    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?
    If you got 50/50 which is 120 UMS that's a C and you need 180 UMS for an A* overall so 60 marks☺️

    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
    I've noticed now, Edexcel PE exams genuinely have some very badly worded questions - when I read past mark schemes for certain questions it gives such a straightforward response and yet the question itself was so vague.
    As for the reaction time though, the stimulus was the beam - the gymnast had to 'react' to the beam and adjust her footing quickly to land on it properly.

    No they would need 60 UMS points not marks. It depends on the grade boundaries this year , but if it was 2014s paper they would only need like an A so around 50marks I think or less

    What did people put for the question on why the gymnast needs reaction time?

    I wrote about how the Gymnast should have a good reaction time to be able to return her feet to the beam quickly after performing the position so she remains on the beam - wbu?

    I put that she needs to react to the beam and to make sure she lands correctly!

    Everyone's saying about losing their balance on the beam, but I put about on a dismount how she has to land quickly or something. I was like 'why the hell does a gymnast need reaction time!?'
    I think I did pretty badly, probably got like 40 all I want is an A
