B.Sc. Physics and B.Sc. (Hons.) in Physics (Bachelor of Science in Physics)

B.Sc. physics

In this article learn about B.Sc. Physics course. Giving information about this course seems natural as this website is all about providing notes and study material for B.Sc first, second and third year. So here in this article learn about this course and know what you are going to study in this course.
Duration of this course : 3 Years
Level of this course: Graduation
Type (what you get after completing  the course): Degree
Eligibility criteria: 10+2

B.Sc. Physics is an undergraduate Physics course offered by most of the Indian universities. So either you can apply for the course in your local college or go out looking for a better college. Most of the colleges take admissions from class 12 marks basis so you need to get good marks in your board exams for getting the college you desired. Physics as you might know is the most basic of all sciences. In general as stated earlier duration of this course is three years. Some universities offer this course where exams are conducted annually. Some universities follow semester system where you have to appear in exams twice a year  and you even have to submit assignments and hourly tests all across the semester.

For more information you must contact the administrative office of concerned college or university.

B.Sc. Physics Eligibility criteria:

  • For getting admission to the Bachelor of Science course in Physics, candidates must have completed their higher secondary examination in science stream and they must have secured good percentage of marks in the physics examination at their 10+2 level if they want to get admissions into desired colleges and universities.

B.Sc. Physics Syllabus

Syllabus of Physics as prescribed by various Universities and Colleges are different and I am providing links of some of the universities. If you want to add links of more universities please leave me a comment in the comment section below.

  • Banaras Hindu University : Follow this link to find the syllabus prescribed by the university.

Different universities prescribe different syllabus some have higher course and content coverage then the other but overall most of them follow pattern as suggested by UGC.
B.Sc. Physics Course Suitability and benefits

  • It is absolutely essential that a physicist be proficient with mathematics. You don’t have to know everything-that’s impossible-but you do have to be comfortable with mathematical concepts and how to apply them.
  • Second, you should take as much high school and college mathematics as you can reasonably fit into your schedule. Especially, take the entire run of algebra, geometry/trigonometry, and calculus courses available, including .
  • They should have problem solving skills such as analytical approach to problem-solving, use imagination and creativity to try new approaches to solve challenging problems.
  • This course enables the students to integrate their knowledge with computer science, electronics, chemistry and mathematics. On completion of this course, students will be able to get enough knowledge to excel in educational and in industrial areas.
  • Candidates have teaching options both at high school and elementary level. The current shortage of teachers trained in the physical sciences is likely to continue for several years. So this is a bright area for them.
  • They can become meteorologist who has to study of the causes of particular weather conditions; uses computerized and mathematical models designed to make short and long-range forecasts concerning weather and climate patterns.
  • They can also find employment in academic institutions and government research organizations along with in industries such as aerospace, engineering, manufacturing, oil and gas, space exploration and telecommunications.
