Physics Olympiad

  1. Nov 10, 2005 #1
    Hi,
    I did the Olympiad this week and I found it very hard. Does anyone know what the percentages needed for the awards are.
    Also can anyone remember any of the parts of Question 1 as I found it very hard and i wanted to ask my neighbour who is a physics lecturer about it

    Well it's hard to tell what the grade boundaries will be because they move depending on how difficult candidates found the exam. I didn't do the physics one last year only maths but i think a good guess would be, bronze about >40%, silver >55%, gold>70%, considering how hard these things are supposed to be.

    Out of curiosity, is the BPhO OVER for 2005-06? My teacher claims I'm going to sit it this week and I thought it had finished ages ago. :S

    Props to you for competing! Do you have a web pointer to the questions?
