    HI guys,
    thought i'd start a thread since there is NEVER a decent one on here!
    Defo think PE is an under-rated subject! :unimpressed:
    People just assume its all practical!
    Share your thoughts...
    Exam tips - especially on tackling the 20 markers!

    What is your optional module? - i've got comparative, physiology and psychology! :hahaha:to those with biomechanics! -UNLUCKY! :eek3::facepalm:
    What are your practical sports and marks if known?
    Are you resiting the AS paper?
    Grade you need in this for uni?

    My modules are physiology, historical and psychology. How are you finding the physiology section? I just can't seem to remember any of it . I agree I feel for those doing biomechanics, I looked at some of the questions and 0_0 .

    thanks for making this thread MissGeorge-x
    it will definitely be a great help...i doubt a lot of people have started their intense revision for PE yet so i'm sure it will grow in the next couple of weeks.
    yeah 20 markers are a killer! lol I definitely need work on those

    comparative is the worst out of them all for me lol ...yeah i like USA !
    sports psych is easier because i do psychology at A2 so its pretty much the same in some aspects
    physiology needs work but i'm sure i can get my head around it soon.

    I retook the AS paper in January and did so much better, good luck
    I hate the physiology part too, my head just can't consume everything, especially the training programmes I just can't seem to remember all FITT principles to apply to the periodisation :/ . I'm exactly the same, my teacher taugh us it first as she thought it was the most difficult part, whereas it's the easiest!

    I find the psychology bit interesting, i suppose I should since I'll be studying it at uni! I'm glad I don't have to do the comparative section, looks boring although I've been stuck with the historical section :/ seriously who needs to know the development of sport?!

    When I revise I just write notes and notes and repeat the same thing, try an exam question then write one using the mark scheme and try and learn sections from it

    Where did you find the report?

    My teacher showed us the Jan 12 paper today
    The 20 markers were:
    Comparative- USA cultural factors that affect sporting excellence compared to Uk
    Psychology - Leadership (I'm gutted about this coz it's a walk in the park)
    Physiology- Ergogenic Aids (gutted about this as well)

    Overall it seemed like an easy paper so ours will probably be a bit harder

    Hey guys, my first post!

    Also doing this exam, I just find the amount of content to learn is ridiculous especially physiology section! I'm currently reducing non-relevant physiology work and re-writing all of it out neatly to the minimum amount of words possible but containing the relevant information.

    Anyone got any good tips for PE revision? I was thinking mind maps might be helpful. So much to learn and revise!
