Edexcel GCSE Physical Education (2016/2017)
Here, you'll find everything you need to prepare for GCSE Physical Education Full Course from 2016 (first assessment 2018) and GCSE Physical Education Short Course from 2017 (first assessment 2018), including our accredited specifications and sample assessment materials.
Supporting learning through practice
Our Performance Analysis Assessment and support materials are designed to allow a large section of the content to be taught in a practical way thus allowing theory to be understood through practice.
Students will receive a well-rounded introduction to the world of PE, sport and sport science through the combination of physical performance and academic challenges.
Our qualifications have a straightforward structure with four engaging and up-to-date components, assessed through externally examined papers and non-examined assessments designed to be accessible for all students.
The content builds on the understanding developed at the previous Key Stage, increasing breadth whilst avoiding unnecessary repetition and also ensuring that the learners new to the subject are appropriately supported.
We’ll have a programme of teaching and learning support to help you implement the new specifications, particularly with new and unfamiliar content and skills.
