To access this course you will need to have studied Additional Science GCSE or Physics/ Biology/ Chemistry GCSE and will need a total of two grade 6 in Science GCSEs. Good literacy and mathematical skills are also essential, so we ask for at least a 4 grade in English Language and a 6 grade or above in Mathematics.
The A-level course involves the following topics:
Assessment is by 3 exam papers, each of 2 hours duration. Paper 1 covers 1-5 plus half of 6, paper 2 covers the other half of 6 and 7, 8 and Paper 3 covers 9 and practical skills and data analysis. Many of the topics build on prior learning at GCSE, but there are also many areas which introduce new material, in some cases from the cutting edge of modern science- though thankfully not in full mathematical detail!
The course is suitable for anyone with an interest in Physics. Previous students have studied this course to help them access Physics related university courses, mathematics and engineering, and electrical engineering. Physics is a valued A-level for many University courses and also in a wide range of careers.
