Modern physicists have been responsible for some of the greatest achievements of our era. Without our understanding of atomic theory, we would not have computers, the internet or smartphones - the digital age, as we know it, would not exist. Without quantum mechanics, we would not have lasers or satellite navigation. Who knows where future scientific discoveries and inventions will take us?
If you’re up for shaping tomorrow’s world, studying A Level Physics could take you to the frontline of the latest emerging technology. Whether you are working in a field directly related to physics, such as nuclear physics or astronomy, or one that simply uses the skills you’ve gained, your knowledge and experience can make a difference to the world as a whole.
