You will have 5 hours per week of timetabled lessons with the expectation of at least 5 hours per week of independent learning outside of lessons.
Students who complete this course can go on to a number of University courses including engineering.
Students can also go onto apprenticeship programmes as well as straight into work.
A reading list will be made available to you upon enrolment. Other equipment required include:
• A large pukka pad (or equivalent)

West Kent College is an excellent place to study A level Physics. Highly qualified subject specialist teachers in modern laboratories teach the course. Each laboratory is well equipped with up to date technology.
Students are supported in their independent work via Moodle, a virtual learning resource, which gives them access to lesson materials, videos and links to useful websites.
This course is particularly aimed at students who enjoyed the sciences at GCSE and want to expand on the knowledge that they have gained.
The assessment is entirely examination based.
