The CAP Prize Exam is hosted by Canadian Association of Physicist. The level of the CAP exam is intentionally high. Only the top students from each school are expected to take part in the exam and only a handful of students in Canada are expected to completely finish the CAP Exam in the time allotted. 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 student’s classroom performance. It’s looking for the most skilled, best educated physics students. Programmable calculators are not allowed. A number of Universities in Canada recognized top CAP Exam students.
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.
