GCSE PE: updates to November 2020 mark scheme and specification

Monday 14 Jun 2021

We’ve updated the November 2020 mark scheme for GCSE PE Paper 1 to correct an error relating to Question 11.1.

The question asks students to list, in order, numbers corresponding with parts of the body to demonstrate the pathway of air. The mark scheme gave the order as 3-2-5-4-1, however the correct order is 3-2-4-5-1. The specification also listed the parts of the body in the same, incorrect, sequence.

We have now corrected this and a revised mark scheme is now available on Centre Services and e-AQA secure key materials (SKM).

We’ve also updated the specification on our website. The updated specification also reflects some minor changes we’ve made to the skills section for Goalball.

We’re sorry for any confusion this may have caused.
