Why study Physics?

Physics is the most fundamental of all of the Sciences. The work covered at A level will allow you to understand and analyse the most important fundamental questions about how the universe functions from the tiniest sub-atomic particles to the largest supernova and the heaviest black holes. A background in physics is a springboard to many careers, from chocolate production to cosmology, from financial services to engineering. Additionally, an A level in physics is an affirmation of a sound intellect for many other courses, such as medicine, and research suggests that students with physics A levels will more likely enter higher wage professions upon entering the world of work.
