Why do GCSE?

You should choose GCSE PE if you love being active and want to find out more about how to improve your performance

There are 2 main elements to the course, theory and practical.

Your theory mark will be made up out for 2 exam papers, each one worth 20% of your final grade, and 2 controlled assessments, each one worth 5%.

Practical is worth 50% of your final grade.  - You will be graded on your 4 best activites which will be marked out of 25 (and can include activities you do outside of school such as Dance, Horse Riding, Duke of Edinburgh, Martial arts, Skiing and Snowboarding).

It's really important that you are commited to improving your practical scores in your own time (i.e join clubs, play for school, work on your fitness) as you wont do ANY extra practical in lessons, you will work on your practical scores in normal P.E time.

For this reason we recommend that you only choose GCSE P.E if you play for, or belong to least 1 club outside of school.
