Following an Ofqual consultation,we have made changes to a number of our qualifications. The changes are designed to safeguard against ongoing public health concerns.
Please use the specification alongside this page which shows how our qualifications will differ in summer 2022.
We recognise that it has been difficult for students to demonstrate competitive situations in some sports and may continue to be in some instances. For summer 2022 we are willing to accept alternative forms of evidence to help support assessments (for example, alternatives to full competition where this is not accessible such as, training times if supported with Garmin/Strava, logs of competitive performance, Power of 10, and records of school/league/county/regional performances).
For 2021/22, we would like to return to visiting moderation if possible, and if centres and moderators support this approach. However, because there is clearly some potential for further disruption, some filmed evidence will be needed so that it can be used as an alternative basis for moderation.
We therefore advise that as soon as possible centres assess candidates and gather filmed evidence for their 2022 cohorts. Ideally this will be completed on an ongoing basis as the year progresses, especially in seasonal and off-site activities.
Discussions are still ongoing with regards to filmed evidence sample sizes, and we will communicate these details to you as soon as we can.
We would also suggest that planning aims to prioritise practical NEA assessment and evidence generation in the autumn term in case disruption increases as we head into winter.
Mark submission for 2022 will be 31 March for both components:
To help students prepare, advance information will be provided about the content of the written examinations. This will be released no later than 7 February 2022.
Students must complete all five components to be awarded OCR’s A Level in Physical Education in summer 2022.
Remember there are other permanent changes to the EAPI that are for first teach 2022. For more details, please read the Subject information update.
Centres will be required to provide further details to support moderation later in the autumn term. Updated forms to do this and how to access them will be communicated in the coming weeks.
Students must complete all four components to be awarded OCR’s AS Level in Physical Education in summer 2022
