Year 1 – AS Level

  • Unit 1: Motion, energy and matter
  • Unit 2: Electricity and light

Year 2 – A Level

  • Unit 3: Oscillations and nuclei
  • Unit 4: Fields and options
  • Unit 5: Practical examination

Although many of the topics within each module will have been introduced at GCSE level, they’ll be revised thoroughly before being extended to full A Level standard. The physics specification now includes particle physics, lasers and astrophysics.

Full commitment to attendance is required, as is respect for others, enthusiasm for the subject and self-motivation. You’ll be continually assessed and there’s an expectation that you’ll continue your studies and coursework during your own time.

What comes next?

A Level Physics is accepted as an entry qualification to a surprisingly wide range of university degree courses, from accountancy to veterinary science as well as to the more obviously physics-based courses, such as acoustics, astronomy, engineering (civil, electrical, electronic, mechanical, production etc.) and ophthalmic optics.

It also prepares you for employment in a wide variety of fields.
