Physics at Visions Learning Trust UTC

Course description

A-level Physics allows students to appreciate how fundamental Science works and to study optional topics that particularly interest them – including Astrophysics, Medical Physics and Applied Physics.

There are six units in the specification – three at AS and three at A2. Four of the units are assessed by exam. There are two units assessing investigative and practical skills. These can be completed via a teacher-assessed or examiner-assessed route.

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.

A-level consultations have been launched. Find out what this means for your subject on our Changes to A-levels page.


Entry requirements

It is strongly recommended that learners starting a Year 12 programme that includes AS and A-level courses achieve at least 3 GCSEs at grade B in addition to the requirements given above.
