AS and A2 Level Physics at The Willink School

Course description

We will follow the OCR specification.

At AS level there are taught modules on mechanics and on electrons, waves and photons. These are both assessed by written exams. There is also a practical skills module, assessed by tasks of a similar nature to the ISAs undertaken in the GCSE course.

At A2 level there are taught modules on the Newtonian world and on fields, particles and the frontiers of Physics. There is also another practical skills assessment, worth 20% of the A2 marks.

Entry requirements

You will be expected to have met the general entry requirements for the sixth form. You will also need grade C passes or above (from the Higher tier paper) in Core and Additional GCSE Science, or grade C passes or above (from the Higher tier paper) from Physics and at least one other science. Due to the relatively high level of numeracy needed for some aspects of Physics you must also have at least a C grade in Maths.
