ADVANCED LEVEL PHYSICS 780

  1. Introduction

The aims, examination schemes and syllabus content, have been designed to take account of the needs of different groups of candidates: on the one hand, those who will not be continuing their studies beyond A level, and those who may be proceeding to higher education.  It is assumed that the syllabus will be taught as a two-year course, at a rate of six theory hours and two practical hours per week, to candidates who have taken an Ordinary level Physics course. The candidate’s programme of practical work will include both experimental work designed to support the candidate’s understanding of the principles of Physics and experiments which develop specific laboratory skills.

 

The aims of the syllabus set out below will closely match the objectives of teaching the course. The assessment objectives indicate the range of skills that will be tested in the examination. The list of operational objectives attempts to relate the content and skills to the examination papers as far as is possible.

 Cameroon GCE A Level Physics syllabus 2015

  1. Aims

The aims of the syllabus are:

  1. to foster the acquisition of knowledge and understanding of concepts and principles through the development of observational, practical and processing skills;
  2. to promote the application of concepts and principles of physics in technology and their social, economic and environmental implications;
  3. to encourage the study of physics through fieldwork and experimentation;
  4. To empower students with skills that will enable them to be competitive on the job market.

 

  1. Assessment objectives

The assessment objectives of the syllabus will test:

  • The ability to:
  • Recall basic physical principles, terminology, facts, and methods;
  • State how physics is fundamental to many technological developments;
  • Describe how physics contributes to the social, historical, environmental, technological and economic life of society.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of:
  • Scientific facts and concepts;
  • Scientific methods and techniques;
  • Scientific terminology;
  • Methods of presenting scientific information.
  • Apply and use:
  • Scientific facts and concepts;
  • Scientific methods and techniques;
  • Scientific terminology to communicate effectively;
  • Appropriate method to present scientific information;
  • Concepts and simple models in conjunction with laws and principles to interpret familiar or novel phenomena;
  • Familiar laboratory apparatus effectively, taking into account safety measures.
  • Analysis, Separate or organize:
  • Material or concepts into component parts.
  • Scientific methods and techniques.
  • Scientific terminology to communicate effectively.
