Sport BTEC

Never has the study of sport and exercise science been as important as it is today, especially after the success of Team GB in the Rio 2016 Olympics. Sport has now become a major business where there is a demand for sports scientists, experts in biomechanics, sports psychologists and nutritionists. This is a fascinating and absorbing subject, which will deepen your interest and allow you to explore three different areas surrounding the world of sport.

What will I study?

Over the two year course pupils will study four main Units.

  • Unit 1 – Anatomy and Physiology
  • Unit 2 – Fitness Training and Programming for Health, Sport and Well Being
  • Unit 3 – Professional Development in the Sports Industry
  • Unit 4 – Sports Leadership

How will I be assessed?

Unit 1 is assessed through a 2-hour written paper, which is set and marked by the exam board. This will take place in the summer exam series.

Unit 2 is assessed through a 2-hour written task, which is set and marked by the exam board. This will take place in the summer exam series.

Unit 3 is assessed through assignments, which are set and marked by the School.

Unit 4 is assessed through assignments, which are set and marked by the School.

Entry requirements

There are no specific requirements for this course but an enthusiastic interest in the subject and a commitment to conscientious study will bring success.

Course expenses

Occasional day visits to Exeter University, and other courses as they become available will usually cost £5 to £10. We expect all students to attend courses which are part of the specification.
