The first year modules in Physics are offered in two streams, viz. Physics Major and Physics Ancillary.
The latter is offered over two semesters at the 100 level and is intended for learners who would like a background in Physics without calculus (i.e. an average background in Mathematics), and who would major in Biochemistry, Botany, Chemistry, Entomology, Microbiology and/or Zoology. Candidates who have successfully completed these ancillary modules would not automatically qualify to do a second year in Physics, but may apply to the Head of Department for admission, who will make a recommendation to the Faculty.
The Physics Major programme is intended for learners who would like to continue their studies in Physics to the 200 and 300 level and who have a good background in Mathematics.
