This A-level physics book is designed to follow the OCR GCE Physics A specification. For the OCR B 'Advancing Physics' specification, see A-level Physics (Advancing Physics). You can use this book as a revision guide, or as another explanation of concepts that you may not fully understand. At A2 level, in the second year of study, you must take the two core A2 modules along with one of the option modules.
If you find any mistakes, errors, broken links, or if you are able to make the content easier to understand, please do not hesitate to edit and expand on existing content.
The old syllabus for Physics A had the following modules:
A2 Core Modules
A2 Option Modules
You are only required to complete one of the optional modules.
The new specification contains the following modules
AS New Specification Modules
- Electrons, waves and photons
A2 New Specification Modules
- The Newtonian world
- Fields, particles and frontiers of physics
In both AS and A2, practical modules have to be completed, consisting of qualitative, quantitative and evaluative sections.
