Cannot find Theoretical Physics course in my country

  • This has become our largest and most active forum because the physics GRE is just one aspect of getting accepted into a graduate physics program.
  • There are applications, personal statements, letters of recommendation, visiting schools, anxiety of waiting for acceptances, deciding between schools, finding out where others are going, etc.

On the bachelor level, I don't believe it is much different to study theoretical physics rather than physics. Almost all physicists and astronomers only specialise after a BSc.

You should look more into what the physics course actually offers rather than just the "theoretical" label.
