    It was an average paper for me. Luckily, I got 48/50 in the practical exam, so with a bit of luck, I should have got an A*. What did everyone write for the last 6 mark question, the question about when an 800m runner would need fast reactions, the question about interval training for 10000m and 100m runners, the question about priority groups, and the question about why the elite basketball player would be a good coach?
    I also got 48/50 haha. For the last six mark question I wrote about antagonistic muscle pairs, flexion and extension, isotonic movement, how the skeletal system supports movement etc. I hope I got that right!

    would this be right as well
    I wrote
    they need to have reaction time when the opponents make a slight mistake and he capitalise on it and overtake them
    well something along the lines of that
    yeah that sounds about right, you just said it the other way round to me

    What did you guys write for the 'why are performance enhancing drugs banned?'
    i wrote the following reasons:
    1) they are obviously giving athletes an unfair advantage over participants that don't use drugs- (gave an example of beta blockers)

    2) They do lots of physical damage to your body and have harmful side effects
    (gave example of beta blockers side effects so thats seriously low BP and dehydration)

    1. i said that they by using the drugs they have an advantage, therefore, it's not fair on the others

    2.also,that young people look up to role models and therefore if they take it then it will have an negative impact on them and the younger generation

    you know the risk assessment, question where you had the ice hockey picture and the sailing picture. For the sailing picture i wrote you may drown for the risk and to prevent this i wrote 'inflatable vest' cos my mind went blank and yh
    would i get a mark for that?
    That's correct since I asked my PE teacher. I went the difficult way and said the sail would reduce the force of the wind on the boat preventing it from tipping over.

    for diet one i talked about macro and micro nutrients and then talked about y each one is important

    for agility question I wrote
    get cones and set them up in a line 10m apart from each other and then you can improve ur agility by running in and out of it
    and for speed I wrote
    get 2 cones and set them up 35m apart from each other and then I said to sprint from the first cone to the other cone

    I talked about:

    1. the fact they carry severe side effects(and gave examples)
    2. the fact it is "not in the theme of sport" and gives players an unfair advantage

    do you think I would get a mark for saying
    young people look up at athletes as role models, therefore, it would have a bad impact on the younger generation and themselves

    Yes, you would get the mark. But seriously, the exam is over now; stop checking every question because it will just build up negative feelings within you with each question you realise you answered incorrectly. Forget about PE and spend your time more effectively revising for other examinations; if you are well prepared, you will feel so happy and confident after the exam thus you will feel it is completely unnecessary to log onto TSR and check you answer afterwards.
