WJEC AS/A2 Physics Level 3

WJEC AS/A2 Physics Level 3


What you'll study

The course is divided into 5 units. The first 2 units will be studied in year 1 and will lead to the AS qualification.

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 will be revised thoroughly before being extended to full A Level standard. The physics specification now includes particle physics, lasers and astrophysics.

What's expected of you

Full commitment to attendance is required. Respect for others, enthusiasm for the subject and self motivation are the essential qualities we expect to see in all our learners. You will be continually assessed and there is an expectation that you will continue your studies and coursework during your own time.

What qualifications you'll achieve

What you can do 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.

Entry requirements

Minimum of 5 GCSEs at grade C or above to include English/Welsh 1st Language, a grade B or above in Maths, a grade B or above in Physics or BB or above in Additional science

Additional information

You will need to make financial contributions to the travel cost of educational visits.
