Level 3 Physics - Semester A
Teacher in Charge: Mr P. Bache
This is an ideal course for students who want to further extend their scientific knowledge and skills in Physics. Physics is an essential prerequisite for entry into most University level engineering courses as well as for all types of Physics degrees.
Physics at this level demands very good skills in mathematics.
Semester A offers the study of Waves through an External Standard followed by one or two internal standards to develop higher level research skills.
