Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi, I was wondering how hard grade 12 physics might be for someone who took grade 11 physics in summer school. I'm afraid that I won't do well in grade 12(the class starts in a few days) because I did grade 11 physics in the summer and we rushed through a lot of units like energy and electricity and magnetism. My teacher also made the waves unit much easier than it would have been in regular school. Grade 12 physics is not required for the program I want to do in university, but it's reccomended and some classes may require it. Should I take it?

I wouldn't worry too much about having come through a course that may have been "easier" from some points of view. At worst, that's going to mean that you'll have to catch up on some topics, but that's part of the learning process. It just might mean that you have to spend a little more time reviewing. I don't think that's a good reason not to take a course - particularly if you're interested in it.

I would say go for it.
