Physics AS/A2 at Islington Sixth Form Consortium (IC6)
The word 'Physics' on your application form for a job or a place at college or university immediately says important things about you. You are logical, you can deal with practical things, you can work with other people to solve problems, you can write clear explanations and you can understand when things are explained to you. For any employer these things are essential.
