A-Level Physics (including exam and practical)

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 Level in as little as 12 months
  • Study the course and sit the exams with this course bundle

Studying your A Level

Physics at A 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 Physics course material as well as the three 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.

While the exams will determine your passing grade, practical knowledge is essential to the sciences. That is why you have the option of taking the practical exam alongside your studies. A separate endorsement of practical skills will be taken alongside the A Level. This will be assessed by teachers and will be based on direct observation of students’ competency in a range of skills that are not assessable in written exams.

Note that you will have to book your practical exams in advance of your written exams,  so take that into account when planning your studies.

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 A Level 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. The only specific deadline to work towards is your exam – exam sittings are held once per year in May or June.

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.

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 in Physics in a manner that reflects your lifestyle, commitments and your approach to learning.

Pursuing your career

An A 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.

In addition to their examination centres they also have dedicated science laboratories based in Birmingham, Bolton and Sheffield with the ability to deliver A Level science practicals all year round,  and access to another two science laboratories located in London.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

For those fascinated by understanding the fundamental laws that govern the universe, delving into the mysteries of particles, waves, and forces can be incredibly enjoyable. The sense of accomplishment that comes with solving challenging problems and the practical applications of theoretical concepts can make the learning experience gratifying. The hands-on experiments and real-world applications also add an exciting dimension to the course. However, if you find mathematical and abstract concepts less engaging, the level of enjoyment might vary. Overall, A-Level Physics has the potential to be both intellectually stimulating and fun for those with a genuine interest in exploring the wonders of the physical world.
Yes, A-Level Physics is a great choice for your future in terms of the degrees it can lead to and the job opportunities it opens up in the UK. A-Level Physics is a respected qualification by universities, and it can be a crucial step toward pursuing degrees in physics, engineering, mathematics, and related fields. Many STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) courses at universities prefer applicants with a strong background in A-Level Physics. In terms of jobs, A-Level Physics can open doors to a variety of careers. Graduates with a physics background are sought after in industries such as research and development, technology, finance, and engineering. Physics A-Level provides valuable analytical and problem-solving skills, making individuals well-suited for roles that require critical thinking and a strong scientific foundation. Whether you pursue a career directly related to physics or venture into interdisciplinary fields, the skills gained through A-Level Physics can enhance your employability and contribute to a wide range of professional opportunities.
Our tips on how to revise for A-Level Physics include summarising your notes and creating organised, concise revision materials. Use flashcards, mind maps, or summary sheets to condense information. Regularly practice solving problems and apply theoretical knowledge to real-world scenarios. Past papers and additional practice questions can be invaluable. Use diagrams, charts, and graphs to visualise abstract concepts, this not only aids understanding but also enhances memory recall. Teaching the material to someone else, even if it's just an imaginary audience, can also reinforce your understanding and help identify gaps in your knowledge.
Yes, you can! Our online Physics A-Level course can be studied entirely from the comfort of your home and at a time that suits you. It’s perfect if you’re planning to study around your job or childcare commitments.
This course bundle gives you access to all the A-Level Physics course material as well as the three exams you’ll need to pass to gain your qualification.
