Theoretical/speculative orientation of Alevel boards in Physicsd

  1. Dec 16, 2004 #1
    The three UK A level examination boards do not appear to examine to the same level of theoretical and speculative physics. Reading through the syllabi I suspect that OCR Syllabus A requires more theory than most, and less disgorging of learnt information. I'd be grateful for advice on this, and in particular whether any Board penalises candidates who use mathematics that is not part of the mathematical requirements of the Board. Some of the examiners reports may imply that some boards do so penalise candidates.
