  • Learn about unifying patterns and themes in physics and use them in new and changing situations
  • Acquire knowledge and understanding of physical facts, terminology, concepts, principles and practical techniques
  • Apply the principles and concepts of physics, including those related to the applications of physics, to different contexts
  • Evaluate physical information, making judgements on the basis of this information
  • Appreciate the practical nature of physics, developing experimental and investigative skills based on correct and safe laboratory techniques
  • Analyse, interpret and evaluate data and experimental methods, drawing conclusions that are consistent with evidence from experimental activities and suggesting possible improvements and further investigations
  • Recognise the importance of accurate experimental work and reporting scientific methods in physics
  • Select, organise and present relevant information clearly and logically using appropriate vocabulary, definitions and conventions
  • Develop a logical approach to problem solving in a wider context
  • Select and apply appropriate areas of mathematics relevant to physics as set out under each topic
  • Prepare for more advanced courses in physics and for other courses that require knowledge of physics.

Exam Information

In the October of year 11, 12 and 13 parents and guardians will receive an email asking which exams the learner intends to take, and where they would like to take them. Parents and guardians must inform King’s InterHigh if they need assistance finding an exam centre by mid-October.

King’s InterHigh can support you in finding a local exam centre. It is then down to the individual to register with the centre of choice and pay the exam fees to the centre directly. As each exam centre sets their own fees we cannot provide accurate pricing, however as an example, you can see our own fees by clicking here
