Physics at Uplands Community College School Sixth Form

Course description

Physics is about understanding the world in which we live, from the incredibly large [Cosmology] to the study of the incredibly small [Quantum Mechanics], and in so doing overlaps with the other Sciences in many places.


Physics goes well with any Science subjects, but A Level Mathematics would be particularly beneficial, since how the world works can often best be described mathematically.

Course content

In this course students build on previous GCSE Science work to look at such topics as Electromagnetism, Wave-Particle Duality, and Nuclear Physics through a mixture of theory and practical work.

Entry requirements

5 A* - C grades at GCSE, including BB in Science, as well as B in Mathematics and C in English.
