    i think I put increases but could be wrong :/
    Increases is right. As a decrease in blood pressure is GOOD. Remember, it's tbe force of blood on arteries walls. Alcohol increases the force of the blood as it has to get it out of the system.

    Drinking too much alcohol can raise blood pressure to unhealthy levels.

    As far as I'm aware, there will always be a border around the space that the candidate has to write in. It's that border that's get scanned I believe. So aslong as it was within it, you'll be okay. The examiner has to actually see the image to know what to mark and what not mark. As long as it's clear you will still get the mark.
    Hope that helps!
    yes it does thanks, another question i have is for the circuit six mark i began by giving the definition of a circuit before talking about what it is i then tlaked about how it can be seen as the most effective as it uses all the FITT aspects e.g frequency, intensity, time and type then i started talking about how you can progressive overload with this training before talking about how it has various stations that can be talord to each sport/ person after that i mentioned fartlek, interval and weight training but i mostly talked about how they can do progressive overload with a bit about intensity but i did also say that cross training can tailored aswell then i concluded. i forgot to paragraph for that question however.... how many marks would i get for that roughly?

    That is exactly what I talked about. The fact that everything can be SPECIFICALLY tailored to an individual based on his experience, fitness levels, sport and injury etc.

    Writing the definition of a circuit at the start of your answer is good because it's sets a good flow for the rest of the answer, but most importantly it tells the examiner than you can apply the idea of a circuit to the context, so you know what your on about!

    As long as you have reasons for and against the use of circuit training as the command word was "discuss" then you'll be fine! It's impossible to predict what the mark scheme says but as long as your written communication was good then that's worth a high amount of marks.

    No endo is right because in the revision guide it states when power or extra weight is an advantage and then gives the example of a shot putter
    Power is created by muscularity ... Mesomorphs are muscular

    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.
    that is ridiculous, it genuinely makes me very annoyed how they word the questions

    no, alcohol is a depressant and it lowers blood pressure, low blood pressure is bad because it can result in heart failure

    For my practical mark I got 49/50 meaning I only needed to get 44 marks in today's exam. I didn't revise at all but the exam didn't seem to bad, however I may be wrong as its a possibility I only thought it was easy because I was answering all the questions wrong thinking they were right!!

    What did you write for why the gymnast needed reaction time one?
    I wrote to be able to react quickly enough to land in the correct position before reaching the pole/volt, wby?

    Perhaps it does both?
    The NHS Website states that it raises blood pressure to unhealthy levels. I think we're getting it confused between long term and immediate. It will lover blood pressure immediately because it lowers heart rate I think, but in the long term it will cause an increase in blood pressure.

    For the Olympic weightlifter wanting to carry more weight was the peptide hormones or narcotic analgesics? (Multiple choice question)
    I went with Peptide Hormones...

    had to be narcotics, peptide hormones increase oxygen level but weight training is anaerobic exercise, so it's not needed
    Look at the picture. It says "who might use peptide hormones and it says weight lifting"

    My teacher sat the exam at the same time and said it was Narcotics
    Well, your teacher is wrong. It was peptide hormones. The Edexcel GCSE PE book says:
    'Human growth hormone (HGH) can help increase muscle mass and therefore strength' ...
    'Activities where performers might risk using hormones include:
    HGH
    An activity where an increase in STRENGTH would be helpful, for example: sprinting and weight lifting'
