Physics is a fundamental science subject and the key to understanding the world around us and the world beyond us. Physics is the study of matter, energy, force and motion, which can challenge our imagination and lead to world-changing discoveries such as lasers and computers.

This course has been developed for students who wish to continue with a study of Physics after GCSE. Some students may wish to follow a Physics course for only one year as an AS GCE, in order to broaden their curriculum. Others will continue their course for a further year to achieve A2. This A-Level will prepare students to progress into further education, to follow courses in Physics, Engineering, one of the other sciences or related subjects, or to enter employment where a knowledge of physics would be useful.

It is essential that you achieve a B grade or higher in Additional Science or Physics GCSE. You should also have achieved a grade B or higher in Maths at GCSE. It is useful if you also take Mathematics to AS or A2 level, but this is not essential but you definitely need a good positive attitude to study.
