Examples of Responses to Questions in the Examinations
In keeping with our drive here at CXC to enhance the support provided to candidates who are preparing to write our examinations, we are displaying on our website exemplars of candidates’ responses to examination questions. These are authentic, unedited responses. They are presented in the candidates’ own handwriting, accompanied by comments from the Examination Committee that indicate the Committee’s judgement of the quality of the responses and the justification for arriving at that judgement.
This is a pilot effort, covering only selected subjects. We at CXC welcome your feedback on how useful you find this information to be and, in particular, how we can improve on the provision of such information. Your comments will contribute to the future expansion and refinement of this material.

The study of Physical Education and Sport, not only allows students to work individually and cooperatively in the theoretical and practical components of the subject but also assists them in developing critical life skills. As a curricular inclusion, it provides students of varying abilities with experiences that facilitate physical, social, intellectual, cultural, spiritual and emotional growth. Skills related to decision-making, problem solving and critical thinking and the use of sport technology are acquired by students undertaking a course of study in Physical Education and Sport.

The Physical Education and Sport syllabus is made up of a Compulsory Core and three Options to be completed during the two-year course of study. Each candidate must do the Compulsory Core and three sports from at least two different Options.
