National 5 Physical Education

The National 5 course consists of 2 components:

  • Practical Performance (50%)
  • Portfolio (50%)

Practical Performance

The practical element of the course revolves around assessment in two different activities. Each of these activities will be assessed out of 30 marks. Your combined score in these activities contributes 50% to your overall award. Both activities will be assessed as a one-off performance; how you do on the day determines your score. 


Section 1: Understanding the factors that impact on performance.

Section 2: Planning, developing and implementing approaches to enhance personal performance.

Section 3: Monitoring, recording and evaluating performance development. Pupils complete the portfolio is class time using the data they have gathered throughout the course.
