Level 2 Physics

12PHY
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr P. Bache

Recommended Prior Learning

Must pass level 1 Physics Mechanics external (recommend Merit or Excellence) and Electricity internal. minimum 10 credits at Level 1 Mathematics (including Algebra).


This is an ideal course for students who want to extend their scientific knowledge and skills in Physics. Physics is an essential prerequisite for careers in engineering of all types and is also very important for things like architecture, medicine and aviation. Physics demands a good level of skills in mathematics.

The course has 18 Level one Literacy credits and 12 Numeracy.
