It places each subject into four price bands from A to D, with A attracting the highest level of grant. Physics along with other laboratory-based subjects is in price group B. The rate of grant per full-time equivalent undergraduate in this price group was as follows:
£ 2005/06 4,959 2006/07 5,126 2007/08 5,291 2008/09 5,484 2009/10 5,425
