Course Description

A2 PHYSICS Next start date(s) Sep Course Location Ardleigh Green Is this course for me? The AQA Physics A/2 (6451) course will provide you with a seamless transition to A Level from previous studies and will develop your interest and enthusiasm for physics. This specification provides a you with a smooth pathway from A/S and a route to university courses in physics and other subjects in which physics is a key component. What will I study? The course is assessed by the Assessment and Qualifications Alliance (AQA) and can be broadly split into two sections, the A/S year and the A/2 year. If you study for a full A-level you must complete both sections. These are the compulsory subjects: This consists of TWO units which are assessed by written examinations plus ONE unit that assesses practical skills. Unit 4 - Fields and Further Mechanics Unit 5 - Nuclear and Thermal Physics plus Medical Physics Unit 6 - Investigative and Practical Skills in A/2 Physics The units in the A2 year also assess synoptically, which means that they contain material that also draws on knowledge from the A/S year. What are the entry requirements? You will be expected to have grade D in A/S Physics. What can I do next? A level Physics is an important qualification for many careers. Some students go on to study physics at university, leading to a career in research and development into high temperature semiconductors or more efficient ways of storing energy for cars. The majority of those who study A level Physics do so in order to apply their physics knowledge in another subject area at university e.g. many branches of engineering, electronics and meteorology. What employment does this relate to? A level Physics leads to a variety of careers like: food scientist, climatologist, medical physicist, radiographer, geophysicist, audio technician, oceanographer, chemist, ergonomics expert, naval architect etc. How will I be assessed? You will be assessed through regular internal tests whilst external assessment includes two written papers and a practical assessment.
