Strengthen your Mathematical Skills! Physics questions require a great understanding of Mathematics and its terms, like if you need to derive an equation then you must have enough knowledge of Physics and Mathematical Calculations as well.

Focus on Simplifying Problems rather than making them more complicated! Try to simplify the problem as much as you can, soon you will get the correct result.

Solve at least 10-20 Physics questions daily! It will boost up your speed and fasten your thinking abilities.

Prepare Short Notes, and Learn through diagrams and Flowcharts! These notes are very helpful at the time of quick learning and revision.

Video lectures & Visual Study Techniques are great tools promoting conceptual learning. 

Ask Experts for Help! It’s always better to ask your problems rather than wasting your efforts in trying to solve them and getting no answer.
