A new site has been setup to aid pupils - National 4&5 Physics.

The SQA Physics Data booklet can be found here. This booklet still has to be updated for National 3,4 and 5 but will be soon. In the meantime the Standard Grade page on page 3 of the booklet will be very helpful, giving all the formulae which you will need to know.

In third year pupils will get the chance to complete level 4 CfE outcomes while covering an amount of National 4 & 5 outcomes. This will ensure pupils' receive their CfE entitlement while at the same time preparing them National qualifications should they choose to continue in fourth year.

This will include practical and research based investigations centered around topics of the National 4 & 5 topics. At the end of the year pupils will be presented to the SQA in either National 4 or National 5 qualification based on their attainment to date.

The topics to be covered are:

Dynamics & Space

Waves and Radiation

Energy and Electricity
