The aims of the A Level Physics course is for students to successfully study the physical world and gain a unique insight into how our universe functions.
In order to be able to cope with the academic rigours of study at this advanced level, students should have Grade 7 or higher in GCSE Physics or Additional Science and Grade 7 in Mathematics. If you are not a native English speaker, an IELTS score of 6.5 will enable you to access the course.
You will have covered many of the A Level Physics topics at GCSE, including forces, waves, radioactivity, electricity and magnetism.
At A Level, you will look at these areas in more detail and find out how they are interconnected. You will also learn how to apply maths to real-world problems and explore new areas such as particle physics, quantum mechanics, cosmology and medical physics.
