Project Study, including Computing (word-processing) Skills
You will complete a self-study project on a topic of your choice that relates to the degree programme that you will undertake.

Mechanics 1
You will study vectors, forces and equilibrium, relative motion, Newton’s Laws of Motion, friction and work, energy and power.

Mechanics 2
You will continue your study of mechanics by examining advanced vectors, forces as fixed vectors, centres of gravity/centres of mass and particle dynamics.

Physics 1
You will concentrate on sound, reflection, refraction, interference, diffraction, electromagnetic waves, strengths of solids, fluids, heat and gases and the structure of the atom.

Physics 2
You will examine electrical current and charge, potential difference, resistance, capacitance, transistors and amplifiers, electrical fields, gravitational fields, magnetic fields and electromagnetic fields.

Pure Mathematics 2
You will look at further algebra, co-ordinate geometry, trigonometry, differentiation, integration, numerical methods and vectors.
