Criterion for skills

Student should have aquired skills in: 

  • applying various concepts of physics to numerical calculations
  • conducting simple experiments and presenting the findings in a report form
  • applying the basic laws of physics to analyse and categorise physical phenonema
  • making use of concepts in physics to explain what occurs in nature in accorance to study elements
