About the GCSE Physics
This International GCSE or simply the IGCSE in Physics is the science that describes how the world works. It is usually considered the most fundamental of sciences. The physics course introduces you to areas such as electricity, forces, momentum, heat, light, magnetism and even about the space, planets and galaxy.
The course is packed with plenty of examples, diagrams and explanations to aid your understanding and help you visualise the topics as you work through them. You will learn to select, organise and present information clearly and logically using appropriate scientific terms and conventions. The physics is a good first step towards a career in areas including astronomy, environmental science and most of the engineering branches such as aeronautical, electrical, medical, petroleum, electronics, nuclear engineering etc.
Studying the Pearson-Edexcel IGCSE curriculum in physics is an appropriate qualification for distance learning in terms of teaching and receiving education and taking the formal examinations. Once you have completed your course, you will have prepared yourself to attend an external formal exam in either of the British Council or one of the Pearson-Edexcel approved examination centers in your country of residence.
Accreditation and Course Code
The course prepares you to sit for AQA examination in the GCSE physics in any AQA approved examination center across the UK, or if you are living outside the UK then you may check with the nearest British Council branch to you if they offer AQA exams (many provides). The full name of the qualifications is:
AQA GCSE in Combined Science Trilogy (Exam Code: 8463)
Academic requirements: You don't need any previous qualifications to enrol in any of our GCSE courses, you just need some basic maths for this course. For student who needs some mathematics push or brush up, we have designed for them a short course in mathematics preparation to study before starting the course, that is to fill up any gap in maths basics skills. The course is most suitable to applicants who has studied KS3, grade 8 or equivalent.
English language requirement: If your first language is English then you may skip this section.

The GCSE in physics gives the student the opportunity to progress to the AS-level in physics. The second option is to add it together with another four GCSE subjects to qualify you to meet most of British university foundation year admission criteria (the number of GCSE subjects needed for adission depends on each university requirements). Physics qualification allows you to progress smoothly to various areas of science and engineering branches.
The course is designed to prepare students for the AQA examination in the GCSE physics qualification, course code 8463. Topics you will learn in your GCSE in the physics course including:
- Particle model of matter
- Atomic structure
- Magnetism and electromagnetism
- Space physics (physics only)
Duration of The Course and Study Period
The duration of any of our GCSE courses is 16 months, however, student has the flexibility to finish it earlier. Each GCSE course would need approximately 300 study hours for each course; hence you may estimate the time needed for completing your course as below:
- For 16 months study plan: you would need 5 hours a week per each GCSE subject.
- For 12 months study plan: you would need 7 hours a week per 1 subject.
- For 9 months study plan: you would need about 10 hours a week per 1 subject.
For each of the cases above we have allowed for 8 weeks revision period before the exam which we strongly recommend in order to revise and practice past exams papers. Other factors to be taken into considerations when thinking of the duration needed to complete your course are things such as the number of subjects you study concurrently whether you are employed or fully dedicated to studying the courses, your initial English language skills in reading and writing and other life commitments.
It is very important for you to know that your formal exams are externally assessed; that means you won’t be examined by OBA when you complete your study but by the examiner board i.e. by AQA for this course. The marks you achieve in your formal exams counts by 100% toward your qualifications while the ongoing internal exams you take with OBA do not contribute towards your qualification marks.
