Chapter 51 Physics Training, the situation is tricky
“Only half a month left,” Meng Zhijian said in a heavy tone.
“This year’s schedule is too early, it’s not good for us…” Yu Wenzhou had a rare serious expression on his face.
The physics class had been in a laissez-faire state before, and both of them were prepared to go to the national league again this year to play a supporting role. Who would have thought that Jiang Fuyue would suddenly emerge as a dark horse, reigniting their fighting spirit.
For the past few days, they had been working tirelessly and were making progress. Now, they were suddenly told that time was running out?
If it weren’t for their concern about being teachers and setting an example, they would have cursed on the spot.
Yu Wenzhou asked, “Wasn’t the preliminary round usually in mid-August in previous years? What’s the situation this year?”
Meng Zhijian pondered for a moment and said, “If I’m not mistaken, it seems that they want to leave time for the national team’s training. After all, last year… the results were not very good.”
Not just “not very good”!
The IPhO China team didn’t win any gold medals last year.
Yu Wenzhou clicked his tongue and said, “It seems that they want to revive their glory.” The competition between the participants can be imagined.
“The current situation is not optimistic for us…” Meng Zhijian said. “But I think there are opportunities and challenges.”
“What opportunities?” Yu Wenzhou asked.
“Don’t you want to know Jiang Fuyue’s limits? How much talent does she have left to unleash?” Meng Zhijian’s eyes flickered.
Yu Wenzhou was taken aback.
“Every time she hands in a test paper, it’s all correct, and she’s never made a mistake in class exercises. These questions vary in difficulty, but her answers are always standard. What kind of difficult problems can make her rack her brains, or not be so confident? Aren’t you curious?”
That afternoon, Meng Zhijian and Yu Wenzhou called a meeting of the 12 members of the physics competition class.
“There are two things we need to inform everyone about. First, the preliminary round of the national physics competition is set for July 12th…”
“What? So early? I haven’t even started my experimental part yet, I’m done for!”
“We only have half a month left, and it’s not enough time to sharpen our tools at the last minute.”
“Too sudden, we were caught off guard.”
“Quiet! Let me finish,” Meng Zhijian’s majestic voice reached everyone’s ears, and soon the classroom became calm again, but the atmosphere was slightly more serious than before.
“Due to the time constraints, based on our current progress, it’s impossible to finish learning all the content before the preliminary round. Therefore, after discussing with Teacher Yu, we decided to conduct intensive training for everyone in the next half month.”
“As the name suggests, intensive training means concentration, not only in terms of personnel, but also in terms of teaching content. To put it simply, you will spend all your daytime learning for the competition! Don’t worry too much about the experiments, they won’t be tested in the preliminary round, and the focus will be on the theoretical part.”
“Because it involves class suspension, I have already reported to the school, and the grade has agreed. However, based on the principle of voluntary participation, we will not force anyone. You can choose between regular classes and training. Please discuss with your parents tonight and give me your answer no later than tomorrow.”
At this point, everything was clear.
The choice was in the hands of the students.
Jiang Fuyue was the first to stand up and say, “I have no problem.”
Then five more people agreed on the spot.
The remaining six students brought back their parents’ feedback the next day — all of them joined, and no one dropped out.
Thus, the intense physics competition training began.
In the first two classes of the morning, Meng Zhijian broke down new points, and in the last three classes, he gave on-site evaluations of tests.
At noon, there was a normal break.
In the afternoon, they tested their knowledge of the morning’s topics, usually by doing two to four sets of papers, with such intensity that it made people question their lives.
But this was just the beginning.
As they continued to learn more knowledge points, the difficulty of the problems also visibly increased. First, they were a mixture of multiple knowledge points, with strong comprehensiveness. Secondly, the training standards were getting closer and closer to the preliminaries.
In just three days, some students vomited directly in class due to the high level of mental tension.
They were sent to the school clinic, and the diagnosis was as follows —
It may be due to physiological rejection caused by high mental stress.
But in the afternoon, the student returned to the class to continue the lesson.
“Classmate Jiang, can I sit next to you?”
Jiang Fuyue and Liu Bowen were sitting together, but there was an empty seat next to her.
Liu Bowen laughed, “Hou Siyuan just vomited this morning, and he still wants to torture himself?”
It was supposed to be a joke, but Hou Siyuan nodded seriously, “The doctor said I have to adapt actively in order to overcome the psychological barriers, otherwise it will continue like this.”
So he came to find the great devil Jiang Fuyue, wanting to experience the feeling of being crushed and abused up close.
“Young man, you really have ideas,” Liu Bowen gave him a thumbs up.
Hou Siyuan’s gaze fell on Jiang Fuyue, and he nervously swallowed his saliva, “Is it okay?”
“It’s okay.” The seat wasn’t hers, so it was fine.
While the three were talking, Jiang Fuyue’s pen didn’t stop. By the time the bell rang for class, she had already finished the entire test paper and casually threw it aside.
Needless to say, she must have gotten full marks again.
Liu Bowen was used to it, but Hou Siyuan didn’t know. He looked at her blankly, completely stunned.
After class, Jiang Fuyue went to the bathroom.
Liu Bowen took the opportunity to lean over and snapped his fingers in front of the little junior, “Hey, come back to reality!”
Hou Siyuan struggled to move his eyeballs and focused after a while: “Sh-she, she, she…”
“Doesn’t she look like an emotionless problem-solving machine?”
Hou Siyuan nodded fiercely, “It’s too scary. Does she not need scratch paper?”
“I even suspect that she doesn’t need to read the questions.” She can just write the answers directly.
Hou Siyuan’s three views were hit and devastated by a storm. “How does she do it?”
Liu Bowen shrugged, “Maybe only God knows.”
“Know what?” Jiang Fuyue came back.
Liu Bowen immediately shrank back.
Hou Siyuan also subconsciously sat up straight with his back straight.
Meng Zhijian’s so-called “intensive training” was nothing more than a high-intensity “tactic of drilling problems”.
Don’t care about anything else, solving problems is the only way.
Jiang Fuyue had no objections to this. She was already a decent player and liked to directly tackle problems.
Listening and learning can only get you so far, but eventually, you have to apply it by doing.
There are many people who can understand but cannot solve problems. Since that’s the case, why not enjoy the thrill of “real combat”?
She was quite at home, but others seemed to have lost half their lives.
Even Liu Bowen, with a solid foundation and a sharp mind, almost couldn’t hold on, let alone Hou Siyuan, who was inexperienced.
That’s right, he vomited again.
Fortunately, he had prepared a disposable plastic bag in advance, which avoided the occurrence of an indescribable scene.
“I’m sorry… I did my best… but I couldn’t control it…”
He had no doubt that if he hadn’t vomited into the plastic bag this time… Jiang Fuyue would definitely not want to continue being his desk mate.
“Old Meng, this can’t go on like this.” Yu Wenzhou withdrew his gaze and turned to Meng Zhijian. “The intensity is too high, and the students in the class have uneven levels. We’re running too fast in front, and those who can’t keep up will be left behind.”
Obviously, Meng Zhijian also saw the training situation during this period of time. “I know…” But what can be done about it?
