    is there such a thing as further A level physics

    just wondering as we have further maths and there are several extra modules to do eg health, nuclear, astrophysics etc

    Unfortunately no, there is no Further Physics at A-level. There is an AEA in Physics, and I did have a look at it, but I didn't find it particularly helpful or enjoyable.

    If you're a real keeno, it wouldn't do you any harm to learn about as many of the "options" at A-level as you like. I was examined on the Turning Points option, but read about the nuclear and astrophysics options because I was interested. If I'd known at the time that they'd come in useful at degree level I would have learnt them properly and done some problems on them!

    There's never anything stopping you from more general reading. Just because it won't be examined, doesn't mean it's not worth learning. If you're good at Physics at A-level, you'll have a lot of spare time to get a good broad grounding in the subject; this is time that you will not have at uni, unfortunately, since everything is examined!
