Hi, DS has made his option choices but we may have the opportunity to change from music to PE as the school has changed to IGCSE music. I am concerned about music as DS scraped his grade 4 violin and doesn't enjoy perfecting his pieces. I have been informed that the standard expected for an A* is equivalent to grade 5 distinction.
I know next to nothing about GCSE PE, but DS skis well and is reasonably fast, he runs, swims and cycles (all at a reasonable club but not excessive level). He thought that he would need to be good at rugby and football (he's awful at both) to be able to take the GCSE, but pupils at the school I work in can incorporate riding/skiing etc.
Does anyone know any more or have an opinion that could help us make the decision?
Edit: despite looking last night I missed the thread below where this is discussed in detail.
