Once you earn you BS in physics at the undergraduate level and you decide that you want to become a physicist, do most physics majors apply to grad school first and then attempt to pursue in earn a pHd in their field of interests or do most physics bachelors directly apply for a pHd and therefore bypass their graduate studies?

It's pretty hard to pursue a PhD *before* applying for grad schools.... :-)

The nomenclature for "doing a PhD" varies from country to country. "Graduate studies" (ie, any coursework or research project which leads to one or both of an M.Sc or a PhD) in Canada and the US is the same as "postgraduate studies" in the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
