Senior Physics Challenge

Senior Physics Challenge Residential Course

  • About 30-40 prize places for Year 12 students in the SPC residential course in Cambridge.
  • Course usually in early July.
  • Advanced problem solving in Quantum Mechanics.
  • Lab classes.
  • Prize places awarded for commitment to solving problems from Isaac. Problems considered for SPC qualification will come from the main selector/filter of the Isaac Physics site, or from boards of questions set for competitions. Problems from the Mastering Physics book that are answered on the site will not count."
  • Interested students should register with Isaac and just get started with solving problems. All problem solving is then recorded in your personal profile.
  • Students can join the Isaac "group" for SPC prize awards. Only then can your stored problem-solving record be monitored (and only in generality, not as with set homework) to be considered for the SPC residential.
