What forms do we need to submit?

These forms can all be found in the 'Syllabus Support' section, here:

  1. Rank Order Assessment form - one of these forms should be completed for each activity submitted by the centre and should list all of the candidates who took part in that activity in rank.
  2. The Coursework Assessment Summary form should be completed and submitted for external moderation together with the other evidence.

Resubmitting moderated coursework from 2020 onward.

From 2020, we are changing our policy on the re-submission of moderated coursework. You will no longer be able to resubmit moderated coursework for a future series.

From 2020, if a candidate would like to re-sit the syllabus and take forward their coursework mark, you will need to enter them for an option that includes the coursework component as a carried forward mark. To help you to do this, we have created new entry options for Cambridge International AS & A Level Physical Education (9396). These new entry options allow candidates to carry forward their AS coursework as a single component.

An overview of the entry options available for 9396 is below. To confirm what entry options are available for a syllabus, refer to the Cambridge Guide to Making Entries for the relevant series. This guide is available from the 'Support Materials' section of CIE Direct.

An overview of the entry options available for 9396 from 2020 onward

Candidates for Cambridge International AS Level certification take Papers 1 and 2. Candidates may either:
• take Papers 1 and 2 in a single exam series
or
• carry forward their mark for Paper 2 to a future series, subject to the requirements set out in the Cambridge Handbook.

Candidates who have received Cambridge International AS Level certification and wish to continue their studies to the full Cambridge International A Level qualification may:
• carry forward their Cambridge International AS Level marks and take Papers 3 and 4 in the exam series in which they require certification
or
• carry forward their mark for Paper 2 and take Papers 1, 3 and 4 in the exam series in which they require certification.

Candidates taking the full Cambridge International A Level qualification at the end of the course take all four papers in a single exam series. The Cambridge International AS Level forms 50 per cent of the assessment weighting of the full Cambridge International A Level.
