If you have ever wondered how they manage to get the chocolatey bit to stay on top of a Jaffa Cake, or to work out the age of a helmet that has been uncovered by archaeologists, you have touched on what is involved in A Level Physics.
Our A Level course is context based, so you learn Physics through its applications in the world around us, for example in sport, archaeology and food manufacture. There is some Maths involved, but it is not really much harder than what you have covered at GCSE; you should have a B or higher in Maths and in Physics or Double Award Science. You will usually be taught by two members of the Physics staff and will take module exams at the end of Lower and Upper Sixth. There is a small element of coursework which basically involves planning and carrying out an experiment during selected lesson times.
Physics is the most fundamental of all the sciences and explains the world around us. It teaches you, amongst other things, to analyse and explain concepts quantitatively and qualitatively, so it is highly valued by employers and universities alike and can lead to a huge variety of careers. If you like problem solving and enjoy finding out why the physical world around you behaves like it does then Physics is for you!
