Your practical mark is worth 40% of your final grade.
You will be graded on your 3 best activities, which will be marked out of 20 (and can/should include activities you do outside of school). 1 of these sports needs to be an individual sport, 1 needs to be a team sport and the other can be either a team or individual sport.
You will also have to complete an Analysing and Evaluating Performance controlled assessment, where you look at your strengths and weaknesses as a performer and suggest ways to improve these weaknesses.
