just wanted to ask those who are currently doing or have done pe a level. Just want their opinions on the course, what grade their aiming and stuff like that. A lot people say apparently Pe is 'easy' without even taking it.
I took PE along with biology, chemistry and maths. (Currently in year 12)
PE is okay, its reputation is going up, it's not a dos by any means, it's a good rounded subject.
PE includes so much, it's like a taster of many A-Levels, you do history, anatomy, psychology, physiology, nutrition and a lot more.
People who say it's 'easy' without taking it are in the wrong. You can look at the specimen yourself, I doubt you'll be able to answer pretty much any of it.
Hope this helps.
hey i am taking it with human biology politics and economics.
yeah i find biology helps it so i dont find it hard to be honest.
it is an enjoyable subjest A2 is harder i guess but not impossible. like woody says there are many aspects to it so it interesting.
dont choose you A levels by how people see it as, choose what you like. but think carefully as some very top unis have it black listed
sorry if this hasnt helped
Hey, I'm taking PE along with chemistry, maths & biology. Aiming for an A.
Its definitely my most enjoyable subject but as said above many people sterotype it to be easy which its not in anyway, this really pisses me (and my teachers) off e.g. my class has had 4 practical lessons since the start as there is so much to learn. Overall if you have an interest in sport and are doing well in the GCSE course then go for it.
thanks everyone for you output, you've been helpful!!
4 pracitcal lessons thats 4 more than ive had. We have to do all the practical side of it in our own time aswell as theres so much to learn, and suprisingly everyone i know that isnt taking it seems to think thats all we do in our lessons, if only they knew the amount of work there is, but yea its interesting and if you've got a passion for the subject then you'll probably find it fairly easy and enjoyable
haha we've only had 4 sessions to practice our sports that are being assessed, but yeah I'm finding it ok as its the only lesson I actually want to read around the subject for.
From almost every single person ive spoke to bout A level P.E they say its an extremely hard subject, ive just sat my gcse in P.E and im pretty sure i have got an A in it however as the course went on i seemed to find it more and more boring, will i be able to do A Level P.e and how hard really is it could some people say wht they got at gcse n wht they got in A level for it, Thanks.
