The course will build on GCSE knowledge. Year 1 topics include: motion, energy, electric circuits, waves and quantum behaviour. At Year 2 you will discover more about Newton’s laws and momentum, uses of physics in medicine and the nuclear industry as well as what particle accelerators can tell us about the universe
You will be assessed by examination and practical work.
