8 Steps to Ace that Planning Question

The Planning Question is the last question on Paper 2 of the 9646 H2 Physics paper in the Singapore-Cambridge GCE A-Levels. It carries 12 marks out of 72 in the paper, which lasts 1 hr 45 min. Based on the principle where ratio of marks should be roughly equal to ratio of time allocated, the question should take about 17.5 minutes to complete typically. However the reality is that students tend to spend too much time on the theory questions and more so on the data analysis question which precedes the planning question, leaving insufficient time to properly answer what is arguably the most important question in the paper.
