Physics


ENTRY REQUIREMENT GCSE Physics or Combined Science Grade 7 GCSE Mathematics Grade 6 The above represent recommended grades. Each student will be considered on an individual basis.


This course combines theoretical studies of Physics principles as well as the uses and applications of Physics. Topics such as mechanics, waves, materials and electricity are studied in the first year. In the second year particle physics, further mechanics, electric and magnetic fields and cosmology are key topics. There are plenty of opportunities for practical work in the laboratory. There is a high level of Mathematics required for the course and it is highly recommended that students taking Physics also study A level Mathematics.


A Level (2 Year) Unit 1: 9PHO/01 1. 1 hour 45 minute exam 2. 90 marks 3. 30% of total qualification. This unit involves the study of Mechanics Electric circuits Further mechanics Electric and magnetic fields Nuclear and particle physics


Unit 2: 9PHO/02 • 1 hour 45 minute exam • 90 marks • 30% of total qualification. This unit involves the study of Materials Waves and particle nature of light* Thermodynamics Space


Nuclear radiation Gravitational fields Oscillations.


Unit 3: 9PHO/03 2 hour 30 minute exam 120 marks 40% total qualification. The paper will include questions that assess conceptual and theoretical understanding of experimental methods (indirect practical skills) that will draw on students’ experiences of the core practicals.


Unit 4: 9PHO/04 Science Practical Endorsements Pass/Fail


A Level Exam Board: Edexcel


There may be an opportunity for students to sit an AS exam at the end of Year 12, but this will be decided on an individual basis.
