There are six key categories:

  1.   Mechanics
    1. Kinematics
    2. Statics
    3. Dynamics
    4. Momentum
  1.   Energy
    1. Work
    2. Power
    3. Energy
  1.   Electricity and Magnetism
    1. Static Electricity
    2. Electric Current
    3. Magnetism
    4. Electromagnetic Induction

    3. Light
  1.   Modern Physics
    1. Dual Nature of Light
    2. Quantum Theory
    3. Models of the Atom
    4. Standard Model of Particle Physics

  1.   Math Skills needed for Physics


The format consists of several components.

  • Part A --Multiple-Choice
    A multiple-choice question offers several answers from which you choose the one that best answers the question or completes the statement. This part of the exam has content-based questions assessing your knowledge and understanding of core material and represents 30-40 percent of the examination.
  • Part B1 --Multiple-Choice
    This section of Part B consists of multiple-choice questions as described in Part A. These questions are content-and-skills-based and designed to assess your ability to apply, analyze, and evaluate material. The combined sections of Part B (multiple-choice plus constructed-response) represent 25-35 percent of the examination.
  • Part B2 --Constructed-Response
    In a constructed-response question there is no list of choices from which to choose an answer; rather you are required to provide the answer. Constructed-response questions test skills that include performing numerical calculations, drawing and interpreting graphs, and analyzing material. The combined sections of Part B represent 25-35 percent of the examination.
  • Part C --Extended Constructed-Response
    These are constructed-response questions that require more time and effort on your part to answer. Part C consists of content-based and application questions assessing your ability to apply knowledge of scientific concepts and skills. Be sure to write complete, clear sentences while using correct physics in your explanations. This part represents 23-30 percent of the examination.
