    Guys what do you think of this exam overall? and what did you put for the question about mothers with young children?

    PS The board is EDEXCEL and I got 39/40 in practical and 20/20 in AoP. How much do you reckon is good enough for an A*?

    I thought the exam went pretty well, I got the same as you in practical. Was that the one where they the old guys help out at the club?

    Am I the only person to think that some of the questions were too vague, for example 'explain what is meant by exercise?'

    There's actually a complete definition of that they wanted you to recite I think. That exam was bs in my opinion it was majority short course content however, I did like the 6 markers they gave there was quite a lot to write about.

    The 6 markers were good especially the first one. However, some questions were stupid like the one which asked us to give 2 reasons why the athlete breathes faster and deeper. I put to deliver oxygen to muscles and take away CO2 from the blood (In both i spoke about diffusion in the alveoli) Those were the only reasons I thought of! DO you think that they're right? It's going to be an epic fail if I don't get an A* :mad:

    I think that's wrong because it says they start to breathe deeper and faster at the beginning of exercise NOT after exercise. Lactic acid is broken down after exercise is finished! Sorry about spoiling it for you :/

    It all depends on the grade boundaries... I sprained my ankle the day before moderation so I went from a 10 (in rounders) to an 8.

    I took the exam last year (IN YEAR 10) and got a B (62 UMS) which I wish I had retaken... but if the grade boundaries are low enough I could still get an A*, so it all depends on the grade boundaries considering the exam is only worth 40% of the final grade.

    It must feel really bad to sprain your ankle one day before moderation! I actually sprained it 4 days before moderation while playing basketball, I used RICE, NSAIDs and massage to improve it before moderation day, it was perfect on the day. My sports were athletics, basketball, fitness (cooper's run) and rock climbing got 10s in all except for basketball!

    Even though it's only 40% of the final grade i still think that you need to get 72 UMS for A* which is hard!

    Looking at mark schemes there are specific words/phrases which when you write could take marks off, but as you said it's only 1 or 2 marks :P

    yeah it was horrible but what can I do...

    but i think im on an A because I got 10's in swimming and fitness and a 9 in athletics and full marks in the PEP and AoP so I think I'll come out with an A... All depending on the grade boundaries...
