Subject choices: Physics

It delves into the concepts that explain the universe, from the very small subatomic right through to cosmology. Studying Physics A Level will start you on the journey of discovery into understanding how it all fits together.

Although not an easy subject, Physics lays the foundation for many careers. Studying Science subjects, Computer Science, Business, Architecture and many others at university all benefit from the logical and mathematical thinking skills that are developed at A Level. The practical skills learnt are also valuable at degree level and Physics is compulsory for all those wishing to study Engineering at university.
