    I said something like initiatives encourage young people to take part by creating pe lessons to try the sport and get involved, I mentioned youth sports trust..........does this sound wrong?

    Bike question I said about how the bike replicates the physical activity so it was specific and for the 10,000 meter question I said in the race it will include the runner running at different paces for example medium jog throughout the race but towards the end it'll be more like a sprint and this is similar to interval as it has changes in speed.
    Yeah I put that the bike is specific to his sport and therefore would work the relevant muscle groups and make his body more specific for the sport and give him a better chance of sucess... probably wrong

    For the 10,000m runner I said that he could do a 5000m run and then sprint a 100m runner - this would build his CV fitness with slight anaerobic work to simulate the end of a race where he would have a sprint finish with his other competitors - again probably wrong....

    I swear I probably only got an A >.<

    You did the same as me then, just in more detail ermmmm going from a C to an A will be difficult considering the theory only makes up 40%

    interval is all about having short rest

    If I went back I would say they could walk as well but interval does include changes in pace still, for example sprint followed by walk so hope I get some sort of marks there

    Also there was a question about how would you include agility/speed in someone's circuit because I think I screwed this up, I said Illinois agility run and 30 metre sprint :/

    Hey Guys - thought I'd join in as I also took today!

    In my practical I got full marks so I was on a C and I want an A* so I needed 60 marks - did I think I got it... maybe not probably just short if anything.

    The last question I looked like my leg was having a spaz attack underneath the table (anyone else kick an imaginary football?) I talked about the antagonistic pairs and how the skeletal system allows for movement through the ligaments and tendons (although I got them mixed up🙈)

    Did anyone have to try and stop themselves from laughing at the bike question? or just me?

    How did you answer the interval training for the 10,000m runner??

    omg yes me too haha the last question i bugged out! and the bike question omg haha, and for the interval training for 10,000m runner i said something like " you run 1000m then have a 3 minutes break and repeat it". i just chatted **** tbh haha
    i hope i get A* tho becuase in the mocks i got 70/80 and 78/80! what did you write for the tests for power? i swear it took me 30 mins realising that standing broad jump test is another test for power haha!

    For the benefit of you and others asking for how many marks are needed for different grades, no one knows until grade boundaries are published in August.

    I suggest you familiarise yourself with the awarding grades process: how the marks you receive in your exams are converted to a UMS score which determines which grade you receive.

    This depends on the raw mark grade boundaries that are decided for each unit which then convert to a UMS score (which determines the overall grade: 90% UMS is an A*, 80% UMS is an A, 70% UMS is a C etc.) Past Edexcel GCSE grade boundaries can be found here: http://qualifications.pearson.com/en...on-Family=GCSE

    But note that this summer's exam boundaries aren't decided until all exams have been marked. As an example, if we look at the grade boundaries for the theory exam from June 2015, you needed 60/80 for an A* (which converted to 72/80 UMS - i.e. 90%), 56/80 for an A (which converted to 64/80 UMS - i.e. 80% etc.).

    http://qualifications.pearson.com/co...Boundaries.pdf

    The point is that you generally don't need as high amount of marks in the exam as you think to get the grade you want.

    If you have got 50/50 in the practical, this converts to 120 UMS. The overall qualification is out of 200 UMS, so 120/200 = 60% = a C grade before you even walk into the exam.

    To then get an A* having already got 120 UMS, you need another 60/80 UMS to make 180/200 UMS overall. To get 60/80 UMS last year (a grade B in the exam) you only needed 54/80 raw marks in the exam.

    Could you work out what a B or A in marks out of the 80 would be considering I got 45/50 in my (60% practical)

    I said the exact same because what else could we say?
