    Do you know what would I need to have got in the exam if i got an a* in the course work and practical section?
    it depends what score you got in practical, i got 48/50 in practical and my teacher told me I needed 65/80 in the test to get an A*.

    For the Olympic weightlifter wanting to carry more weight was the peptide hormones or narcotic analgesics? (Multiple choice question)
    I put peptide hormones as they increase muscle mass whereas narcotic analgesics are pain relievers

    Yeah, honestly I found it hard, it was so vague, like the gymnast one, do they really need reaction time and it wasn't clear what they wanted in each question

    A* Boundary for last year's exam was 64/80 and for Practical was 47/50.
    This year, I imagine the Practical A* mark might stay at 47, maybe increase to 48. The exam's A* boundary will probably decrease to about 62, that exam was of a higher demand than last year's, though it went quite smoothly for me!

    What did you write for why the gymnast needed reaction time one?

    had to be narcotics, peptide hormones increase oxygen level but weight training is anaerobic exercise, so it's not needed
    No the answer was definitely peptide hormones as there are 2 peptide hormones, EPO and HGH which is human growth hormone and that is used to build up muscle mass and therefore improve muscular strength

    Yeah I wrote that too, but I thought of Peptide Hormones as EPO (making more blood cells - weightlifters don't need it). Peptide Hormones themselves increase muscle mass, so Narcotics was wrong :*
