1. The human body and movement in physical activity and sport
2. Socio-cultural influences and well-being in physical activity and sport
3. Non-exam assessment: Practical performance in physical activity and sport
Practical Components = 40% – 3 Practical performances in sport and 1 piece of analysis and evaluation coursework.
Theoretical Components = 60% – 2 exam papers each worth 30%
