I see, if the GPA thing is your overall grade then you're in trouble if it's low, higher score = more chance to get a good job.
As to whether people think your stupid because you got a 2.5 GPA, I doubt it, that would be jumping to conclusions.
Not familiar with US scoring terms etc. but if GPA is that one which determines if you get into uni or not then I don't think it matters as long as you get in. In Australia no one really cares about your ENTER (unless maybe it's 99.95) as long as you get in the course and do well in it.
In my school with did a lot of proofs of the equations given axioms like "s = d/t" etc. I don't know if those simple proofs suffice or not but it was good to learn where the equations came from anyway (at least in some respect).
Yes, the science degrees I've looked at are 80+, but specifically physics one (so not the science degrees where you have a range of stuff to choose from) are around the 50s. My guess was just noone does it at all.
I'm really having to think about what I should do in the long run. I'm in year 12, I finnish physics last year and I really loved it. I'm doing chemistry and bio this year along with Specialist (calculus) and Methods (regular math, they make you do it at the same time :( ).
The problem is - I...
I'm just curious about people who work in the nuclear/particle/theoretical physics area what the job is like. I'm currently finnishing year 12 and probably will go into a Physics Course (damn easy to get into since noone does physics) and then probably do my masters and a PhD.
