SS1 First Term Physics Scheme Of Work

The SS1 Physics First Term Scheme Of Work for (Senior Secondary schools one) in Nigeria has been made unified as approved by the ministry of education.

Being unified means all schools be it private or government-owned are to adopt the same scheme as it is approved for preparing students for Physics exams in the West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination.

The government-approved scheme of work for SS1 Physics First Term Scheme Of Work for all topics is now available on our platform.

This unified (used in all states) scheme of work covers all topics ranging from first term to third term which starts with introduction and revision of the previous term, midterm breaks, revision, examination, and vacation.

The SS1 Physics First Term scheme of work government-approved subjects for all primary schools in Nigeria makes this scheme of work very important.


It is the government revised scheme for all topics for SS1 Physics and it is applicable to all states. That is, schools (Private and government-owned) operating in all states in Nigeria are advised to make use of this scheme of work as it contains the approved curriculum.
