Short Description
About the Course

A levels are subject-based qualifications that can lead to university, further study, training, or work. You can choose to study three A levels over two years or a combination of A Levels and vocational A Level equivalent qualifications such as BTEC Certificates (equivalent to an AS)/ Extended Certificates (equivalent to a whole A Level). You may also wish to complete an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) during your second year. When choosing A levels subjects it is important to consider what you are likely to enjoy and be good at. If you enjoy a subject or have an ability in it already, you are more likely to do well. Also if you have a particular career, job, or further study in mind, you may need to choose specific subjects in order to meet entry requirements.

What you will study

Modern physicists have been responsible for some of the greatest achievements of our era. Just think – without our understanding of atomic theory there would be no computers, no internet, no smartphones. The digital age as we know it would not exist. Without quantum mechanics there would be no lasers or satellite navigation. Who knows where future scientific discoveries and inventions will take us? If you’re up for shaping tomorrow’s world, an A Level in Physics could take you to the frontline of the latest emerging technology. Whether you are working in a field directly related to physics like nuclear physics or astronomy, or one that simply uses the skills you’ve gained, your Physics A Level can really help you to make a difference. Topics you will study include: Mechanics; Electric Circuits; Materials; Waves and Particle Nature of Light; Further Mechanics; Electric and Magnetic Fields; Nuclear and Particle Physics; Thermodynamics; Space; Nuclear Radiation; Gravitational Fields; Oscillations; Experimental Methods.

Access Method

During the 1st year there will be 5 formal internal assessments which you will need to pass in order to progress into the 2nd year. At the end of the 2nd year there are three public examinations.

Progression

Progress to a wide range of degree and other higher education courses, apprenticeships or employment.
