I have just graduated as an Electrical Engineer in one of the universities in middle east.
Now Iam working in a local company.

my GPA is 3.44 and I have the following Background :

Physics : Physics A & B , Analog & Digital electronics , EM I & II
Math : Calculus A,B & C , ODE , Probabilities

I haven't taken the Physics GRE (PGRE) yet . But I Plan to first self-study some physics topics like mechanics , optics , quantum mechanics , relativity , statistical physics , solid-state , waves and vibration and atomic physics.

I will self-study these topics in a period of 1.5 years , not just to pass the PGRE , but for myself to really understand..So the study will bee serious although not a type of formal education.

The question
Suppose I got a good PGRE score - say 900 - then will any American or UK university admit me despite not being a physics major ??
