Physics at ARK Putney

Course description

A-level Physics allows students to appreciate how fundamental Science works and to study optional topics that particularly interest them – including Astrophysics, Medical Physics and Applied Physics.

There are six units in the specification – three at AS and three at A2. Four of the units are assessed by exam. There are two units assessing investigative and practical skills. These can be completed via a teacher-assessed or examiner-assessed route.

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.

Entry requirements

For A level and level 3 courses students require 5 A*–C passes at GCSE, preferably including English and Maths, and including at least a B grade or merit in the subject they wish to study.

Where the subject chosen has not been previously studied, English and Maths grades will be considered.
