Physical Education A Level

Level A-level


What will I study?

Areas studied are applied anatomy and physiology, exercise physiology, biomechanics, skill acquisition, sports psychology, sport and society and contemporary issues in physical activity and sport. This course will be assessed via one exam assessment at the end of the second year to cover all of the modules taught. Practically you will also be assessed in one sporting activity, alongside an oral analysis of sporting activity performance.

Is this course right for me?

To study this subject you need to be a keen sportsperson who has an interest in the theoretical content of sport as the subject covers a wide range of these concepts.

Where next?
