 Year 12  Physical Education

Course title: A-Level Physical Education Exam board: OCR Specification code: H555
How will students be assessed?
Students will sit two external exams, be assessed in one practical activity and carry out an analysis of performance in one sport by the end of Year 13.  Students are expected to participate in their sport throughout the two year course and provide evidence of their own performance for assessment up dates.

Component 1: Physiological Factors Affecting Performance (inc. Anatomy and Physiology, Exercise Physiology and Biomechanics)

Assessment:  two hour external exam  worth 30%

This group of topics focuses on key systems of the human body involved in movement and physical activity. Candidates will develop their knowledge and understanding of the changes within these body systems prior to exercise, during exercise of differing intensities, and during recovery. Application of this theoretical knowledge will enable candidates to understand how changes in physiological states can influence performance in physical activities and sport. Candidates will be expected to be able to interpret data and graphs relating to changes in these body systems during exercise of differing intensities and during recovery.

 

Component 2: Psychological Factors Affecting Performance (Skill Acquisition and Sports Psychology)

Assessment: one hour external exam worth 20%

This component focuses on the psychological factors affecting physical activities and sports, including: models and theories that affect learning and performance in physical activities; how different methods of training and feedback work and why their effectiveness differs from person to person; group dynamics and the effects of leadership and stress on performers. Through the study of this component, candidates will gain a deeper understanding of the underlying psychological factors that influence our performance in physical activity and sport. They will learn how to apply the theories to practical examples, giving guidance and feedback in constructive ways that are suited to that individual’s personality; therefore assisting in developing practical performance in physical activities and sports.

Component 3: Socio-cultural and Contemporary Issues (Contemporary issues in Sport, Sociology and History of Sport)

Assessment: one hour external exam worth 20%

This component focuses on the sociological and contemporary factors that influence and affect physical activity and sport for both the audience and the performer and how sport affects society. It includes the emergence and evolution of modern sport and how social and cultural factors shaped the characteristics of sports and pastimes in preindustrial and post-industrial Britain. The impact of the modern Olympic Games will be understood as well as the impact on society of hosting global sporting events. The ever-evolving modern technology and its influence on sport performers and spectators will be understood and practical examples will be used by candidates to show the effect of modern technology

Component 4: Performance within Physical Education

Assessment: Non examined assessment in One practical sport worth 15% and the Evaluation and Analysis of Performance for Improvement (EAPI) worth 15%

Learners will be required to undertake two parts within this component. Part 1: Performance/coaching of a sport or activity from the approved DfE list. Part 2: The Evaluation and Analysis of Performance for Improvement (EAPI) of a sport or activity from the approved DfE list. This does not have to be the same sport or activity that was undertaken in part 1, although it can be. Learners will identify and justify the major area of weakness within the performance to prioritise for improvement and will propose a long term (2-3 months) development plan to improve the area of performance identified. This component is assessed via NEA.

Year 13  Physical Education

Course title: A-Level Physical Education Exam board: OCR Specification code: H555
How will students be assessed?
Students will sit two external exams, be assessed in one practical activity and carry out an analysis of performance in one sport by the end of Year 13.  Students are expected to participate in their sport throughout the two year course and provide evidence of their own performance for assessment up dates.

Component 1: Physiological Factors Affecting Performance (inc. Anatomy and Physiology, Exercise Physiology and Biomechanics)

Assessment:  two hour external exam  worth 30%

This group of topics focuses on key systems of the human body involved in movement and physical activity. Candidates will develop their knowledge and understanding of the changes within these body systems prior to exercise, during exercise of differing intensities, and during recovery. Application of this theoretical knowledge will enable candidates to understand how changes in physiological states can influence performance in physical activities and sport. Candidates will be expected to be able to interpret data and graphs relating to changes in these body systems during exercise of differing intensities and during recovery.

Component 2: Psychological Factors Affecting Performance (Skill Acquisition and Sports Psychology)

Assessment: one hour external exam worth 20%

This component focuses on the psychological factors affecting physical activities and sports, including: models and theories that affect learning and performance in physical activities; how different methods of training and feedback work and why their effectiveness differs from person to person; group dynamics and the effects of leadership and stress on performers. Through the study of this component, candidates will gain a deeper understanding of the underlying psychological factors that influence our performance in physical activity and sport. They will learn how to apply the theories to practical examples, giving guidance and feedback in constructive ways that are suited to that individual’s personality; therefore assisting in developing practical performance in physical activities and sports.

Component 3: Socio-cultural and Contemporary Issues (Contemporary issues in Sport, Sociology and History of Sport)

Assessment: one hour external exam worth 20%

This component focuses on the sociological and contemporary factors that influence and affect physical activity and sport for both the audience and the performer and how sport affects society. It includes the emergence and evolution of modern sport and how social and cultural factors shaped the characteristics of sports and pastimes in preindustrial and post-industrial Britain. The impact of the modern Olympic Games will be understood as well as the impact on society of hosting global sporting events. The ever-evolving modern technology and its influence on sport performers and spectators will be understood and practical examples will be used by candidates to show the effect of modern technology

Component 4: Performance within Physical Education

Assessment: Non examined assessment in One practical sport worth 15% and the Evaluation and Analysis of Performance for Improvement (EAPI) worth 15%

Learners will be required to undertake two parts within this component. Part 1: Performance/coaching of a sport or activity from the approved DfE list. Part 2: The Evaluation and Analysis of Performance for Improvement (EAPI) of a sport or activity from the approved DfE list. This does not have to be the same sport or activity that was undertaken in part 1, although it can be. Learners will identify and justify the major area of weakness within the performance to prioritise for improvement and will propose a long term (2-3 months) development plan to improve the area of performance identified. This component is assessed via NEA.
