Physics - A Level (AQA) at HARTPURY COLLEGE

Course description

Physicists explore the answers to complex questions such as: How did the Universe begin? How does the sun keep shining? What are the basic building blocks of matter? What is mass? What makes things move?

If you think these questions are fascinating, then you will enjoy studying physics. This A-level will provide a great stepping-stone to any science or engineering subject at university. A-level Physics has a high mathematical content, therefore it works well alongside A-level Mathematics.

If you want to investigate the limits of space, the beginning of time and everything in between, understand how the technology around you works or maybe save the planet and help people get better when they are ill then this course is for you. You will need to be a logical thinker and be confident using Mathematics.
