Leaving Certificate Physical Education 2020

A new specification for Leaving Certificate Physical Education was introduced on a phased basis in September 2018 and will be examined for the first time in 2020. The subject is only available to Leaving certificate students in phase schools. This means that examination in this subject will be limited to students of the phase schools at the 2020 and 2021 Leaving Certificate examinations. The subject consists of;

  • a final written examination worth 50% of the marks,
  • a physical activity project to be completed under the supervision of the class teacher, worth 20% of the marks,
  • a performance assessment to be completed under the supervision of the class teacher, worth 30% of the marks available for this subject.

All components will be assessed externally. The subject will be rolled out nationally for Leaving Certificate students commencing in September 2020, for examination in 2022.
