Physics AS/A Level at Djanogly City Academy

Course description

Physicists explore the fundamental nature of almost everything we know of. They probe the furthest reaches of the earth to study the smallest pieces of matter. Join them to enter a world deep beneath the surface of normal human experience.

Entry requirements

A Level Physics builds on the work done in GCSE Science and GCSE Maths, so you’ll need a grade B result from both. Written communication is also important and you’ll need to be a strong writer.


There is no coursework on this course. However, your performance during practicals will be assessed. There are three exams at the end of the two years for A Level, all of which are two hours long.

At least 15% of the marks for A Level Physics are based on what you learned in your practicals. The AS Level has two exams at the end of the year, both are 90 minutes long

Future opportunities

Possible degree options include Mathematics, Physics, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, Civil Engineering, Economics and Business. Possible career options include a geophysicist/field seismologist, a healthcare scientist, medical physics, a radiation protection practitioner, a research scientist (physical sciences), a scientific laboratory technician, a meteorologist, a structural engineer and many more. You can also move into engineering, astrophysics, chemical physics, nanotechnology, renewable energy and more.
