New IGCSE Physics Syllabus from 2023 onwards

From 2023 to 2025, IGCSE Physics will follow a new syllabus which is about 10~20% different from the old syllabus. In this post, we would like to go through concepts which are removed from the new syllabus and new concepts added in.

First of all, here are concepts which are taken out of the syllabus.

  1. Digital electronics

2. Gas laws

3. Measurement of temperature

4. Pressure as measured by barometers or manometers

5. Thermal capacity

Digital electronics tend to be quite difficult for most students and they are not so related to other concepts in electricity, so they are taken out of the syllabus. This is a great news for many students, as all these logic gates are rather confusing.

For the topic on pressure, it becomes very light in contents. Now it only covers pressure due to solids and liquids. Barometers and manometers are no longer tested. For thermal physics, thermal capacity is taken out. However, specific heat capacity is still included in the syllabus.

Next, we look at new topics added. There is a new unit on space physics which is completely new for IGCSE physics. Here are new concepts added.

  1. Absolute scale of temperature

  2. Electromagnetic spectrum and the uses in communications

  3. Use of the kilowatt-hour

  4. Space physics

For IGCSE Physics students, please take note of the new topic on space physics. If you need help with Physics, please feel free to contact us through WhatsApp at +6596467611.
