Practical Vs Theory
Study topics such as the effects of excitation in nuclei, wave particle duality and Einstein’s photoelectric effect, mechanics and waves, gravitational fields including planetary motion and escape velocity, astronomical imaging systems and astrophysics. You will study:
- Measurements and their errors
- Particles and radiation
- Mechanics and energy
- Further mechanics and thermal physics
- Nuclear physics
And one of the following:
- Medical physics
- Engineering physics
- Turning points in physics
This course is 100% exam based. You will also be required to undertake a minimum of 12 assessed practicals.
I achieved A*, A*, A and secured a place at The University of Nottingham to study Theoretical Physics and work towards my PHD.
