Hey guys, I'm from Singapore and currently in J1(11th grade). I've been doing competitive physics since I was in Sec 3( 9th Grade) and am going to be participating in the senior physics olympiad, which will determine whether I go for national training, which will determine whether I go for IPhO/APhO or not. I've also won a gold medal at the Singapore Junior Physics Olympiad, just for some background. Basically, what I've covered thus far includes everything in introductory physics and everything in single variable calculus and multivariable calculus, with quite a large bit of differential equations. I left out some parts of differential equations purposely because, even though I want to learn them, I want to stay quite focused on physics olympaid and what is required for that. As I've said before, my introductory physics is very solid and I've moved quite a bit into specialized books for each topic. That is, I'm using specific books for electromagnetism, classical mechanics etc. I'm also in the habit of doing loads and loads of problems, so I'm not afraid of putting in effort in order to achieve my goal. Based on the above information, I have three questions; 1. What else do I need to do in order to make sure that I do make it into the IPhO/APhO team from my country, given the fact that I have to be at that level by the time I go for national training, which will be sometime in January this year, assuming I get past the senior olympiad first? 2. Is there any Singaporean on this website who is also going to go for physics olympiad and wants to do a collaboration with me? (Message me for details) 3. Lastly, would it be possible for anyone who has formerly participated in IPhO and APhO to correspond with me privately so I can discuss a couple of things and ask questions as and when I may need help? Currently, I have no one to turn to for help when I reach a conceptual roadblock or a problem solving roadblock(these occur more often than the former) and it would be absolutely brilliant if someone could help me. I'm dedicated to getting into the teams because I'm a competitive person and also because I love physics. I do consider the international olympiads as a way to test my own capability as a physics lover and to also meet other people who love the subject just as much as I do and are not afraid to show it.
