The Physics Placement Test is a one-hour multiple choice exam that covers topics in high school level physics, algebra and first semester calculus.
Basic physics formulae will be provided.
Please bring a calculator.
All students who plan to take Phys 70 must fulfill the following requirements:
- Pass the Physics Placement Test
- Show proof of passing high school level physics with a grade of "B" or better
- Pass Math 30 or 30P with a grade of C- or better.
Students who register for Phys 70 without meeting all of these requirements will be dropped from the course.
Students who wish to register for Phys 50 do not need to take the Physics Placement Test. Physics 61 is no longer offered. See your major advisor or visit the Physics department office, Sci 148, for details.
