Review of GCSE, AS and A level physical education activity list

Closed 20 Dec 2018

Opened 24 Oct 2018


The Department for Education is inviting proposals to add activities to the published GCSE, AS and A level physical education (PE) activity list.


Why your views matter

The Department for Education published subject content for reformed physical education (PE) GCSE, AS and A levels in England in January 2015.


AS and A level:

Both sets of subject content include a list of activities in which students can be assessed as part of these qualifications. 

Alongside publication of the subject content, the Department also announced that it would carry out a review of the activity list once the first of the new PE GCSEs, AS and A levels had been awarded in summer 2018. Accordingly, we are now inviting proposals to add activities to the published list.
