IGCSE Physical Education

12 9 1

IGCSE pupils will follow the CIE IGCSE Physical Eduacation syllabus, which consists of two components. 

The PE syllabus encourages learners to develop knowledge, skills and understanding of a range of relevant physical activities as well as the ability to plan, perform and evaluate physical activities.

Pupils will gain an understanding of effective and safe performance and the role of sport and physical activity in society and in the wider world. 

The two components on which pupils will be assessed are a theory paper and a practical coursework component. 

The theory paper assesses pupils knowledge of anatomy and physiology; health, fitness and training; skill acquisition and psychology; and social, cultural and ethnical influences on sport. 

For the practical coursework, candidates undertake four physical activities from at least two of the seven categories: Games, Gymnastics, Dance, Athletics, Outdoor and Adventurous, Swimming and Combat actvities. 

This course not only offers pupils an excellent foundation for advanced study, but a genuine enjoyment for physical activity.
