Two 75minute exams at the end of the course. The exam has 3 parts to it;

 

1) A multiple choice section,

 

2) Longer answer questions to show level of understanding

 

3) Longer answer questions based on a given scenario released 3 months before the exam.

 

Regular homework will be set to assess students’ level of topic understanding.

Monitor your child’s active lifestyle in sport. Students taking GCSE should have a keen interest in a range of sports.

 

It is absolutely crucial that students learn key topic words throughout the course. This is sometimes tested in class but students must have the self-discipline to learn vocabulary themselves. Test your child on their knowledge of these key terms.

 

Controlled assessment (practical sports): students will compete in various sporting activities throughout the course as a performer. The best three sporting activities will be submitted. Students who participate in sports outside of school that we do not have the facilities to cater for can still be assessed through video. Parents/carers can support by recording this. Please check with your PE teacher for further details.

Other ways in which parents/carers can help:

 

●  Encourage your son’s or daughter’s interest in all aspects of sport, through performing, watching and reading about it.

●  Support them, if possible, in taking part in extra-curricular clubs.

●  Ask your child to teach you some aspects of the PE course they are learning – this will help them enormously.

●  Encourage them to work together with other students from their class, joint revision sessions, helping each other learn controlled assessment material etc.
