Physics Level 3 AS and A2 Duration 1-2 years What will I study AS: Particles, quantum phenomena and electricity; mechanics, materials and waves. There are some new topics and those that were studied at GCSE are taken a bit further. A2: Fields and further mechanics; one optional topic chosen from astrophysics, medical physics, turning points in physics and applied physics in conjunction with nuclear and thermal physics. The A2 course brings in some higher-level mathematics but this is covered during the course. Practical skills are assessed internally each year and involve simple practical tasks as well as a longer one with a written component. Study Visits Possibility of some day visits. Cost Minimal. Assessment AS: Fully assessed by examination of 2 modules + practical assessment A2: Fully assessed by examination of 2 modules + practical assessment Useful Supporting Courses Valuable support for Mathematics and for other sciences, AS Electronics and Computing.
