Is physics a good a level?

Physics is a highly respected A-level. A good grade in physics at Level A shows an employer that you have analytical and mathematical skills that you can apply to real-life situations. A Level Physics will give you incredibly strong analytical and research skills. You'll be able to approach problems and resolve them in a methodical and logical way.

I don't dislike physics; it doesn't seem boring or particularly difficult to me either. But I enjoy my other subjects more, so when it came to choosing between physics and geography for my fourth AS level, I opted for the second one. I thought it would be good to take a course in humanities to balance the sciences. I'm not saying that my male physics teachers dissuaded me from taking the subject, but a higher proportion of female teachers could inspire more girls to study it.

Studying A Level Physics will develop your reasoning, problem solving and analysis skills to the next level. Physics is also part of the band of four, which includes mathematics, chemistry and biology, which normally you must choose at least two A-level to earn a variety of science degrees, including medicine and engineering. Physics is especially related to mathematics, so studying the two together can improve your skills in both. Mathematics can help you be a better physicist or develop an innovative new medical treatment.

Studying engineering at university generally requires A-levels in Mathematics and at least one other science, usually Physics. A Level Physics covers a wide range of topics to give you the foundation you need to become a competent physicist. However, that doesn't mean that studying physics doesn't bring with it some interesting career opportunities. Along with career opportunities, qualifications in these areas open up and it's easy to see the benefits of taking A-levels in Physics and Mathematics.

In other words, I am a specimen under the microscope in the research project recently announced by the Institute of Physics. I could see the practical reasons for studying biology, but it was difficult for me to relate physics to my daily life. It's a multifaceted subject that can lead to a fascinating and satisfying career, whether your interests lie in theoretical or experimental physics. Physicists ask some important questions, but they specialize in different areas and their work can be varied.

This module covers the study of biological and medical subjects and the applications of physical principles and techniques in medicine. I am not a zombie, hopelessly trapped in my conformist destiny to follow in the footsteps of girls who have dropped physics before me.
