60% Internal Coursework (2 units)
40% External Exam (1 exam – 1hr 15m)
The Cambridge National in sport studies provides students with the knowledge and understanding of how to live a healthy and active lifestyle, enabling them to make informed choices about their own physical development. Students complete 3 units over 2 years:
- Unit 1— Contemporary Issues in Sport (External Exam with 40% of overall grade)
- Unit 2—Performance and leadership in Sporting Activities (40% of overall grade)
- Unit 4– Sport and the Media (20% of overall grade)
The course covers a wide range of topics across the 3 units, allowing pupils the chance to lead their own sports session to year 7 pupils and evaluate and assess their own practical performance.
As the course is predominately coursework based students must have access to a laptop and/or tablet. It is also imperative that pupils are strong practically. Pupils should be taking part in competitive sport both in extra curricular teams for school and/or in community clubs.
