    I put slippery rocks too, and now I regret it! I don't think it is a mark because that is a hazard for outdoor adventurous activities

    I did this yesterday, needed 34/40 UMS for an A, don't think i got that!

    Found the funds question quite difficult, i thought it was talking about what would happen if the young person didn't have funds but some people on here seem to think it was more about the council not having funds and stuff so that isn't a good start!

    Also the hazards outside: i put glass on the field, not having protection on posts (rugby) etc.

    The last question was good, if only most questions were like that.

    The grade boundaries for the last exam for b453 in january weren't too good guys...
    Raw out of 60: A*/56 A/52 B/48 C/44 D/39 E/34 F/29 G/24 U/0

    The grade boundaries are so high because the examination boards want to gain a reputation of sports studies as a hard and difficult subject and not just a subject that 'you can do PE and get a gcse from'

    Anyway if anyone else remembers more questions please post! Hope you all did well!

    Im not sure but i know some of the question were roughly :

    Where is synovial fluid found and what does it do?[4]

    How does lactic acid affect a person in maintaining physical activity?[3]

    Name three short term effects of physical activity for the respiratory system.[3]

    Describe using practical examples, how someone can learn and develop skills.[6] (Not sure about that one)

    If ii remember anymore i'll post them up here again :')

    You should have said something according to this ' I would increase the intensity to put a higher stress and demand on the body. I would increase the frequency to improve their overall fitness, and I would increase the type and time both to avoid tedium and increase the length of sessions' this is what a modal answer would be but anything according to his i.e increasing each one would get u full marks.

    Don't worry, I don't think many of us were confident before we sat this exam either! Maybe try learning acronyms for the different categories?
    Then as soon as the exam starts ask for a spare sheet of paper and write them all down, that way you can refer to that instead of having to remember everything straight from your memory.
    Good luck! I'm sure you'll do fine
