About Your Course

If you have a curious mind and are fascinated by the wonders of life, there is no better subject you can study than Physics. It is the avenue of study that focuses on figuring out how everything in life works, from basic devices like a can opener to more complex machinery like cars and natural occurrences like earthquakes and black holes.
 
Gaining academic qualifications in Physics can prepare you for a host of captivating careers that explore the unknown, you could become an Astronomer, Geophysicist, Meteorologist or even a Nenotechnologist! You can get started on your learning journey towards these roles by studying an International GCSE (iGCSE) in Physics, as a Level 2 qualification, it enables you to progress to higher level education in the subject.
 
During the course, you will study everything from forces and motion to electricity, energy resources and transfers, magnetism to radioactivity and astrophysics. Through these, you will learn about unifying patterns and themes in Physics and be able to use them in new and changing situations, all of which improves your analytical and logic skills. The course also addresses the need for complementary mathematical skills by covering a range of mathematical areas.
 
As a fully online course, extra care and attention have also been paid to ensure the content is interesting and engaging. This course has also been verified as adequate preparation for those continuing to further study in Physics and those aiming to work in a physics-related field.

This online iGCSE qualification builds on the content, knowledge and skills that are explored and developed in Key Stage 3, the programme of study aimed at ages 11–14, or international equivalents for Science.

As such, there are no entry requirements to enrol on this course. However, the assessments for this iGCSE are only available in English, and for this reason, each learner must be able to work in English.

It is recommended that learners can read and write in English at Level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

*Please note, the exam is not included in this course.

*You will have access to the course for 12 months only. You can purchase course extensions here

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 iGCSE exam!

*Please note, the exam is not included in this course.
