Why study Physics?
The nature and properties of matter and energy. The subject matter of Physics includes mechanics, heat, light and other radiation, sound, electricity, magnetism, and the structure of atoms .
Module 1: Development of practical skills.
Module 2: Foundations of physics.
Module 3: Forces and motion.
Module 4: Electrons, waves, and photons.
Module 5: Newtonian world and astrophysics.
Module 6: Particles and medical physics.
At A Level:
Paper 1 assesses content from Modules 1, 2, 3 and 5
Paper 2 assesses content from Modules 1, 2, 4 and 6
Paper 3 assesses content from Modules 1 to 6.
Students also have to have an endorsement of their practical skills signed by their teacher.
Future careers linked to this subject:
An A level in Physics would be a passport into any degree. It is one of 7 top recommended subjects to take at A level. Physics is the basis of many engineering disciplines and its understanding has driven developments in power generation, telecommunication, defence, transport, space exploration, material science, construction and medical scanning.
Minimum requirements are Grade 6 /6 in Combined Science GCSE or Physics GCSE at Grade 6. Grade 6 in GCSE Mathematics. It would be strongly recommended that you take A Level maths
