Course Description

Electronics Course Type A-Level Introduction The WJEC Electronics course will enable students to develop an understanding of electronics, including the basis of computers and telecommunication systems. Much of the course is studied using practical problem-solving activities with hands-on experience of building circuits, as well as computerised simulations. There are three units of assessment in each of the AS course and the A2 course: a written examination in January and in May/June, and a practical project. Qualification AS/A Level Entry Requirements College entry requirements plus GCSE Grade C in Science and in Maths. Assessment The course is taught and assessed in units. Written examinations in January and May/June, and a project. Costs You may wish to buy a recommended book or software to help with the course. There may be small additional costs related to optional visits and trips. Duration 1 year to AS level and additional year to A level Other Details Subjects that link particularly well with this course are IT, Physics, Maths and Music Technology. Prior study of electronics is not important. To be successful in this course students should feel relatively confident in their ability to suggest and try out possible solutions to practical problems. Progression Options Students who are successful at AS level may wish to complete an additional year to achieve the A level qualification, from which higher study perhaps at degree level in this or a related area is a possibility. As part of a wider programme the course provides an excellent basis for progression to any career or university course. Electronics will support a career in a wide range of areas because electronic devices are all around us. Studying Electronics alongside Physics and Maths would be a strong combination for careers in any branch of Engineering.
