A-Level / IA-Level Physics including exams

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 A/iA Level in as little as 12 months
  • Allows you to progress to university level study

Studying your A Level

Physics at this 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 black holes, 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.

This course bundle gives you access to all the A Level and iA Level Physics course material as well as the exams you’ll need to pass to gain your qualification.

The exams will cover everything from periodic motion to thermal physics and everything in between, presented as multiple-choice, short and long answer questions.

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 UK's leading providers of distance learning courses. Which makes us experts at providing you with a comprehensive Physics course.

This allows you to 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 exam – A Level exam sittings are held once per year in May or June, and iA Levels are 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/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.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

You will be unable to book your exam until all outstanding course fees are settled in full, this includes any associated charges deemed to be payable as per your initial contract.

All courses funded via our partner Premium Credit Limited, will need to be settled with them directly.

Frequently Asked Questions

A-Level Physics does involve a significant amount of mathematics. The course incorporates mathematical principles to describe and analyse physical phenomena, covering topics such as mechanics, electricity, and waves. A strong foundation in mathematical concepts, including algebra and calculus, is essential for understanding and solving problems in A-Level Physics. While mathematical skills are integral to the subject, the curriculum also emphasises conceptual understanding and the application of mathematical principles to real-world situations.
A-Level Physics is a fascinating subject to study because it explores the fundamental principles governing the universe, delving into the nature of matter, energy, and the forces that shape our world. It challenges students to think critically, solve complex problems, and apply theoretical concepts to real-world scenarios. The subject's broad scope, from subatomic particles to cosmological phenomena, fosters a sense of wonder and curiosity about the intricacies of the natural world. Additionally, A-Level Physics is dynamic, often at the forefront of technological advancements and scientific discoveries, making it an intellectually stimulating and ever-evolving field of study.
A-Level Physics is an incredibly useful qualification to have. It sharpens your problem-solving, analytical, and mathematical skills, opening doors to prestigious universities and degrees in STEM fields like engineering, medicine, and computer science. Employers value its rigorous training, making you a standout candidate in diverse fields, from finance to renewable energy. Overall, it's a challenging, rewarding investment that empowers you to understand the world and shape its future.
Absolutely! An A-Level in Physics can be a springboard to a rewarding career in the UK, both directly and by paving the way for high-earning degrees. If you’re looking for employment straight from A-Level, there are various entry-level technical roles you can pursue where physics knowledge is highly sought-after. These include jobs like laboratory technicians (£28,000+ per year), engineering technicians (£30,000+ per year), and data analysts (£33,000+ per year). If you use your A-Level to complete a physics degree, you could get a job in engineering as physicists are highly valued in various engineering fields. Aerospace engineers earn an average of £63,000, civil engineers earn around £52,000, and mechanical engineers earn an average of £49,000 per year. Or you could use your degree to go into physics research, earning an average of £47,000 per year with the potential to reach much higher in academia or industry. You could also use your physics degree to go into data science as physics skills like problem-solving and analysis are crucial in data science, a booming field with salaries reaching £70,000+.
Yes! Your A-Level Physics exams are included in this course option. After passing each end-of-unit assignment and your mock exams successfully, you will be ready to take your exam. You can also choose between A-Level or iA-Level when you book your exams.
