    Okay thank you, hopefully they are quite low. And I don't think so because no one can remember the questions..,

    I got 50/50 A* practical which is 120/120 UMS marks and in exam my teacher said I needed the following.
    59-A*
    43-A
    26-B
    1 mark for C
    However, if you got an A practical like my friends you will need 59 for an A not an A* and it will be 7-9 marks difference for rest of grade boundries. Hope this helps if u have questions ask me

    for the javelin one, I said that the muscle contraction was isotonic and then the other one I talked about how when the biceps contract, the triceps relax to bring about movement. These are antagonistic muscle pairs. something along those lines

    spelling, punction and grammar is included within the 6 marks. Our teacher told us, if you have a really good answer but have phonetic spellings and the sentence structures are not right, marks will be deducted. Like if your answer was 6 marks, it would go down to 5 or 4 depending on the how kind the examiner is

    had to be narcotics, peptide hormones increase oxygen level but weight training is anaerobic exercise, so it's not needed
    peptide hormones are a general catergory hgh is a peptide hormone that has similar effects to steriods, that was the correct answer

    Just to let everyone know, apparently a new writer wrote up our exam for 2015 hence why it was very hard to know what they wanted us to answer with. And I know that some PE departments have complained to the exam board.
    This made me feel a bit better as I found the exam really hard and normally I find them quite doable.

    But that's not on the specification, you only need to know EPO?
    Nope it's peptide, look it up. Naucotics wouldn't help weightlifter so at all.

    doesnt the triceps contract and biceps relax to cause extension? I thought it was how does the thrower get from flexing the elbow to extension. And for the serotonin question i put it is released after exercise and gives us a feel good feeling

    4) Initiatives include Sport England and PESSCL
    5) Another aim of an initiative- to develop the skill of elite performers
    6) Alcohol increases blood pressure

    Does anybody remember any more questions?
    Key infulence: people (for the friends), image (for newspaper) and resources (for elocution)
    for the initiative I put youth sport trust is that right?
    I also put to develop the level of skill for the common aim?
    seretonin is a hormone that is released during exercise, this contributes to the feel good factor, this will improve health because you will take more care for yourself if you feel good.

    no, alcohol is a depressant and it lowers blood pressure, low blood pressure is bad because it can result in heart failure
    I can tell you right now that you're wrong! An example of blood pressure increasing after alcohol is your cheeks going red. This is due to your capillaries dilating due to high systolic blood pressure. :cool:

    Yes you're right. That was certainly a question used to test your knowledge of the course.

    Another question testing you knowledge was the question about weight training effects on the skeletal system - tricky. But, if you had revised properly it should have been fine!
