    It does, but I said that about AS physics at the end of GCSEs.

    For AQA, there are 2 choices. Astrophysics and radioactivity physics.

    For the very last question, I put that:

    There would be a spectrum of colours rather than just red
    The fringe spacing will be smaller because the maxima are wider and the minima are smaller (I think this is wrong)
    The central fringe would be white rather than red

    How many marks would this be?
    why do you think the second point is wrong?

    there's like 6 choices.
    I think medical and nuclear are the last 2

    what choices are there?
    and I'm hoping my teachers will let me choose my optional ones
    there are 3 options i know of in phya5, Astrophysics, Medical physics and turning points in physics. our teacher personally chose medical physics for us because she goes its the easiest out of all options, however it alot of written work and knowledge rather than calculations. so if your a mathsy person, astrophysics or turning points is for you. note that alot of what is in turning points will look familiar to you because it overlaps with phya1, just abit more complex. besides the options you have to do 2 sections: nuclear and thermal physics, they are maths based. and then when you look at phya4 god have mercy on us !!! REALLY CHALLENGING PAPER.

    Edit: found the 4th option, its applied physics

    Really? This is even more cool if this is the case. In my college prospectus. they only offer 2 options. I hope I am offered all 6 of them to choose from.
