The course combines learning about theories in Physics with practical laboratory work and analysing data.

You are likely to do well if you can think logically, critically and imaginatively and are willing to work hard. The course can be challenging and you will need to persevere when you cannot immediately see the solution to a problem. It includes some mathematical concepts and theories, so it will also help if you enjoy and are good at Mathematics, especially algebra.

You will be assessed through written exams and practical work.

This A Level could lead on to related degree courses and careers, such as; science, engineering or computing, and the skills you will learn, such as thinking clearly and logically, will be useful in a wide range of other fields. Physics is identified by selective universities as one of the subjects they prefer applicants to have studied at A Level.

Physics can be taken with any other subjects, but students often choose; Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology or Geography.

Entry requirements:

  • A GCSE at grade A*-B in Physics or Science and Additional Science
  • A GCSE at grade A*-B in Mathematics
  • Five GCSEs at grades A*-C including English
  • A GCSE average points score of more than 5.7 (see page 16 for details of how this is calculated).
