GCSE Physical Education New Specification From September 2016

Assessment
Pupils follow the Edexcel GCSE PE course which is comprised of:

  • 60% Practical Work
  • 40% Written Examination

Practical Work
All pupils complete activity blocks in the following areas:

  • Games 
  • Athletics 
  • Adventurous activities
  • Health Related Exercise

Pupils are assessed on their practical performances over the two year duration of the course with their four highest scoring activities going towards their final mark (48%). Pupils are also required to demonstrate their knowledge of the rules, techniques and their ability to analyse performance in one of their chosen activities (12%).

Written Examination
The paper comprises of three parts:

  • Part 1: Multiple Choice
  • Part 2: Short Answers Questions
  • Part 3: Scenario Questions 
     

The theoretical work can be divided up into three main sections:

  • Anatomy and Physiology (skeleton, muscles, joints, blood, respiratory system)
  • Exercise and training (health, fitness, diet, hygiene, drugs)
  • Safety aspects of physical activity (sports injuries and prevention)

Homework is set on a regular basis and pupils must be prepared to meet deadlines. Pupils are required to complete a piece of coursework based on the design and development of a Personal Exercise Programme (PEP). They must also research a series of questions based on analysing performance within a chosen sport. Additional resources and links to relevant PE based websites are also available through MOODLE.
