A Level Physics Overview

During this A Level  in Physics you will cover subjects like mechanics, particles, radiation and astrophysics. Due to the scope of topics covered A Level Physics is favoured among universities and employers.

You will develop and hone your skills in the subject as well as gaining a real enthusiasm for the subject matter. Physics makes an ideal choice for those students with interests in medicine, science and engineering.

Upon successful completion of the exam and practical assessments (as administered by AQA), you will have achieved an internationally recognised AQA A Level Physics.

A Level Physics Outline

This A Level is divided into 3 units:

Unit 1: Content from topics 1-5 and 6.1

Written examination: 2 hours. 34% of A-Level. 85 Marks

  • 60 marks = A mixture of short and long answer questions
  • 25 marks = Multiple choice questions

Unit 2: Content from topics 1 to 6.1, 6.2, 7 and 8

Written examination: 2 hours. 34% of A Level. 85 Marks

  • 60 marks = A mixture of short and long answer questions
  • 25 marks = Multiple choice questions

Unit 3:  Section A: Practical skills and data analysis & Section B: Students enter for one of topics 9, 10, 11, 12 or 13

Written examination: 2 hours. 32% of A Level. 80 Marks

  • 45 marks = A mixture of short and long answer questions on practical experiments and data analysis
  • 35 marks = A mixture of long and short answer questions on chosen optional topic

Practical Assessment

Your A-Level grade will be based on written examinations. However, to pass you must undergo an assessment of practical skills. These are:

  1. Investigation into the variation of the frequency of stationary waves on a string with length, tension and mass per unit length of the string
  2. Investigation of interference effects to include the Young’s slit experiment and interference by a diffraction grating
  3. Determination of by a free-fall method
  4. Determination of the Young modulus by a simple method
  5. Determination of resistivity of a wire using a micrometer, ammeter and voltmeter
  6. Investigation of the emf and internal resistance of electric cells and batteries by measuring the variation of the terminal pd of the cell with current in it
  7. Investigation into simple harmonic motion using a mass-spring system and a simple pendulum
  8. Investigation of Boyle’s (constant temperature) law and Charles’s (constant pressure) law for a gas
  9. Investigation of the charge and discharge of capacitors. Analysis techniques should include log-linear plotting leading to a determination of the time constant
  10. Investigate how the force on a wire varies with flux density, current and length of wire using a top pan balance
  11. Investigate, using a search coil and oscilloscope, the effect on magnetic flux linkage of varying the angle between a search coil and magnetic field direction
  12. Investigation of the inverse-square law for gamma radiation
