    Hi i'm currently in year 11 and hoping to take A level Physics however i'm a bit confused. On the sheet received from my 6th form it says i will study:
    .measurements and their errors
    .Particles and raditaiton
    .waves
    .Mechanics and materials
    .Further mechanics and thermal physics
    .fields and their consequences
    .Nuclear physics
    Then it says i can choose a topic to study of my choice. Can anyone just explain this in a bit more detail for me.

    Here's a link for the new spec aqa a-level physics:

    http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/resource...-2015-V1-2.PDF

    On paper 3 for your a-level there are two sections section a and section b. Section a is compulsory and everyone will have to learn the relevant content for that section, section b is a topic of your choice and you have to choose 1 from the following 5 options:
    astrophysics, medical physics, engineering physics, turning points in physics and electronics.
