About the Exam
The GACE Physics Test II exam is the second of two tests that make up the GACE Physics exam, which is used in the state of Georgia to determine the knowledge level of aspiring physics educators. Test II is a computer-administered exam containing 60 selected-response questions broken down into three subareas: Electricity and Magnetism (accounting for 40% of the exam); Optics and Waves (32%); and Scientific Inquiry, Processes, Technology and Society (28%). Candidates are allotted two hours to complete Test II and must attain a passing score of 220.
