Physics is one of the most fundamental subjects of natural science which helps us understand why the universe behaves the way it does. In Physics, one studies matter (and its fundamental constituents like electrons, protons, neutrons), motion and behavior of matter through space and time, and the related concepts of force and energy. A scientist who specializes in the field of Physics is called a Physicist.
This core subject, fundamental to our understanding of the universe, is very vast and fascinating; and is like the mother of engineering and technology. However, given how advanced the human race has become, the level at which we study Physics in modern times requires a very good knowledge of Mathematics, mainly algebra, geometry, coordinate geometry, trigonometry and my favorite – CALCULUS! It is not possible to become good at Physics without a strong mathematics base.
So, a student aspiring to master Physics should note the following that are absolutely required:
(1) a good understanding of Math (Pre-Calculus & preferably Calculus too), and
(2) a mind that is really curious to understand the Natural Laws (of Physics), and how they run things in the world/universe around us
(3) sufficient humility to let go of the old patterns of memorizing content, and instead be willing to develop new mental abilities that can help you think out of the box (especially when it comes to problem solving abilities for competitive exams).
Lastly, one should not ignore nurturing other faculties (besides academics) that add light to our inner being. Remember, academic intelligence is just one part of human intelligence!
