Date: 11th April, 2020 (Saturday), 14:00-17:00pm (3 hours)
The CAP Prize exam is hosted by Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP) and the University of British Columbia. It stresses logical and creative thinking, by asking questions that go beyond the expectation of the classroom. Past statistics indicate that of the approximately 2,000 students writing the exam each year, the top mark is usually above 80% and 50-100 students nationally score above 50%. The CAP High School Prize Exam is a contest, not a judgement of a students' classroom performance. Top performers of this exam will be invited to enter Canada Physics Olympiad, which is to select Canadian national team for IPO.
The Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP) is the voice of Canadian physics. The CAP represents more than 1,700 physicists working in academia, government and industry. ASDAN China (ASDAN Academy)and CAP have cooperated to bring the CAP High School Exam to China from 2018, in order to bring more opportunities for Chinese students.
