AS and A-level Physics

  • Teaching from: September 2015
  • Exams from: June 2016 (AS), June 2017 (A-level)
  • Specification code: 7407 7408
  • QAN code: 601/4746/5; 601/4747/7

We listened to and involved teachers every step of the way when we developed these physics specifications that will inspire and motivate your students and lay the foundations for further study in physics or engineering.

Our core content is largely the same allowing you to use many of your existing resources. Our specifications allow you to choose the context and applications to bring the subject to life. The content is presented in a straightforward way so that lesson planning is easier.

We're passionate about practical work and know it's at the heart of all good science teaching. That's why you have more choice about your practical activities.
