Prior Knowledge For Physics HL

Recommended Posts

Hey IB fellows,

I will be beginning IB the next school year(after this summer), and have learned a lot about the IB and its benefits.

I will be taking the Physics course at a higher level hoping to score a 7 at it, but i wanted to take your advice as to how to prepare for it in the summer. I do not want to study chapters of it, since it will be wasting my time, i would like to know what prior knowledge can i learn this summer to prepare me very well for physics at HL. Perhaps basic physics or basic information about certain topics, i do not know, and that's why i am asking you, former HL students to help me achieve the best score and prepare well for it in this summer.

You don't need any background knowledge for any IB subject, especially not for physics. They will start off at a very basic level and move on from there. Just enjoy your summer :) 

Yes, you are not required to know anything prior to taking physics. I do think that if you learn some vectors it might help you throughout the course. But don't worry too much.
