My school only offered the BTEC physical education (sport) so it's all coursework, but I think it's more or less like the GCSE version.

We basically learn a bit about the psychological side of sport, fitness (we had to make our own fitness plan to see if it improved our skills in a certain sport and our class chose rock climbing), we also do coaching and did sports days/events with some primary schools. It kinda crosses over biology in some topics like respiration etc...

I don't exactly know about how hard the GCSE is, but if you put your mind to it it's quite easy to get high grades. My target is 4xD* (distinction*).

It is determined 60% by practical sports performance out of 90 in total. 10 of this 90 is coursework and 80 is sports performance.
The other 40% is one internal exam out of 80. Most ofit is basic biology covered in triple science but much easier with some additional aspects such as skeletal functions etc. I would say it is very easy to get an A although it differs from person to person. Out of 300 ums, (180 practical)(120 theory). You need 240 for an A.
