Physics Unlimited Premier Competition (PUPC) is an individual exam containing several advanced mechanics problems. The exam challenges students to think out of the box and to apply their knowledge at a deeper level than in conventional high school physics problems. Physics Unlimited provides opportunities for students to learn physics and math while exhibiting their problem solving skills. The primary mission of this non-profit organization is to make physics education and enrichment more accessible for students across the world, and it is dedicated to overseeing both onsite and online events. The Physics Unlimited Premier Competition is an international version of the Princeton University Physics Competition, run by its organizing team independently from Physics Unlimited. Students at all global sites compete on the same papers, resulting in both combined and site-specific sets of rankings.
