. If you’re just getting started with your revision, you could start at the top of the page with the easiest questions, or if you already have some confidence, you could start at the medium difficulty questions and progress down.
How should I use the Physics HL Questionbank?
The Physics HL Questionbank is perfect for revising a particular topic or concept, in-depth. For example, if you wanted to improve your knowledge of Forces, there are over 20 IB Physics HL exam style questions focused specifically on this concept. Alternatively, Revision Village also has an extensive library of Physics HL Practice Exams, where students can simulate the length and difficulty of an IB exam with the Mock Exam sets, as well as Physics HL Key Concepts, where students can learn and revise the underlying theory, if missed or misunderstood in class.
What if I finish the Physics HL Questionbank?
With an extensive and growing library of full length IB Physics HL exam style questions in the Physics HL Question bank, finishing all of the questions would be a fantastic effort, and you will be in a great position for your final exams. If you were able to complete all the questions in the Physics HL Question bank, then a popular option would be to go to the Physics HL Practice Exams section on Revision Village and test yourself with the Mock Exam Papers, to simulate the length and difficulty of an actual IB Physics HL exam.
