Physics is an interesting and rewarding subject, but one that requires commitment. This is a challenging course and should not be undertaken half-heartedly. High grades can be obtained if you are diligent and have the ability to use reasoning rather than rote learning. It is highly recommended that you study A Level Maths alongside Physics.


The first year covers Particles, Radiation and Quantum Phenomena Particles, Mechanics, Current Electricity, Elastic Properties of Solids and Waves.

The second year covers a wide range of topics including: Gravitational, Electric and Magnetic Fields, Nuclear Energy and Nuclear Instability as well as an option, presently Astrophysics.

Practical skills are developed within the content covered through key experimental investigations and are assessed in the end of the course exam papers.

How will it be delivered?

A Level Physics is assessed through written exams at the end of the second year.

Entry requirements

At least 5 GCSEs graded 9-5. A grade 6/6 or above in Double Science is essential and a grade 6 in Maths. If taking separate sciences, one of the 6s must be Physics. You should take Maths A Level alongside this subject.
