OCR Sports Studies

Curriculum Overview

Sport is a key theme in education. The need for people to lead healthy and active rather than sedentary lifestyles is increasingly prominent, and this is reflected in the schools curriculum, where physical education and sport remains core. This qualifications seek to build upon this provision.

The Sports Studies qualification offers pupils the chance to develop different types of skills through largely practical means: communication, problem solving, team working, evaluation and analysis, performing under pressure, and formulating written findings from practical investigation are all transferable skills which can be learned and assessed through these qualifications and utilised in many other educational and employment settings.

How will I be assessed?

There are four units in the OCR Sports Studies module, each worth 25% of the final mark.

The Contemporary Issues in Sport unit is a written exam lasting 1 hour.

The remaining units consist of centre assessed tasks which are externally moderated by the exam board, OCR.
