ASI Course Guide 24/25


A wide range of topics

The course will cover a wide range of topics in Physics, Chemistry and Maths, including: 

  • Physics: Mechanics, waves, electricity and magnetism, quantum physics, nuclear physics 

  • Chemistry: Inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, analytical chemistry 

  • Maths: Pure mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics 

Physics is an exciting subject which aims to explain how things work from the smallest to the largest of scales, from nanotechnology to the universe itself. 

Chemistry is a prestigious and recognised high-standard subject by employers and universities in all disciplines. Chemistry should be considered as an essential requirement for those considering careers in the aerospace and space sectors. 

Mathematics at this level consists of the study of Pure Mathematics and the study of the application of mathematics to the physical world: Statistics (for understanding and interpreting information) and Decision Mathematics (for understanding the mathematics involved in Business and Computing). The course develops understanding and resourcefulness in the use of mathematics. 

To gain the AS award, you will study two pure mathematics core units (C1 and C2) covering topics in algebra, trigonometry, calculus and coordinate geometry, amongst others, and the D1 application unit in Decision Maths. 

To convert your AS level Mathematics into A Level Mathematics you study two further pure mathematics core units (C3 and C4) covering more algebra, trigonometry, calculus, and other topics, and an application unit in Statistics (S1). 

The course will also cover specific topics related to the aerospace and space sectors through a unique enrichment experience including trips/visits and guest speakers.
