A Level Physics

Course Information

Physics involves the study of how the Universe works; from the tiny particles that make up atoms, to the Solar System and beyond.

You will have the opportunity to understand the ideas that fundamentally changed the way we think about the Universe.

Students who study Physics at A Level also often take A Level Maths, as the two subjects support each other.

Many students also include an A level in another scientific discipline, such as Chemistry.

Other common complementary subjects are other numerate disciplines such as Economics, Computer Science and Geography.
