A-Level Physics

To study A-Level Physics, you must have a real interest in the subject combined with an enjoyment of solving problems. There are some familiar topics such as electricity, waves and motion and forces, combined with new topics including electromagnetism, medical physics, nuclear physics, particle physics and cosmology.

This is a practical based course and you will have the chance to develop your practical skills way beyond anything studied at GCSE. You will also be able to use your developing knowledge of maths in useful, real-life contexts.

This is one of the most respected A-Level subjects for any degree, including engineering, law, economics and medicine. It can open doors as an engineer, in research (such as into energy and sound), in medical applications (as a doctor or radiologist, for example), in sports science, forensics, as a reporter – the list is endless.

Assessment in this course: 100% external examination with practical endorsement reported separately.

Entry Requirements:

Students need to have achieved a minimum of 6 grades 5-9 incl. English and Maths and should be aiming to achieve a minimum grade 6 in GCSE Sciences.
