Physics A Level at Haggerston School
Physics involves the study of the world around us in order to understand how nature works. We describe how the world works by formulating laws and theories. We test our ideas by making predictions and completing experiments. Theories and laws can describe how the smallest known parts of matter work, through to the birth and evolution of the universe.
Unit 1: Physics on the go. This includes studying forces and their effect on motion and the properties of different type of materials.
Unit 2: Physics at work. This includes studying the property of waves and Electricity.
Unit 3: Exploring Physics. The application of physics. This unit involves either a case study or a physics based visit.
6 GCSEs at grade A*-C including a C grade in English and at least two B grades
Units 1 and 2 are each assessed through a 1 ½ hour test. The test consists of multiple choices and short answer questions.
Unit 3 is assessed by means of an experimental report that is based on either a physics based visit or a case study.
