The Sims 4 Discover University: Physics

Standard and Distinguished Physics Degree Applications and Career Benefits

The Sims 4 Physics Degree


Physics Degree in The Sims 4 Discover UniversityPhysics Description: Whether you like to think big or think small, the Physics degree has got you covered. From subatomic particles to the edges of our universe, this degree will help build the handiness, robotics, and rocket science skills along with a fascination for the way things truly work.

Distinguished Application

Available at School: Foxbury

Requirements: Being accepted into one of the two schools for a distinguished degree in physics is not guaranteed, but having the following skills and factors in your favor will make it more likely. You begin with a 5/20 chance. This is multiplied by:

FactorSkill Level?Multiplier
High School"A" Student2x
High School"B" StudentFlat, no gain or loss
High School"C" to "F" StudentFrom 0.5 (C) to 0.25 multiplier to score with D-F.
Logic3+x2
Handiness2-3x2
Robotics2-3x2
Rocket Science2-3x2
Handiness4-6x4
Robotics4-6x4
Rocket Science4-6x4
Handiness7-10x8
Robotics7-10x8
Rocket Science7-10x8

Additionally, Sims can flaunt fame for a x2 multiplier (but will have it dropped to 0.25 on failure). Sims who donate can also see a big multiplier of x16, but a failure there is the worst of the bunch (0.125). Having a multiplier less than 1 is dropping the score a lot.

Ultimately, your final score will determine if you are accepted in to a distinguised program. There is a non-distinguished version of every degree in Discover University. If you fail to get into a distinguished program, you can take the regular version at the other school. There are caveats, so see the degrees guide for more detailed information. It also explains the difference between with and without honors.

My sim graduated from Foxbury with a 4.0 with a degree in Physics. But the only signing bonuses offered were for Space Ranger and Scientist. Nothing for Engineering. I thought I did something wrong. I guess it’s a glitch.
