 For students under the 4year 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 1112 employs a calculusbased approach. Students without knowledge of calculus should take PHYS 1111 instead.
 Exclusion: PHYS 1111, PHYS 1312
 Prerequisite: (Level 3 or above in HKDSE 1/2x or in HKDSE 1x Physics) and Level 3 or above in HKDSE Mathematics Extended Module M1/M2
 Students without the physics prerequisite but have taken PHYS 1001 or equivalent, and/or without the mathematics prerequisite but have taken MATH 1012/ MATH 1013/ MATH 1020/ MATH 1023 or equivalent may seek instructor’s approval for enrolling in the course
