This International A Level Physics CAIE Course with Cambridge builds on the skills acquired at GCSE (or equivalent) level. The syllabus includes the main theoretical concepts which are fundamental to the subject, a section on some current applications of physics, and a strong emphasis on advanced practical skills. Practical skills are assessed in a timetabled practical examination.

The emphasis throughout is on the understanding of concepts and the application of physics ideas in novel contexts as well as on the acquisition of knowledge. The course encourages creative thinking and problem-solving skills which are transferable to any future career path.

Cambridge International AS and A Level Physics is ideal for learners who want to study physics or a wide variety of related subjects at university or to follow a career in science.

What can I do with an A Level in Physics?

Students in the past have progressed onto the following degree courses:-

• Mathematics • Physics • Mechanical Engineering
• Computer Science • Civil Engineering
• Economics • Business

Studying Physics at University gives you all sorts of exciting career options, including:-

• Geophysicist • Healthcare scientist • Higher
education lecturer • Radiation protection
practitioner • Research scientist (physical
sciences) • Scientific laboratory technician
• Secondary school teacher • Meteorologist
• Structural engineer • Acoustic engineer
• Product/process development scientist
• Systems developer • Technical author

We recommend students check the university websites to find the most up-to-date entry requirements for courses they wish to study.

Previous Knowledge Required

There are no previous entry requirements for this course, however students are expected to have a reasonable standard of literacy. 

You have the freedom to start the course at any time and continue your studies at your own pace for a period of up to 24 months from initial registration with the full support of your Tutor.

Assessments

Students will be required to arrange and pay for their examinations/practicals at CAIE approved centre. We can provide an extensive list of these centres for you.

A Level Exams
There are five exams for the full A Level qualification.

Paper 1Paper 1Paper 1Exam Paper 4Paper 1A Level Qualification

AS Level Exams
There are three exams for the AS Level qualification.

Paper 1Paper 1Paper 1IAS Exams

Practical Assessment

Experimental skills will be assessed in Paper 3 and Paper 5.

In each of these papers, the questions may be based on Physics not included in the syllabus content, but students will be assessed on their practical skills rather than their knowledge of theory.  Throughout the course, you will cover practical scenarios in preparation for your exams. Where appropriate, students will be told exactly what to do and how to do it. Students will need to ensure that their chosen centre are able to provide them with the practical examinations. More information click here.

A Level Physics Online Course Outcome

On successful completion of all your exams, you will be awarded one of the following qualifications:

International A Level in Physics with CAIE | International AS Level in Physics with CAIE

The only other fee you will need to pay is for your exams which is due approximately six months prior and this will be paid directly to the exam centre.

FAQs

You can enrol online right now by Card or PayPal (Visa, Mastercard, Maestro and American Express). Alternatively, we also accept BACS transfer or we can send you a payment link.

Your A Level course will be online.  You will access it via our online portal.  

With our courses, we have learners from all over the world enrolled.  Therefore, if we restricted your learning to certain times, not everyone would be available.  All our courses are accessible 24/7 via our online secure portal.  Any videos on your portal would be pre-recorded meaning you can work through your course at your own pace.

By opting for our International A Level, you can study the course from anywhere and exam centres are located all over the world.  With our UK A Levels (AQA), you can study them from outside of the UK, however you would need to sit the actual exams for these within the UK.

You will be provided with eBooks for this course. If you want to purchase physical books in addition, then we can provide you with the book ISBN numbers.

The Guided learning hours for A Levels are as follows:-

AS Level: 180 hours

A Level:  360 hours

These figures are for guidance only. The number of hours needed to gain the qualification may vary depending on your previous experience of the subject.

Yes you will gain UCAS points and these depend on your final grade once you have completed your exams. 

If you are referring to A Levels at college then yes!

You will sit the same exam as thousands of students across the world in an exam centre, and achieve the same qualification as everyone else.

Provided you have completed enough work on the course within a reasonable amount of time, we will be able to provide a predicted grade / reference for university. 

Please provide at least 3 months notice for this, otherwise this will incur a small fee.

We want exams to be as competitively priced for our learners as possible and therefore that is why we direct them to the examination centres rather than charge upfront fees.
