Physics Stage 6

Physics can be studied in Year 11 and 12 for the HSC (Stage 6). Satisfactorily completing the outcomes of the Year 11 course (preliminary) is a prerequisite for the Year 12 course (HSC). The NSW Board of Studies provides the syllabus and related information in their website.

The study of physics relies on the understanding and application of a small number of basic laws and principles that govern the microscopic and macroscopic worlds. It provides students with an understanding of systems that is the basis of the development of technological applications.

The study of physics Stage 6 course is designed for those students who have a substantial achievement level based on the science Stages 4-5 course performance descriptors. It is a popular choice for students at Blakehurst High School where usually three classes are offered.
