Physics MS in Physics after Mechanical

  1. Sep 20, 2011 #1
    I am currently in my final year doing Mechanical Engg from a Govt college.
    I have written GRE and will start applying for universities in 3 week's time.
    But, my interest in Mechanical engg is going down day by day. Since my 9th grade, I've always wanted to study Physics.

    My question is: Is it possible for me to jump to pure Physics with an Engg background?
    If I have to apply to foreign universities, what are the requirements I will need, to compensate for my lack of a basic degree in Physics?
    Will writing PHYSICS GRE help me?
    Or should I try for an internship in a Physics related field?

    I am desperately looking forward to your replies.
    Thank you.
