Does GCSE PE discount Cambridge Nationals in Sport Science and Sport Studies?
GCSE PE has a discount code of MA1, the same as Sport Studies. This means only one of the qualifications can contribute to performance tables for a student.
The discount code for Sport Science is MA11 and does not discount with GCSE PE. Both can contribute for a student.
If two qualifications have the same discount code, does that mean we cannot offer both?
You can offer both and the student will receive both qualifications. However, only one of the qualifications will count for the school in performance measures. Which of the two that will count for the school is determined by the ‘early entry rule’. The qualification taken first is the one that will contribute to performance tables. Further details about how the ‘early entry’ rule applies to Cambridge Nationals can be found on our website.
If a student completes both GCSE PE and Cambridge Nationals Sport Studies, which qualification will count?
