What's covered?

This course expands on many concepts that you have already encountered in school PE lessons. Your studies will be centred around how the body works, how you learn and develop physical skills and the impact that physical activity has on young people developing a balanced, active and healthy lifestyle.

You will develop an understanding of the relationship between skill, strategy/composition, body and mind readiness so as to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of performance. This is delivered through seven distinct topics across two years.

What do you need?

You must have a minimum of five grades 9-4 (equivalent to A-- C), including English and Maths at grade 4 and grade 4 in a Science GCSE subject plus grade 5 in PE if taken.

How you are assessed

Assessment is both practical and written assessment:

  • Factors affecting participation in physical activity and sport.
  • Factors affecting optimal performance in physical activity and sport. Non-exam assessment: practical performance in one physical activity and sport. The written assessment contributes to 70% of your A Level grade and the practical assessment contributes towards 30%.
