I Want To Be An Engineer But I’m Bad At Physics

If you want to be an engineer but you are bad at physics, then this is the right article for you. In this article, I will share with you what you can do about this, it’s the same thing I did to improve on physics.


The fact that you want a solution for this problem, you already know that physics is a very important subject for you to pursue engineering.


So, you are on the right path simply because you know what you want and you are going for it.


If you are bad at physics, it doesn’t mean that you can’t be an engineer.


Trust me, most of the people I went to college with weren’t that good at physics.


I’m not saying this to motivate you you can be an engineer even if you fail at physics.


This is to show you you can also do something about this subject and get to be who you want to be.


So, with that much said, let me share with you what you can do if you are bad at physics and you want to be an engineer.


The first thing you should do is to ask yourself why are you bad at physics.


If you want to solve a certain problem, the first thing you should do is to find out the cause of it.


So, finding out why you aren’t performing in physics will be the first step for you to know what you can do about this situation.


Are you performing poorly at physics simply because of your attitude towards it?


Is it because you don’t study the way you are supposed to?

 Are your friends distracting you from doing something about the subject?


Is it because you think that the subject is hard for you?


These are some of the questions you should ask yourself and find the answers to if you want to change this.


If you are not performing well at physics simply because you don’t study, then there is only one solution for that, and that is studying.


Take your time to study and this will change, and you won’t have to be concerned about being an engineer.


If you have a negative attitude towards the subject simply because of the teacher or your reasons then you should find a way to deal with that.


Change your mindset when it comes to that subject and get along with your teacher if it’s about a student-teacher relationship issue.


This will help you set up a ground for you to succeed in this subject.


Once you know the cause why you are not performing at physics then you will be able to perform the way you expect.


What I want you to know is that the students that you find to be geniuses simply because they pass at physics, that doesn’t come by luck or magic.


Those students spend their time studying and focusing on the right things about that subject.


That is the only way they get good grades in physics.


So, find a way you can fix your issue and you will eventually be performing better.


If you want to be an engineer, you have to love physics, this is because almost everything you will be doing will be based on physics.


The machines you want to learn how to maintain and operate they all work under the principle of physics.


Some topics that you learn currently you will find in some units of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and more depending on the option you will land on.


Get yourself comfortable with physics if you want to be an engineer, learn it and seek to understand it even deeper and you will get where you want to be.


If you don’t like physics at all, then you will never succeed in engineering.


The only thing you will have to do is to change the course you would like to pursue.


To be honest, when I was in high school there was a point I got an E in physics.


I had two options when I was in high school. I wanted to be a doctor or an engineer.


It clicked in my mind that if I was going to fail in biology or physics, then it will mess up my life.


I was very good at biology back then. I was among the top ten students in my school.


But I was performing poorly in physics.


I realized things will be hard for me in future if I don’t make it to be a doctor.


I focused my attention and energy on physics; I studied since I knew the only reason I used to fail was my laziness.


I took all the past papers and making schemes that the physics teacher had and I kept them. When the teacher was asking for someone who would want to be a custodian of the papers, I rushed for it.


These past papers and the making schemes helped me so much in knowing the things I never knew about, and it made me research even harder.


When I did my final exam, I found out that I was so comfortable tackling questions in that subject.


I later found out that I did better in physics than in biology. I decided to pursue mechanical engineering.


That is why today I’m sharing with you this story to motivate you and inspire you to do the right thing.


The only thing that made me pass physics and be able to be an engineer is the effort I put into studying physics.


I guess I put more focus on physics and forgot about biology. Don’t do the same mistake, learn to balance.


To summarize, if you want to be an engineer and you are bad at physics you should first find out why you are bad and try to change that, focus on solving the issues that make you bad at that subject and find a way that will make you pass that subject.


Change your mindset about physics and you will eventually feel the urge of you wanting to know more about it and this will result in your success.


Devote yourself to this subject and find a means you can make it seem easier for you and you will be an engineer.


Love physics because that is the core of engineering.
