Course Description

Course Level: Level 3 Entry Requirements: 5 GCSE?? s at grade C or above, including Mathematics, English and Science or Double Award Science at grade CC, and a minimum average points score of 5.0. Course Description: This subject encourages students to develop essential knowledge and understanding of concepts of electronics and the skills needed for the use of these in new and changing situations. The course helps students develop an understanding of the link between theory and practical work. Course Content: ? Systems Synthesis ? Sequential Logic Systems and Boolean in Algebra ? Transistors and MOSFETs ? Operational Amplifiers ? 555 Timer Circuits ? Filter Circuits ? Power Amplifiers ? Counters ? RC Networks ? Electronic Control Systems ? Communication Systems Year 1 - AS Level This is the first year of the full A Level course. Students can finish at the end of Year 1 with an AS Level in Electronics or continue on to Year 2 to take the full A Level qualification. Module 1 Foundation Electronics System Synthesis, Logic Gates and Boolean Algebra, Current, Voltage, Power, Resistance, Diodes, Resistive Input Transducers, Transistors and MOSFETs, Output Devices, Operational Amplifiers, Capacitors, RC Networks (dc only), 555 Timer Circuit. Module 2 Further Electronics Design and Simplification of Combinational Logic Systems, Sequential Logic Systems, Counters, Operational Amplifiers, Inverting Amplifier, Non-inverting Amplifier, Summing Amplifier, Filter Circuits, Power Amplifiers. Unit 3 Coursework Project. Assessment: AS Examination 5431 Unit 1 Module 1 Written Paper 30% of the total AS marks 1? hours - 15% of the total A Level marks 5-8 compulsory short structured questions and one long question Assesses Module 1. Unit 2 Module 2 Written Paper 40% of the total AS marks 1? hours - 20% of the total A Level marks 5-8 compulsory short structured questions and one long question. Assesses Module 2. Unit 3 30% of the total AS marks 15% of the total A Level marks Coursework Project and Report Focuses on Modules 1 and 2. Year 2 - A Level Students must have succeeded at AS Level to gain entry to the A2 course. Module 3 Electronic Control Systems Microprocessor Control Systems Programming, Neural Networks, Interfacing, Schmitt Trigger Circuits, Additional Input and Output Devices. Module 4 Communications Systems Radio Receivers, Mobile Communications, Digital Communications, Opteletronics. Unit 6 Coursework project Assessment: A2 Examination 6431 Unit 4 Module 3 Written Paper 15% of the total A Level marks 1? hours 5-8 short structural questions and one long question. Unit 5 Module 4: Written Paper 20% of the total A Level marks 1? hours 5-8 short structural questions and one long question. Unit 6 Coursework project 15% of the total A Level marks Assessments are usually taken in January and June. Resits Candidates can resit modules in the January and June examination series during the course, with the highest mark counting towards the qualification. Candidates can study the qualification more than once. However, marks cannot be transferred from one qualification to another. Intensive One Year A Level Resit Programme This programme is for students who need to improve their A Level grades. Most subjects require that the A Level should have already been examined. All subjects will require students to undertake a one-year intensive programme which combines both AS and A Level modules ?? students will also be able to undertake new AS Levels along with studying for A Levels in the one-year programme. The programme will appeal to students who did not achieve the grades they require to study for the degree of their choice. Students are invited from other institutions to continue their studies in the Sixth Form Centre. Whilst it is desirable that students transferring should have studied with the same examination board, most of the examination grades are transferable as long as the students have already been examined at A
