A-Level / IA-Level Physics - exams not included

This course at a glance

  • Gain a deeper understanding of key scientific principles
  • Study everything from Particle Physics to Astrophysics
  • Find out the way the universe works
  • Complete this in as little as 6 months
  • Allows you to progress to university level study
  • Study around your existing commitments

Studying your A-Level / IA-Level

Physics at A/iA Level gives you the opportunity to study the phenomena of the universe and the theories which underpin it. 

During your course you will study the various facets of Physics including Particles and Radiation, Nuclear Physics, Astrophysics and Mechanics.

As you explore each of these subjects you will cover a range of topics including supernovas and blackholes, molecular kinetic theory, quarks and antiquarks.

You will gain a superior understanding of the key principles which will allow you to develop hypotheses of your own in preparation for your further study.

Upon completion of the course you will have the knowledge required to take your study of Physics to degree level and beyond.

Getting Started

learndirect is one of the UKs leading providers of distance learning courses. Which makes us experts at providing you with a comprehensive Physics course. This course is designed to cover both the AQA A Level and the Pearson IA-Level specifications, so you have the choice of which version to take. 

You can build your learning around your work, family and other commitments. There are no classrooms, no evening classes and no timetables.

Because your course is entirely online you can study at a pace that suits you. Which means you can complete the course as quickly (or as slowly) as you like. The only specific deadline to work towards is your exams – A-Level exam sittings are held once per year in May or June; and IA-Levels are held twice a year in summer and autumn.

Our online student portal has all the learning materials you need to complete your course. As soon as you’ve enrolled it’ll be ready and waiting for you to begin.

You will also get the support of a dedicated and qualified tutor throughout the course. They will provide guidance and feedback on your assignments as well as be on hand for any advice.

Ultimately this allows you to study and complete your A-Level / IA-Level in Physics in a manner that reflects your lifestyle, commitments and your approach to learning.

Pursuing your career

An A-Level or IA-Level in Physics can allow you to go on to study Physics at university. However, your desired university will have entry requirements so be sure to check the grade required in this and associated subjects.

Modules

During your studies you will cover the following modules:

  • Introduction to Physics
  • Measurements and their errors
  • Particles and radiation
  • Waves
  • Mechanics and materials
  • Electricity
  • Further mechanics and thermal physics
  • Fields and their consequences
  • Nuclear physics
  • Astrophysics
  • Medical physics
  • Engineering physics
  • Turning points in physics
  • Electronics

Entry Requirements

There are no entry requirements, but a GCSE or IGCSE in this subject would be beneficial.

Average completion timeframe

The average time it takes to complete the course is 2 years.

Exams required

Exams are not included.

Is Membership Required?

No membership is required to enrol on this course.

Extension Rules

£40 for six months, maximum of twice. If expired more than six months ago, or have already had two extensions, then they need to restart the course and pay again.

Course Fees

All course fees, inclusive of all payment plans including our Premium Credit Limited option, must be settled before certification can be ordered.

*You will have access to the course for 24 months.

At the end of each unit you will find a Tutor Marked Assignment (TMA). This is completed online and submitted to your tutor. Once assessed your tutor will return your work complete with its final grade and feedback. Once you’ve successfully passed each assignment you’ll be ready to take your exam!

If you decide to take the exams at the end of this course and pass, you will have gained an A-Level or IA-Level in Physics. This will enable you to progress to further and higher education programmes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Physics A-Level is often considered challenging due to its abstract concepts and mathematical components. However, many students find the difficulty rewarding, as physics provides a profound understanding of the fundamental principles governing the universe. The subject encourages critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and a deep curiosity about the natural world. Those who enjoy the challenge appreciate the sense of accomplishment that comes from unravelling complex phenomena, and making connections between theoretical concepts and real-world applications. Physics enthusiasts often find joy in exploring the mysteries of the universe, from the intricacies of subatomic particles to the vastness of cosmological phenomena, making the difficulty of the A-Level a worthwhile journey for those passionate about understanding the underlying laws of nature.
Our online A-Level Physics course encompasses a diverse range of modules, providing a comprehensive understanding of fundamental principles. Students delve into the precision of scientific measurements and the consideration of potential errors. They also study particles and radiation, which explores the subatomic realm, introducing concepts like quantum mechanics and the behaviour of particles. When studying waves, they delve into the nature of oscillations and wave phenomena. In mechanics and materials, students are introduced to classical mechanics, covering topics like motion, forces, and materials properties. The electricity module focuses on electrical circuits and the behaviour of charged particles. Further mechanics and thermal physics extend the mechanics concepts, incorporating thermodynamics. Fields and their consequences explores gravitational and electric fields, while nuclear physics delves into the structure and reactions of atomic nuclei. This comprehensive curriculum equips students with a broad foundation in physics, emphasising both theoretical understanding and practical applications.
Yes, A-Level Physics is widely respected in the UK for its rigorous academic nature and its role in fostering critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Physics is often regarded as a challenging subject that requires a strong grasp of mathematical concepts and abstract reasoning. Successfully completing A-Level Physics is a significant achievement, and it is highly valued by universities and employers alike. The skills developed through studying physics, such as analytical thinking and the ability to understand complex systems, are applicable across a variety of fields, further enhancing the respect for A-Level Physics. Moreover, the subject's relevance in addressing global challenges and contributing to technological advancements underscores its importance, solidifying its reputation as a respected and prestigious A-Level in the UK.
A-Level Physics opens doors to a diverse and exciting future in the UK, whether you crave the cutting-edge research of a physics degree (think astrophysics or engineering) or the practical application in fields like medicine, finance, or tech. You'll develop in-demand problem-solving and analytical skills, boosting your employability and earning potential across a wide range of careers, from robotics engineer to medical physicist, with salaries often exceeding the national average.
No, this course option does not include the exam, though the course materials prepare you to take it. You can opt for our alternative version of this online A-Level Physics course which includes the exams if you prefer.
