I’m going to appear in Oct-Nov O-levels exams this year and now I’m really nervous about the ATP. Can someone please share some resources and tips for CHEM, BIO and PHYSICS ATP? I’ll be extremely grateful :(

first of all read the question well ,because sometimes the answer we are writing might not be what they expect .In addition to that there is nothing much to worry about ,but in chemistry ,make sure that you do the titration carefully ,because if one mole question is wrong ,all the others go wrong too. in biology make sure your magnification and drawings are correct .make sure you study the food tests for like reducing sugar and starch and protein .good luck for your chemistry paper which is on the 1 of October .May you achieve all your goals =)

thank you so much for the help and wishes!! i really hope I do well :D
do you have any tips for physics atp as well?

Physics ATP is probably the easiest out of the three. You just need to know how to record basic calculations from figures that are provided to you. For example, you might be asked to record the voltage from a voltmeter, or temperature from a thermometer. Make sure you know how to draw circuits (series or parallel). There is also the 7 mark design an experiment question, in which you need to mention the procedures, precautions, and they usually ask you to draw a table too. Finally, there's the graph question, which is pretty easy too. All you need to do is choose an appropriate scale for both axes and then plot the graph. This is for Cambridge IGCSE Physics 0625 btw. Hope this was hopeful :)

Thank you so much for your response!!

I have one question though. How do we attempt the designing the experiment questions? They look really intimidating and i am never able to figure out how to solve them :(

The question might seem hard, but it's actually pretty easy when you divide it up into separate parts. The first part should be about how the experiment is to be carried out. For example, if you're asked to design an experiment to investigate the effect of different materials on the rate of cooling (just an example). You should begin by using two (or more) different materials of the same size. Then heat both materials to a specific temperature (say 60 degrees celsius for both. They must be heated to the same temperature to obtain accurate results). Then you record the temperatures every 30 seconds for about 10 minutes (again, just an example) using a stopwatch. Then you should mention the precautions. This is a pretty important part of your answer. The precautions are needed to make sure that the results obtained depend on the variable you changed ( in this case it is the different types of materials), and not any other variables. Following up on the example, the precautions, in this case, would be things like the same initial temperature, the same mass of materials used, and so on. Repeating the experiment to obtain the average is also a good point to mention in this part of the question. Then you have the table part. They usually only require you to label the headings (with the units ((very important)) ), and you're not required to fill in the table itself. I hope I didn't miss out on any part. If I did, or if I have made any mistakes, please correct me. Hope this helps

PS. this is a really useful video for Physics ATP. You can also check their channel out they have some pretty good videos on solving past papers.

how was it? i mean the chemistry paper?
you had that today right?
physics mainly they give an experiment and asks you to basically measure something and note down the value and then use that value in an equation. moreover they give a graph which is going to be there 100 percent . make sure you label the axis and the points and everything .good luck, make sure you are very careful. ignore anymoulous points

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THESE TIPS !!! These were super helpful. I had my atp exam a few days ago and I think it went well. I really hope I get good grades :')

sorry for the late response, i think i did well. the questions were somewhat easy but i did get stuck on a few for a while. i really hope i get a good grade :"))

again, thank you SOO much for your help! ❤
