Physics A Level at Bury St Edmunds County Upper School
The second year of the course develops the fundamental concepts further, such as explaining circular motion and collisions in two dimensions. However, it also enables students to access the cutting edge of modern physics such as cosmology, nuclear, medical and particle physics. As students progress through the course they will build on their knowledge of the laws of physics, applying their understanding to solve problems on topics ranging from sub-atomic particles to the entire universe.
Students who wish to study GCE Advanced level courses are required to have passed at least five GCSE or equivalent level two courses at grades 5-9 including a minimum of grade 5 in the subjects they wish to study. Most students attempting A level courses will have more than this minimum. In subjects not taught at GCSE a 5 in a related subject is required (for example, a 5/6 in English would enable a student to study Politics).
