Course Description

Physics is arguably the most exciting part of all science and technology. Its explains everything from quarks to quasars, bosons to black holes and deals with both living and inanimate systems. Physics is playing an important part in the development of telecommunications, medical diagnosis, laser surgery, aircraft design and in countless other applications, both in industry and the home. An understanding of the concepts of Physics leads some way to understanding the nature of life itself. Physics is the 'glue' which holds the sciences together. The course has a practical content and students are expected to carry out investigations and report upon them. We are continually increasing the amount of computer interfacing in the laboratory. Lectures are backed up by demonstrations and computer simulations Entry Requirements Students need to have achieved 5 GCSE's or more. This should include at least a Grade B (or higher) for Core Science and a grade B (or higher) for Additional Science at the Higher Tier. You should also have at least a grade C in English and Maths. Course Content AS Level consists of three units: ? Unit 1: Particle, Quantum Phenomena and Electricity ? Unit 2: Mechanics, Materials and Waves ? Unit 3: Investigative and Practical Skills.
