3. O Level Physics involve a lot of mathematical calculations, and this apply to A-level too. If you are struggling with Math, it is likely that you will also struggle with Physics too. Somehow there is some correlation. As you go on into higher learning, Math and Physics will become more inter-related, especially in subject like Applied Mathematics.

4. It will take a lot of discipline and effort, as well as time to learn Physics. If you are not willing to in the time and effort for the subject, then chances are you are not likely to excel in the subject.

5. Find a good Physics tutor who can act like a mentor to you. His passion, knowledge and experience to impart the concepts with in a crystal clean way, it will be of great help.
