GCSE PE Worth 1 GCSE (3 lessons a week, 2 practical & 1 theory) The course is 60% practically based and 40% theory based. 1 big written theory exam at the end of the course. You have to be good at PE and be able to perform in a variety of activities. You choose your best 4 to be examined in. You must have a keen interest in sport and how the body works. You must be working towards a NC level 5a at least, to be suitable for the course (see your teachers to see if you are on track to achieve this by the end of the year). You must have a track record of high participation in lessons, a positive attitude to PE and good organisation of kit. You must be willing to perform practically in all lessons – we very rarely have any notes excusing students from practical GCSE PE lessons!
BTEC SPORT Worth 1 GCSE with 3 lessons a week. The course is 75% coursework and 25% exam based with most lessons theory based but some will be practical at certain times. You do NOT need to be good at PE, but you need to have a strong interest in the world of PE and sport. You must be willing to lead others in some practical coaching sessions as part of the course will involve working towards achieving the ‘Sports Leader’ Award.
