GACE Physics Practice Test (030, 031, & 530)

Physics is most commonly known as a core subject within the average high school curriculum. Millions of high school students across the country will have to take a physics class at some point during their academic careers. In fact, you more than likely took a physics class back during your high school years. As such, you know part of what a student needs to thrive in this class is an engaging, knowledgeable instructor—what you’re training to become.

In Georgia, every incoming teacher is required to earn a passing score on the GACE (Georgia Assessments for the Certification of Educators) exam for their subject prior to starting their career. In your case, this will be the GACE Physics exam.

Like its sibling subject tests, the GACE Physics test sections off into two subtests. They are officially referred to as Tests I and II.

Each of these subtests contains 60 selected-response (multiple choice) questions, as well as a two hour time limit.

Each subtest also features its own unique subjects for its questions to focus on.

Test I’s subjects include:
  • Thermodynamics, Atomic and Modern Physics (40 percent)
  • Mechanics (60 percent)
Test II deals with:
  • Scientific Inquiry, Processes, Technology, and Society (28 percent)
  • Optics and Waves (32 percent)
  • Electricity and Magnetism (40 percent)

In order to score well on this exam, you’ll need a thorough study plan and comprehensive study material.
