    Yea didn't do too much for 1d but what I did do was try to link free time and improved transport with rational recreation characteristics somehow

    I was just glad that the 20m for comparative wasn't on a specific sport! But still didn't find it easy & wasn't too happy about the 20m for psych either....
    The 20m for ex&phys - there was so many possible things to talk about no? I found I spent so long on the factors :L
    Also I think I messed up the interval training question as I wasn't sure if it was asking for general benefits/adaptations or benefits/adaptations of interval training specifically to do with aerobic capacity?

    What did other people think?

    Good paper but I don't think I did enough for an A as i needed 85% on the exam. I wrote so much and really enjoyed the 20m for psychology. i tried so hard to learn all that confidence stuff and mypeexam helped out loads too.

    I spent barely any time on factors of explosive strength, literally a paragraph and then went straight into the programme. it was good, i thought. I used plyometrics with vertical jump as a test method and i think i included enough detail for 15 at least for that

    1 c and d were a bit too specific for my liking

    Wrote almost a page alone for 1c. Didn't like how it absorbed so much of my time and i desperately wanted to talk about other things too for 1d, like health and such but i was limited due to free time and transport. at least we had transport though as that's easy to develop and such

    Half day Saturday, shorter working week, broken time payments

    Transport for fixtures and leagues, private school and outside, also more spectatorship and international sports which are still seen today.

    Some people still don't have free time for sport today and some people do not have transport in rural areas to leisure centres
