GCSE PE involves a broad mixture of the practical and the theoretical and if you like sport then you'll find this absolutely fascinating. You'll be choosing a selection of different sports to study and to get involved with, building on your performance skills within each of them and learning the rules, skill and tactics. These will be assessed throughout the course and you may be asked to specialise in one of them. You'll also be learning how performances are evaluated and how improvement can be planned, scheduled and measured.

In terms of the theoretical aspects of the course you will be learning what constitutes a healthy lifestyle and a healthy body; there is some study of anatomy and physiology in this section. The written component to the course does involve an examination and the skills required can be improved by accessing the Marked by Teachers website where you can find a number of GCSE PE essay examples to learn from.

Studying PE at GCSE level is a great introduction to the subject a A level, and students often continue on to study Sport Science at university.
