Repeating a course

A Physics course may be taken only twice, regardless of the grade earned in the first enrolment. The Department Chair, or delegate, will decide on exceptions to this rule, usually on the basis of documented evidence of upgraded prerequisites.

Laboratory Requirements

The Physics labs are an integral part of each course. It is Physics Department policy that there are no make-up labs. Failure to satisfactorily complete the laboratory requirements may result in a failing grade for the course.

Diagnostic Tests

The Physics Diagnostic Placement Test is an assessment of the student’s knowledge of the physics principles and their applications. The test is designed to place the student into the most appropriate physics course. To enrol in any physics course with a physics prerequisite, the Diagnostic Test is required for any student who has NOT taken a physics course in BC.

Note: Not all courses are offered every semester.
