|Supervised Exam||There is a supervised exam at the end of the teaching period in which you are enrolled. The paper-based exam will be held at an established exam venue, and coordinated by UNE Exams Unit.|
|Restrictions||PHYS123 or PHYS131 or PHYS132|
Completion of science and mathematics at Year-10 is advised and certainly Year-11 will be an advantage. Students should be confident with addition, subtraction, division and multiplication and have had an introduction to algebra. If you are doing both MTHS100 and PHYS100, consider completing MTHS100 Introduction to Quantitative Skills, prior to, or concurrently with, PHYS100 Introductory Physics. Students required to complete PHYS100 before enrolling for further PHYS units may apply to the head of school for a waiver of the prerequisite requirements.
