What is the Physics Regents?
The Physics - Physical Setting Regents Examination is a standardized assessment given to students enrolled in New York State schools. The examination is based on the physical setting Core Curriculum which is based on Standard 4 of the New York State Learning Standards for Mathematics, Science, and Technology. These content-based questions test your ability to apply, analyze, synthesize, and evaluate information from the physical setting core curriculum.

When is the Physics Regents offered?
The Physics Regents is offered in January, June and August of each year. The next Regents week will be Jan 27 - 30, 2003.

How is the Physics Regents Test structured?
The Physics Regents consists of three parts that have to be completed in three hours.

  • Part I - Core Units 65 points 55 multiple choice questions on the 5 core subject areas: Mechanics, Energy, Electricity and Magnetism, Wave Phenomena, Modern Physics.
  • Part II - Extended Units 20 points Multiple choice and Open ended question from any of these: Motion In A Plane (projectile and circular), Internal Energy, Electromagnetic Applications, Geometric Optics, Solid State, Nuclear Energy.
  • Part III - Core Units 15 points This is known as the free response section of the exam. These are similar to the complete calculation problems. There are typically three questions with several parts to them.
