Updates to GCSE, AS and A-level PE specifications and NEA guides

Wednesday 23 Sep 2020

In September 2019, the Department for Education (DfE) published revised activity lists for GCSE, and AS and A-level qualifications. You’ll already know that these new PE activities can be taught from September 2020, and will be assessed at AS in 2021 and in 2022 for GCSE and A-level.

We’ve updated our specifications to include the new activities and they are now available on our website on the subject pages:

We've also updated our non-exam assessment (NEA) guides to give further detail on the assessment of these new activities. The updated guides can be found here:

Please note that these updated NEA guides will not reflect any of the changes for Summer 2021. We’ll send guidance about moderation arrangements for 2021 separately.
