Physics AS/A Level at Stoke Newington School
A level physics builds on the concepts and skills developed in the physics GCSE and is particularly suitable for students who have the skills and knowledge associated with a GCSE additional science course or equivalent.
During the first year of the course you will learn about particles, quantum phenomena and electricity as well as mechanics, materials and waves. The first unit of the A level course develops further the knowledge, understanding and applications of mechanics and fields. You then cover nuclear and thermal physics and astronomy.
Two B grades in the sciences, 6 in maths.
In a world of increasing complexity, physics is proving to be a very useful qualification for a variety of careers. These range from medicine to IT and all forms of engineering. Employers regard physics at A level and beyond very highly, as it shows you have advanced numeric and problem- solving skills, that you can apply knowledge to unfamiliar situations and express ideas logically and clearly.
