I personally believe that the physics cafe has allowed me to have a clearer idea of the different kinds of questions and concepts that can be tested for every topic. And through all these lessons, i honestly think that I’ve improved by a fair bit since i joined because back in JC1 physics was like a guessing game whereby I used any formula from the back of my head, hoping to get the answer right, which usually doesn’t happen. After every lesson that I attend, I truly gain more confidence in Physics, as everything that seemed so difficult at first starts to get a little easier. And that If I were left on my own to study, I would probably spend hours and hours trying to figure it out. The difference between Physics cafe and my school is that everything is different. My teacher in school likes to dwell on a question for extended period of time. For example, he went through 1 Quantum MCQ from 2007 paper for more than an hour, not kidding. Sometimes, at the end of the lesson I’ll be equally or even more confused than before. However at Physics Cafe, I constantly feel on task and that Mr Sim is able to explain everything in a very different way such that things do seem easier, and the things that I learn in 1 lesson can equate to what I learn in a 2 weeks in school. Also, I believe that the grade A questions that we do weekly has allowed me to have a stronger skill in problem solving, and not just stare at the question empty mindedly. Honestly, the people at Physics Cafe definitely have a stronger grasp of concepts, and most are able to solve questions at a faster and more efficient way, as a result of the time practices that we’ve gone through.
