    1. Science student here who isn't great at physics and I found that course straightforward. It's not as hard as people make it out to be, especially because they curve the grades like crazy. 111L sucks though.

    2. Not all of us "snotty engineering/math/physics students" are sniggey.

      Please stop the generalizations, some of us just won't to study and have some fun and not faculty bash. As a 4A student, it was bad during 1st year because of O-week and is significantly drops off. This realization comes when one realizes that not too many people care what faculty you are in.

  3. Took 121 over 3 years after taking grade 12 physics. Didn't do an ounce of studying, came out with 75. You should be able to do very well if you're not stupid.

    Will the answers on OMGUW make you add/drop the course or change your studying habits? It's easy enough that you should take it, and hard enough that you should work for it. You will likely find it difficult, and your midterm mark will be the worst mark you've ever received in your life. But you'll get over it.

  5. I took physics 111 without taking a single physics course in highschool. I kept up with the weekly quizzes and went to lectures. Just clarify points that you don't understand and it honestly is not hard at all. I finished the course with an 86% which was good in my books. Your midterm may discourage you but your final is worth way more if you do better at it. Goodluck!

  6. Physics is easy in uni, just do a few practice questions every day. I got 95 this term.
