The Edexcel course in Edexcel International GCSE Physics is designed at a standard equivalent to the UK GCSE Physics. It provides a solid basis for students wishing to progress to AS and Advanced GCE Level qualifications or vocational courses such as Engineering.

 
The Edexcel International GCSE Physics course is an excellent qualification for distance learners as it is assessed purely using externally assessed exam papers.
