Physics is the most fundamental of all the sciences. You’ll study the physical properties of objects ranging in size from massive galaxies down to tiny sub-atomic particles. Physics is a challenging subject because it is an exact science, yet good fun because it is lively and practical. You’ll develop practical skills as you complete a wide variety of experiments illustrating and exploring the subjects studied.

Physics is essential for many Science and Engineering degree courses and particularly useful for careers in Astrophysics, Architecture and Engineering. The skills you will develop are valued by employers, including the ability to construct logical arguments, pay attention to detail and approach problem solving logically.
You will need a minimum grade 5 in Combined Science or at least two 5s from single Science GCSEs, including a 5 in Physics.
