A-level Physics is designed to broaden and deepen the student’s knowledge and skills developed to better prepare them for university. It may be studied alongside or after taking A‑level Mathematics and provides a stimulating experience for those who enjoy the subject.
The course is made up of six units, and each are compulsory for the successful completion of the course. The four central units build upon the techniques learned previously in school and are tested though end of unit exams. The final two units are used to apply this knowledge through practical skills.
The units are as follows:
- Physics on the Go
- Physics at work
- Exploring Physics
- Physics on the move
- Physics from creation to collapse
- Experimental Physics
