GCSE PE

This course is divided into three components for assessment. The theory component is two end of course exams on all of the course content worth 60% of the overall mark. The practical component is worth 40% of the total mark and students are assessed in three different activities which make up this assessment. They are assessed purely as a performer in these activities. Due to the nature of the course students must be talented in PE, but must also be able to cope with the academic demands of the course.
