The Pearson Edexcel International GCSE in Physics is designed for use in schools and colleges. It is part of a suite of International GCSE qualifications offered by Pearson. The course gives students the opportunity to experience physics within the context of their general education.
The design of the revised international GCSE aims to extend students’ knowledge and understanding by broadening and deepening skills, for example students develop the ability to: – focus on practical skills through a number of practicals listed in the specification content. These can be supplemented with other suggested practicals. The skills developed will be assessed through questions in written examinations – improve students’ analytical and logic skills by applying understanding of scientific concepts and principles to a range of situations. This will include some examination questions that are more problem-solving in style – address the need for mathematical skills to complement students’ physics skills by covering a range of mathematical areas. Progression International GCSE qualifications enable successful progression to A Level and beyond.
