i dont like this way of "choosing" your own options =='', we have to folow the majority, and unluckily for me, i was the minority >_<

i didnt know mechanics was an option *gulp*

well anyways we already took mechanics in first year, and this year we will be taking history of physics, the teacher had us study it over the summer...its kinda fun to know how most of it started :P

Ghanem9:

There is an option called Mechanics extension, which basically extends the basic IB mechanics... So everyone does a bit of mechanics :P

What's history of physics like, I heard it's a lot to remember?

There is one Biology and one Chemistry, but how could we forget Physics?

I am wishing to choose from Astrophysics, Particle Physics and Relativity. It is hard to decide.

What options have you chosen or going to choose? and what do you think of them?

Last year we only had time to learn the options Mechanics and Optics. They were pretty easy - as in they won't kill you. They are mostly graphs and equations, so there isn't as much memorizing as the other options.

Well, I wouldn't have to worry about it coz APPARENTLY ( I heard from a Year 13) the school choose them for us.

But If i get to choose, I really really wanna do Biomedical Physics.. Coz I want to do Biomedicine/Medicine in Uni.. I reckon It sounds soo cool.

If you get to choose the options by your own, then you are very lucky. We do not have the option of choosing the options by our own.

If i had the choice then i would choose Particle Physics and Astrophysics.

soo true....we dont get to choose our own options....but my school chose Astrophysics for us.... -_-

I think we are doing particle physics. I don't know much about any of the three so I can't really complain. But apparantly astrophysics is like the topic everyone is talking about now, so I guess there'd be a lot of interesting theories and stuffs, I would imagine astrophysics being more theory based than the rest.

Its a shame though. I'm really interested in particle physics and relativity as well.. wierd how I want ALL physics options if I could.. yet NO chemistry options at all interest me..

I was wrong, we're doing Electromagnetism not Astrophysics. Although I'd like Astro more. =(

Haha Eyas same here, I swear lol. I'm good at chem, used to score always high nineties but I never really liked the subject, maybe it was because of my previous teacher.

Hehe yeah. I'm still good at chem though, very good. Just not interested in ANY option in there at all! :)
