Hello guys! I have recently graduated from my bachelor degree in engineering physics and I wish to apply for a master degree in pure physics next year. I have read ZapperZ's post on how to check my own understanding in physics. However, is there any examinations (or anything else) I can take so that I can persuade others about my concrete understanding of any necessary background knowledge in physics and mathematics? Also, what are my chances for being accepted to germany master schools which has a ranking within 200? I am graduated with a second upper class honor from a not very well known university in Hong Kong. I have only a few months of research experiences in thin film surface modification, plus a year of research experience in theoretical simulation as a research assistant. Thanks! and please let me know if you need more information.
