Entry Recommendations:

Students are expected to have taken at least two Year 11 Science courses, with one of those being 11PHY. Alternatively students can discuss their suitability with the HOLA.

Course Outline:

By the end of the Level 2 course, students will be able to:

  • Demonstrate understanding of atoms and radioactivity. 
  • Demonstrate understanding of mechanics.
  • Demonstrate understanding of electricity and electromagnetism.

There are two internal Achievement Standards during the year, with two external assessments at the end of the year.

Where Does It Lead:

Year 13/Scholarship Physics and university study. The content is a valuable "lead in" to many tertiary courses e.g, engineering, physiotherapy, radiography.  It can reduce apprenticeship periods significantly and provides exemptions for many polytechnic trade and New Zealand certificate courses.
