Studying Physics at A Level will provide you with the opportunity of getting to grips with fundamental questions concerning the universe and how it behaves. You will learn how to apply sophisticated mathematical calculations and the laws of physics to solve real-world problems.
An A Level in Physics will pave the way for you to a gain university degree in engineering or the physical sciences, or pursue a career in Science, Engineering, Information Technology, Statistics, and many other fields.
Note that our experienced University Services Adviser can advise on A Level courses and all aspects of university entrance including application support and references. These services are easy to access though our booking form.Apply Now
A Level Physics (Int) is open only to students based outside the UK. It builds directly on the work you will have done for IGCSE equivalent in the subject. Grade B or 6 in both Physics and Maths at IGCSE or the equivalent is required before starting on A Level Physics. Due to the advanced level of Mathematics required, and the overlap between the two subjects at A Level, we strongly recommend that you take A Level Maths alongside A Level Physics.
We also require that all A Level students have IGCSE English Language at Grade C/4 or above.
A Level Physics (Int) will prepare you for the Edexcel International Advanced Level syllabus, XPH01 (for AS) and YPH01 (for the full A Level).
For the International AS in Physics, you will take:
Paper 1: Physics on the Go (code WPH01) worth 40% of the AS grade and 20% of the overall A Level grade. (1 hour and 30 minutes)
Paper 2: Physics at Work (code WPH02) worth 40% of the AS grade and 20% of the overall A Level grade. (1 hour and 30 minutes)
Paper 3: Exploring Physics (code WPH03) worth 20% of the AS grade and 10% of the overall A Level grade. (1 hour and 20 minutes).
For the International A2 in Physics, you will take in addition:
Paper 4: Physics on the Move (code WPH04) worth 40% of the A2 grade and 20% of the overall A Level grade. (1 hour and 35 minutes)
Paper 5: Physics from Creation to Collapse (code WPH05) worth 40% of the A2 grade and 20% of the overall A Level grade. (1 hour and 35 minutes)
Paper 6: Experimental Physics (code WPH06) worth 20% of the A2 grade and 10% of the overall A Level grade. (1 hour and 20 minutes)
