Remarks
  • For students under the 4-year degree
  • PHYS 1111 and PHYS 1112 target students who have learned the most basic knowledge in physics in high school. Students with more advanced physics background should consider taking PHYS 1312. PHYS 1111 employs an algebra-based approach. Students with knowledge of calculus should take PHYS 1112 instead.
  • Exclusion: Level 3 or above in HKDSE Mathematics Extended Module M1/M2, PHYS 1112, PHYS 1312
  • Prerequisite: Level 3 or above in HKDSE 1/2x or HKDSE 1x Physics
  • Students with a passing grade in any MATH courses coded between 1000 and 1600 need to seek instructor’s approval for enrolling in this course
