At year 11 in Math's, students will need to have passed Mathematics and Statistics 1.4: Demonstrate mathematical reasoning. Students will need to be good at algebraic manipulation and how to work with sin, cos, and tan. In Science, students will also need to to pass PESS 1.4: Demonstrate understanding of energy in a physical system, and one more Science standard. Head of Department approval otherwise.

Physics at this level is aimed at people with mathematical and theoretical skill who wish to develop an understanding of the basic concepts, principles and models which underlie the basis for all subsequent Sciences. It helps to develop skilled practical investigators and problem solvers who can work at the limits of their own understanding. It will develop their understanding of the nature of scientific knowledge and the consequent connection between Science, Technology and their importance to society.
