The teachers were great role models and gave me a lot of encouragement as I went through my school life.

Advanced Higher Physics

The Advanced Higher Grade Physics course is composed of four Units on Mechanics, Electrical Phenomena, Wave Phenomena and Physics Investigation.  The first two listed Units are 40 hour Units whilst the last two are 20 hour Units.  The first three Units listed above are assessed by an End of Unit Test. The candidate must also complete a practical test for the course. If a candidate passes the Test for a given Unit he/she will be awarded a pass in that Unit.  The Physics Investigation Unit will be assessed via a project report.  The candidate will complete a terminal examination for the whole Advanced Higher Grade Physics course and this, in conjunction with an external assessment of the project, will determine whether or not he/she passes the overall course.  Pass grades for the course as a whole are differentiated into A, B and C grades.
