AS/A2

At Friends we study the Edexcel specification, for Advanced Subsidiary and Advanced GCE in Physical Education. Underpinning and informing its development is the 2012 Olympics, which offers a unique opportunity to inspire young people to participate. Some may take part as performers but there are many different ways of participating and this specification aims to help young people develop their potential for a career in sport via several routes. The specification features four units, two each at AS and A2. One unit at each level is content based and externally assessed. The other is performance-based and is internally assessed.
