Hi j S. I see that you posted this question a little while ago so I hope my answer to you (or others who may read this response) is still helpful.

Sharing with you that I had a very similar goal/challenge in the early years of my college journey. I think the most important thing to call out here is the stated goal..."want higher marks in Physics...". To be clear, you could have replaced the word physics with any other subject...but sticking with Physics for now sharing three things I did to get higher marks 1)paid closer attention in class. Physics was the least exciting of my first year classes so remaining focused was a bit of a challenge for me but I had to do it to get better marks. 2)identified things that I didn't understand sooner rather than later. The best time to get help and raise those marks is when there is still time in the semester to do so. 3)got myself on a "repeat cycle" with teaching assistants and study partners. Both serve a good role in terms of keeping pace with what you are learning and how you are retaining what you are learning.

Hope you find this guidance helpful. Best of luck to you!

1. Depend on the type of class you are taking; If you are going for calculus-based physics then you must make sure to know calculus well. try to explain natural events around you with physics lesson you learn in the day. Read ahead and consider doing homework before hand.

I agree that if you are enrolled in a Physics class that has a dependency on Calculus, you should have taken Calculus or be enrolled in a Calculus class. I would reach out to the Professor and/or Teaching Assistant for help. Both are always willing to listen and provide additional assistance.
