Curriculum

H1 Physics (8866)


The syllabus has been designed to build on and extend the content coverage of Physics at ‘O’ Levels.

The content is the subset of H2 Physics. However, the difficulty and rigor of the subject will be equivalent to H2 Physics.

The syllabus consists of 5 sections and 11 topics:
Measurement
Newtonian Mechanics (Kinematics; Dynamics; Forces; Work, Energy and Power)
Waves (Wave Motion; Superposition)
Electricity and Magnetism (Current of Electricity; D.C. circuits; Electromagnetism)
Modern Physics (Quantum Physics)

There is no Practical Examination for H1 Physics.

H2 Physics (9749) Revised syllabus for 2016


The revised syllabus has been designed to build on and extend the content coverage of Physics at ‘O’ Levels.

The syllabus consists of 6 sections and 20 topics:
Measurement
Newtonian Mechanics (Kinematics; Dynamics; Forces; Work, Energy and Power; Motion in a circle; Gravitational Field; Oscillations)
Thermal Physics (Temperature and Ideal gases; First law of Thermodynamics)
Waves (Wave Motion; Superposition)
Electricity and Magnetism (Electric Fields; Current of Electricity; D.C. circuits; Electromagnetism; Electromagnetic Induction; Alternating Currents)
Modern Physics (Quantum Physics; Nuclear Physics)

Students will need to sit for a Practical Examination at the end of JC2. It is also noteworthy that under the new syllabus 9749, a Practical Examination (Paper 4) will replace the School-based Practical Assessment (SPA).

H3 Physics


H3 Physics will be offered only to JC2 students. The H3 Physics syllabus is designed around specific areas of specialization. Students can choose to take the course at either the National University of Singapore or the National Technological University.

Pre-requisites

  • Students intending to offer H2 Physics should have reasonably good knowledge and understanding of Pure Physics at ‘O’ level.  
  • Applicants should also have a strong interest in Physics and critical thinking, as well as, possess good mathematical skills, with distinction in  Additional Mathematics at ‘O’ level as a guide.

Students can refer to the full syllabus for H1 Physics (8866) and H2 Physics (9749) at the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board website (www.seab.gov.sg).

Pre-requisites for H3 Physics

Students intending to offer H3 Physics should simultaneously offer H2 Physics and possess a strong passion in the area of specialisation. Only students who obtain a high distinction in the H2 Physics promotional examination at the end of their JC1 course will be offered H3 Physics.
