NCEA Level 3 Physics

This page contains topic outlines and revision pages for a number of topics in the NCEA Level 3 Physics Course.

Please Note: We would encourage you to visit the NCEA Website and visit the relevant NCEA page to get the previous examinations and answers. However, we have collated the questions and answers into topics if you find this more useful. We have retained the questions numbers and parts e.g. (2010;2) (a) to enable correlation.

PHY3 Topic Outlines and Revision

Externally Assessed & Internally Assessed Achievement Standards

WAVES - External

This material largely relates to the new standard - AS91523. There were only minor changes to this standard when it changed from AS90520 in 2013. The collated questions are from the both the old and new standard.

MODERN PHYSICS - Internal

Prior to 2013, this was an external standard - AS90522 Atoms, Photons and Nuclei. It is likely to be assessed using an internal test from 2013 onwards (although teachers can select from a range of assessment techniques - see the BIG notes). There were only minor changes to this existing material in the standard when it became AS91525 but also a number of additions including Relativity and material on fundamental particles. The old external examinations may be useful revision for an internal test.
