The Sir Isaac Newton (SIN) exam, offered by the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Waterloo, is a test of high school physics designed to encourage the teaching of physics. Although challenging, the exam is meant to be refreshing and fun. Political and other topical humour have marked SIN exams for years. 

This is an international exam with participants from across Canada, the United States and around the world.

Registration for the SIN exam should be completed only once per high school so please be sure to select the appropriate number of exams being ordered (one exam per student).  Exam login credentials will be provided for the online platform in late March.  For more information please visit our website.

Please be sure to set your shipping address to that of your High School or Teaching Institution.
