Abstract: It is quite common for many students to complain about having to study physics. Some clearly state that it is not a subject of their interest and even more find understanding physics to be beyond their capability. The rate of failure in the subject is quite high. As can be seen from the results in the SEC physics 1996 May session, about half the students (47%) did not get the required pass mark to proceed with their studies. In addition, most of the grades were in the 4-5 region, showing that performance was not of a high standard
