The course is divided into 6 modules that take into account the needs of different groups of students, whether they will study Physics beyond A-level or not. It aims to make students more aware of the relevance of Physics to their everyday lives and to show the importance of Physics as a human endeavour that interacts with social, philosophical, economic and industrial matters.

Course content

Module 1: Development of practical skills.
Module 2: Foundations of physics.
Module 3: Forces and motion.
Module 4: Electrons, waves, and photons.
Module 5: Newtonian world and astrophysics.
Module 6: Particles and medical physics.

Entry requirements

In addition to the main entry requirements, students must have at least BB at GCSE level in Science and Additional Science, or B in GCSE Chemistry, Biology and Physics, along with a grade 7 in GCSE Mathematics.


Students are assessed by a combination of three external written examinations covering all six units at the end of Year 13.

There is also an assessment on practical skills but this does not count towards the final grade and is reported separately as either pass or fail.
