AP Physics Tutors in NYC

Advanced Placement (AP) exams are given every year in May, and are a great way to show universities that you can succeed in college level classes. Scoring a 4 or 5 on an AP can even earn you college credit, allowing you to skip certain introductory level courses!

The AP Physics exam is considered one of the most difficult APs. Not only do students need to understand abstract scientific principles, but they also need to perform complex mathematical equations. At Ivy Tutors Network, our Physics tutors are often graduate students at top-tier universities, or are working towards a PhD in Physics. Their depth of understanding and passion for Physics have helped countless students understand this sometimes difficult subject from both a conceptual and practical perspective. Whether you need help keeping up in AP Physics class, or want study tips for scoring a 5 on the exam, we’ve got your back!

What Happens If You Fail an AP Exam?
By Lisa Speransky
What Happens If You Fail an AP Exam?
You might be worried if you fail an AP exam (where failing is receiving a score less than 3), but don’t worry! Passing an AP exam has many benefits: you may receive college credit, it may help you win an AP Scholars award, and it may add to a larger picture of your academic success that can help you get into colleges. Failing an AP exam won’t grant you these advantages, but doesn’t carry any additional weight beyond that. You can certainly still get into colleges, however, you may need to take additional courses once you attend university than you would have with a passing AP score. It’s also worth noting that a failing AP score is evidence that you likely have not grasped the course material, and is an opportunity for you to rethink your study habits.

How to Study for the AP Physics Exam
Clocking in at 3 hours, the AP Physics 1 Exam is a difficult test that requires a mastery of physics concepts as well as a strong baseline understanding of algebra and trigonometry. It covers the scientific principles outlined in the AP Physics 1 course units, and expects students to use algebra to solve problems related to Newtonian mechanics, energy, and several other topics. With practice, however, even the most difficult topics become manageable, and with the right preparation, the exam can be easily conquered for a great score!
