Physics at St Ambrose Barlow RC Sixth Form

Course description

A Level Physics allows students to appreciate how fundamental Science
works and to study topics including Force and Waves, Medical Physics and
Applied Physics. There are six modules in the specification.
A Level Physics builds on the concepts and skills developed in the Physics
GCSE and is particularly suitable for students who have the skills and
knowledge associated with a GCSE Additional Science course or equivalent.
Assessment
The course is assessed by examination at the end of the course. There is
also an assessment of practical skills and students are expected to carry out
a minimum of 12 practical activities during the two year course.
What qualifications do I need?
To study Physics A-level you must have achieved at least 2 Cs in core and
additional GCSE science or separate/triple sciences.
What can I do next?
Physics A-level can lead to further study at degree level in a range of
scientific disciplines such as Physics, Astrophysics, Theoretical Physics and
Mathematics.
Physics A-level is crucial for the further study of Physics and Astrophysics
at University and can lead to careers in Engineering and the energy sector.
