GCSE Physics 4403 offers students the chance to gain a good understanding of:
the use and transfer of energy
waves, radiation and space
the application of Physics.
The specification is designed to give students the tools and concepts they need to be able to construct a scientific approach to solving problems. Students will learn to ask and answer questions about the fundamental laws that govern natural phenomena. This is done by integrating the 'How Science Works' approach throughout the specification.
Students are likely to be engaged by the aspects of the specification that they can relate to their everyday life such as the efficiency of electrical appliances and braking distances as well as larger concepts like nuclear fission and fusion and evidence of the Big Bang.
