Course Description

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 Mechanical Systems through an External Standard followed by a course to develop higher level Investigation skills through an Internal Standard.
If you are intending for this to be a University approved subject, you must take both Semester A and B of this course.
