The Upper 6th is dedicated to the A2 course. There are two further units of study this year as well as another practical assessment.
Unit 4 is entitled "Fields and further mechanics" and Unit 5 covers "Nuclear and thermal physics" and the "Turning points in Physics" option. Unit 6 covers investigative and practical skills. You can find the full specification here. The A2 Physics course is assessed at the end of the year as shown in the table below:
Note that to achieve an A* grade a candidate must score 80% overall and average 90% in the A2 units.
Useful documents to support these modules will appear below as we work our way through the course.
