Lower 6thNote: this material relates to the old AQA specification, with last examinations for those Upper 6th students retaking only in Summer 2016. If youare currently in the Lower 6th, this page is not for you.
In the Lower 6th we start the A level course. There are three units of study this year.
Unit 1 is entitled "Particles, quantum phenomena and electricity" and unit 2 is "Mechanics, materials and waves". Unit 3 covers investigative and practical skills. You can find the full specification here. The AS Physics course is assessed at the end of the year as shown in the table below:
Useful documents to support these modules will appear below as we work our way through the course.
