Unit 2: Forces in Equilibrium, Acceleration & Projectile Motion, Motion and Force, Work, Energy & Power, Material Analysis, Waves, Optics. Unit 3: Practical Skills Assessment Full A Level The above 3 units and: Unit 4: Force & Momentum, Circular Motion, Simple Harmonic Motion, Gravitational Fields, Electric Fields, Capacitors, Magnetic Fields, Electromagnetic Induction. Unit 5: Radioactivity, Nuclear Energy, Thermal Physics, Gases. Students choose to study one of the following optional units: Astrophysics, Medical Physics, Engineering Physics, Electronics or Turning Points in Physics Unit 6: Practical Skills Assessment
A Grade B or better in Additional Science GCSE. A Grade B in Mathematics would be an advantage in order to cope with the equations used throughout the course.
The course is taught using a variety of methods and theoretical concepts are linked, wherever possible, to practical investigation and problem solving exercises.
Physics A-level is usually a requirement for any science-based course at university. From plumbing to forensic science to engineering, an understanding of the principles of Physics should prove advantageous in a wide range of professions. There is a shortage of Physics teachers in the UK at present.
