How do I even begin to explain how terribly stressful this subject has been? First off -- covering 30 chapters (2 years worth of physics) in 12 short weeks is close to impossible. Worst yet, the lecturers were mostly terrible at explaining complex ideas and instead I found Khan Academy and Chegg to be my most useful resources. Besides, pracs were hardly interesting, and quite often topics in pracs were not covered in lecture content, making it a common thing for people to turn up to pracs with no clue of what they're doing whatsoever. Besides, DO NOT rely on exam resources as your practice & study material at the end of semester, because answers are often very incomplete, and the formula sheet is just a mess of all formulas lumped into 2 sheets of paper. TIP: label formulae on your own copy of the sheet with the topics they relate to throughout the semester, or you'll end up with a bunch of formulae you have but cannot use since you don't know what they mean.

IMO not as bad a subject as people make it out to be, but still, more to be complained about than praised. Pracs weren't that interesting, I didn't really learn much, and the marks were really dependent on your demonstrator. In class demonstrations were pretty cool but I feel like they were added merely to prevent people from falling asleep. I did not find them helpful at all for the final exam. Tutors were really helpful though, remember to make use of them. Another tip: Khan academy + do tut and practice exam questions

A 'messy' subject in general. Pracs were initially very stressful but you sort of get the hang of it after a few pracs. We didnt really get valuable feedback on lab reports making it hard to understand exactly why we were losing marks. Prac marks also depend a lot on who your demonstrator is. The take-home prac felt quite unnecessary since some of us did it before the theory was covered in lectures, but I have to admit, it was sort of fun. Homework assignments, although tedious and took me hours to do, actually did help in making sure we looked over the content. (didnt ensure that we understood it though). Some tutors, I've heard, were so good you didnt even have to go for lectures, and others, like mine, were completely useless and only added to the confusion. I would highly recommend a study group. The exam was tough, (except for the questions that were repeated from previous exams) but the scaling was a life saver and the reason I was able to scrape a H1.

Wow, I don't even know where to start from, this subject is truly a nightmare. This course is extremely poorly organised. This course is intended to make us GAMSAT ready by teaching VCE physics but I think while organising this course, they forgot that VCE kids had 2 years to study the content we are expected to learn in 12 weeks and 3 hours each week given none of us had any kind of physics background but all of us are doing biomedicine which in itself is pretty stressful. First lecturer (week 1 to week 6) just read a list of formulas out of slide without actually explaining any concept. They just skipped over vectors which I believe is the foundation of physics and therefore I was struggling from day 1. Practical classes were no good either. The fact that we had to write an entire lab report in 2.5 hours was very exhausting. These classes just compounded extra stress as everyone was mainly focused on writing as much as possible before the time runs out. My demonstrator marked our reports extremely harshly on top of all this. Chem labs were 1000 times better than this.

Most horrible and challenging subjects throughout the semester. Good luck.

Really horrible subject. I believed I would have enjoyed physics if this were run better, but it was really atrocious. As said before answers weren't given to some practice exam questions and when there were answers there were numerous mistakes. The first lecturer was absolutely terrible and wouldn't explain anything + wouldn't put up the slides before the lectures. As someone who annotates the slides to save time, this meant that I stopped going to lectures and fell really behind. I decided to use the textbook to learn and this was far superior to the lectures but was still hard to understand with no physics background. My tip is to buy someone's summary notes and just work from them. Oh, and the exam recycled the questions from past years (even a 14 mark essay which I purposely didn't study as "it was on last year's so it won't be on this year's!!"~~wrong!) Overall terrible subject, just teach yourself.

Practice exam answers included: "see lecture slides". Yeah, that sums up the subject. Pity that the subject was so poorly run. I feel like I could have enjoyed physics otherwise. Lectures were often confusing. Lecture slides were hard to understand. Tutor was really bad.

Worst run subject in my opinion. Content was interesting but the delivery of the content made it extremely difficult to succeed and do well. Sometimes I was better off staying at home and learning the content myself.

Can be overwhelming for students who haven't studied physics in VCE. Definitely not an easy subject to cram for so make sure you keep on top of things!

Awesome subject!
