Hy everyone,

i will be enrolling in university for a course in physics and applied physics in abut 3/4 of a year.

Is this course a mix between the 2? or must one choose between them.

I actually plan on doing applied physics and i aim for a masters. I hope to be working in an industry. Any advice for me? ;p

Also i will be doing an exemption test before U to see if the freshmen are eligibl for an exemption from Uiniversity first year. Mine was originally a 4 year course. But its a direct honours course. What do i need to rpepare for the exemption test??

If the title is "physics and applied physics," I would expect it includes emphasis on both due to the use of the word "and" - but you really need to contact your university to find curriculum information, since we have absolutely no way of knowing details like that.

Nope, the core topics covered for a degree tend to be similar because of accreditation, but that only holds up to a certain point. Things like test credit are *very* dependent on the university.
