    literally loved that exam just means that the grade boundaries may be high because we all liked it. Plus the mark scheme will be harsh I think good luck to everyone

    But I thought that was one of the reasons why BMI is a weakness.. because it is invalid as it doesn't account for large muscle mass or a large physique/frame. If you type "what is BMI" in google, most search results will say "BMI is a measure of body fat"
    But as defined in the AQA book " it is a height to weight ratio" leaning towards body composition as oppose to body fat. Although there is a strong correlation between a high BMI and a high level of fat this is not always the case/ accurate so it is a test for body composition

    For the Schmidt schemas section was it recall schema or recognition schema?

    it was recall. what does each component of recall do?
    Recall - Initiates movement
    Composed of initial conditions and response specification

    Initial conditions - "Where am i ?" Whats the environment

    Response specification- "What do i have to do?" Goals and expectations

    it was recall. what does each component of recall do?
    initial conditions which is information about the environment and stuff, and then response identification which is information about the task and what has to be done (I think)

    These are answers i put doesnt mean im correct also couldnt be bothered writing the question you should be able to guess from the answers and the order is pretty messed up
    Section 1 phys
    1) BMI- Body composition but google says body fat :/
    Health complete state of physical social and mental well being
    Fitness ability to meet demand of your environment on a day to day basis
    2) Smoking - leads to lung cancer ect
    lack of exercise causes overweight ect
    3) Cappillary one cell thick = short diffusion pathway
    Large surface area= increase time for diffusion to occure
    small diameter= red blood cells in contact with walls so short Diffusion pathway
    4)Describe diffusion of oxygen and co2 , use results explain diffusion down a conc gradient etc
    redistribution of blood = co2 detected by chemorecptors impulse sent to medulla vasomotor center increase in sympathetic nervous system ect vaso dilation and vaso constriction
    Press up = triceps eccentric and flexion
    Section 2
    Skill continuum- Self paced , discrete , gross
    gross because uses large muscle group

    Question about STSS and tennis
    Stss encodes using 5 senses in tenis use touch to gain feel for racket
    visual see where oponent is
    Selective attention occurs filter out irrelevant focus on relevant improves decision making time

    Explain choice and simple reaction plus which is used in tennis - Choice is when theres more than one stimuli so more than one response
    Simple = 1,1
    Use choice in tennis as theres number of different shots opponent can do so different choices
    What causes a learning platea - Bad coach , injury , lack of motivation, reached maximum ability , boring session
    Improve platea , better coach extrinsic reward , enjoyable session , rest of injured etc
    recall schems - occurs before movement it intiates it
    Knowledge of initial condition - where am i
    response specification what do i have to do

    what did everyone put for the question about moving and growing ?
    i said things like:
    Child Focused
    Recognition of age group
    Better Equipment/rebuilding of facilities
    Problem Solving/discovery style
    decentralised
    Increase Health & Fitness through movement
    Fun Element/ Enjoyable
    Varied activities such as dance and gymnastics

    Agree with everything but you mention chemo-receptors and the impulse sent to the medulla , surely thats control of the heart rate as oppose to redistribution of blood which would be what you've mentioned and others eg skeletal pump , respiratory pump , valves ?

    No the skeletal pump respiratory pump cardiac pump one way valves are all venous return mechanism regardless of what its controlling its always sent to medulla but the centre is different eg heart rate is cardiac centre redistribution of blood is vasomotor center breathing inspiratory centre .... anyway i could be wrong

    Apart from the plane and axis question i thought last years was alright and had unusually low grade boundaries
    61 was an A which was unusually high

    Thought venous return mechanisms was redistribution of blood , id say its definetely vasodilation and vasoconstriction but apart from that im unsure

    yh i put vasodilation and constriction you needed to explain how that occurs so all that impulse ect.
    venous return mechanism is how blood returns to the heart
