Teaching and learning
The Physical Education syllabus is both practical and theoretical, covering anatomy and physiology, movement skills and contemporary studies in sport. Learners are encouraged to try out a range of physical activities, including team and individual sports, games, and outdoor activities, and then use the theoretical knowledge they have gained to analyse the different factors influencing performance.
The course also encourages learners to understand and explain global trends in Physical Education and Sport. This syllabus replaces Cambridge International AS Level Physical Education (8666) which was examined for the last time in November 2009.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
There are no updates for this syllabus
