Course Description

Course Level: Level 3 Entry Requirements: 5 GCSEs at grade C or above including Mathematics, English and Physics or Double Award Science at grade CC, and a minimum average points score of 5.3. Course Description: This subject provides an excellent platform for those wishing to continue with the study of pure and applied science at degree level either as the main or as a subsidiary subject. It is an essential requirement for a career in ophthalmics, engineering, astronomy, pilot training (civil or RAF) and can also be applied to many other careers. Course Content: ? Particles, Electromagnetic Radiation and Quantum Phenomena ? Mechanics and Molecular Kinetic ? Current Electricity and Elastic Properties of Solids ? Waves, Gravitational and Electric Fields, Magnetic Effects of Current ? Nuclear Instability ? Discovery of the Electron, Wave Particle Duality, Special Relativity 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 Physics or continue on to Year 2 to take the full A Level qualification. Module 1 Particles, Radiation and Quantum Phenomena Particles, Electromagnetic Radiation and Quantum Phenomena. Module 2 Mechanics and Molecular Kinetic Theory Mechanics, Molecular Kinetic Theory Model. Module 3 Current Electricity and Elastic Properties of Solids Current Electricity, Elastic Properties of Solids.

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 Si
