GCSE-IGCSE-and-A-Level

The IGCSE Physics online course will help you acquire a body of scientific knowledge and the skills to apply this in domestic, industrial and environmental contexts. You will develop experimental and investigating skills based on safe, correct laboratory techniques.

You will learn to form hypotheses and design experiments to test them, and to evaluate, in terms of scientific knowledge, the benefits and drawbacks of scientific and technological developments.

And you will learn to select, organise and present information clearly and logically, using appropriate scientific terms and conventions.

Our IGCSE Physics aims to impart scientific knowledge and skills as well as foster an appreciation of the practical nature of physics.

The Physics IGCSE is appropriate for delivery in schools and colleges and is graded A* to G, with assessment via two exams
