    Not exactly true. If one has a high A* in their PEP and practical, you'll find that one actually requires around 64 out of 80 marks for an A* overall c:
    i got 40/40 for my practicle and 20/20 coursework ( including full marks on my analysis of performance) and then got 57 in my mock and got an overall A*, so yeah i guess if you didnt get full coursework marks then you would require a few more marks on the paper.

    The 20/20 is the Analysis of Performance, they halve it (round it up if it's a decimal) and they add it onto your practical score to give you a score out of 50 overall. I also got 38 out of 40 in my 4 sports. I got 78/80 on both my mock as well as the real thing, and my teacher clearly showed me that I only needed 64 on the real thing in order to get an A*, but OK.

    PEP is part of your AOP, because for the last section of the AOP asks you about your PEP. And I did the course last year, I got an A* on it. I'm in Year 12. c:

    Fair enough, tbh. IMO the marks you get for the PEP really aren't worth the effort you expend in doing it, mine was about 7500 words long. I mean yes, if you're aiming for an A*, a good PEP is vital, but like if you're just hoping to pass the course (and you're not doing fitness as one of your 4 sports), I think you could probably do the bare minimum for it.

    Haha I can't even remember how long it took, I mean I completed it pretty quickly but the others in our class were much slower so I had to wait for them. I did weight training (these mad gainz tho) for fitness, competitive swimming, rounders (which I dropped the two marks in because even though I played like a solid 10 on the day, the moderator was lazy so he didn't bother changing it - the week before, we were practising rounders in lesson and I remember missing like almost half of the balls I was bowled and when I did make contact I barely got it to go far, so my teacher gave me an 8. Then, on the day, I turn into Babe Ruth and I place shots, do backhands, smack it far, etc, and I still only got an 8 xD) and haha I did personal survival too!

    I sorta got coerced into doing personal survival by my teacher because apparently, since I'm a swimmer, it's much easier. I thought it'd be fun but eh, it was alright I guess. Haha yeah me too. Initially, they thought that the HELP position was horizontal/diagonally instead of vertical so I was looking like an idiot clutching a football and lying sorta diagonally in the water. They later realised it was vertical, at which point it became very easy.
