While you study for the Physics subject test of GRE you must keep in mind that you shall have to solve some problems based on mathematics. For this you need to have sound knowledge of the methods of mathematics mentioned above. It is better to practise the related numerical problems while you are going through the theory. This way solving the numerical problems shall assist you in grasping the concepts and also your learning. Since you shall appear for an objective test you have to concentrate on exactness. Mere superficial knowledge of facts will not suffice; you shall have to study in depth.

Besides, some questions in the Physics subject test require interpretation of information from figures. Some of the figures might be new to you, though based on familiar concepts. Hence you must be mindful about going through the graphs and figures while revising all the related concepts. Many a times we tend to ignore the figures if we have a clear understanding of the concept, here you can not afford to do that.

In case you are not confident about studying for this test on your own you could study in groups with your friends. This will greatly help you since you will be more regular and focused towards your aims. Or else you could seek professional help available at coaching institutes. Such institutes give guidance for the  test through experts in the field and they offer a variety of programs for you to choose from. You could study online, study in classrooms or hire a private tutor for the purpose. But these options are costly and are not affordable by many. Hence you should choose an option that is within your budget as well as substantial.

Since the Physics subject test is administered in the paper format it is easy for you to navigate through the paper. You can start with the questions which are easy and then take up the difficult questions. Read every question with full concentration, ponder over it, mark the answer confidently and then forget about it. Deliberate on each question so that you don't have to get back to it again. This will save you time. Further, all the questions in the Physics test are of equal weightage, so you must endeavor to answer the ones which you know carefully and correctly.

The scores in the test are calculated in two steps. Firstly, the raw scores are calculated and then the scaled scores are calculated. One fourth of the total number of questions answered incorrectly is subtracted from the total number of questions answered correctly. This gives the raw score. This raw score is then converted into scaled score. The scaled scores are within limits of 200 and 990. On an average, a student scores between 450 and 950 in this test. Apart form all these scores the percentiles are also reported. A percentile score indicates the percentage of students who score less than the corresponding scaled score. Say your percentile in this test is 89. It means that 89% of the total examinees scored lesser than you. The percentile scores are very important for admission authorities to determine how capable a student is in comparison with others who appear for the same test. Thus it becomes a better indicator of your performance.

The day you have to take the Physics subject test you must be well aware of the testing conditions. You should know about the duration of the test, the format, the way to fill in answers in the answer sheet and the wrong way of filling in the answers. If you are well aware about the testing conditions then you are not distracted while taking the test and can perform better.

In case your performance is not up to the mark you can retake the test. For this you will have to register again for the test and this process will consume time. To be on the safer side you must take the Physics subject test well on time, leaving enough spare time for retesting. Your test attempts will be reported along with the result and the admission authorities might not take a student who has taken more than one retest. Understandably you must endeavor to avoid such a situation. Give it your best shot in the very first go, work hard and commit your self to doing well. And remember that there are no shortcuts to success.
