Edexcel GCSE Physics Paper 2

In this paper, students are tested for their understanding of the latter half of the Edexcel Physics content. Paper 2 builds on the content of paper one, adding details to some previous learnings whilst also including new topics. The goal of this paper as usual is to make sure that students are prepared for their next steps in life, whether that be A level study or going straight into the workplace. Physics equips students with important mathematical skills and a logical commonsense approach to thinking that can help them to succeed after their GCSEs.

The topics in this paper begin with SP8 and SP9 which cover forces and energy, including work and power, vector diagrams, rotational forces and how objects affect each other. Then students learn about electricity and circuits, in-depth. SP10 includes all of the basics of electricity and how circuits work, such as the various vector and scalar quantities involved (current, charge, resistance etc.). Next up is an overview of static electricity as an extension to SP10, including the dangers of static electricity and electric fields. On a fundamentally similar topic of magnetism and electromagnetism, SP12 and SP13 extend on SP10 and SP11 to introduce how magnets work, what magnetic fields are and also how electromagnetic induction facilitates the modern world of electrical appliances through the national grid and transformers. Following the dive into electromagnetism, SP14 and SP15 address a crossover point between chemistry and physics of particles and density, along with the physics that underpin how matter behaves, e.g. when stretching and bending. If you want to find out more about what we can do for you, contact us or maybe you want to check how you might do in the first physics exam, Edexcel GCSE Physics Paper 1.
