Very important question to anyone who looks on this.

So in 2009 the grade boundaries were 59/90 for an A but they'll obviously have changed since then. So does anyone have any idea roughly what the grade boundaries would be this year?

Much obliged

I think this is the only one, PE clearly isn't a big winner on TSR

I'm not looking forward to this exam tomorrow, PE officially has the worst mark scheme I've ever seen because it's so specific. Exam technique in this will be the ultimate death of me

That was actually a really good exam. The 3 10 markers, especially the one for social studies were very friendly.

Seeing as we're the only people who do AS level PE on TSR, what did you think buddy?

You're completely right about the stuff which didn't show up by the way. I tried learning from the mark schemes because it gives you a hint as to how specific they were and I made sure to start from 2009 first.

Only missed out one question and that was the one about origins of the olympic games. There was no way I was ever going to spell Pierre De Courbertin in the exam hall.

Now onto stats in about an hours time

Just did the exam as well, felt like the cardiovascular stuff was my best area but after doing the exam felt like the other two sections were generally easier

Yeah it was a decent exam I thought. I accidentally put bloody flexion for the first one only to realise it was extension the moment they were collecting the papers.
Angular motion 2 marker did come up though, that was simple enough.

The 10 markers were quite good as well, just hope I didn't flop FINGERS CROSSED

I thought all the 10 markers were really good but the grade boundaries suggests we'll need around 65 for an A? Feeling very confident about this one. It's also (cruelly) encouraging that others in my class didn't do well in it, so that could bring the grade boundaries down.

Wasn't it hyper extension? I was quite happy that 'cartilaginous' joint came up cos I literally revised that on the way to school but no one else seems to get it.

The frustrating thing about this exam is the masses of content and how they only ask for about 5 things in each section. That's like 20% of the area used and you either know it or don't.

A2 is far worse though, so the better grade I get in this, the better it sets us up for everything else

Probably would have been like (hyper) extension or extension BOD.
Which part had cartilaginous joints because I didnt mention anything about that :/

It was the first question about the spine. That is a cartilaginous joint right? Haven't dared to look back at my notes but previous mark schemes have said that for the joint being 'spine'. Mark schemes for PE are horribly strict, but I think extension probably would have been acceptable cos it's kinda the same thing, but previous mark schemes for this kinda thing have said "extension = VAGUE"

Checked the mark scheme for a different paper and it said gliding/cartilaginous so we're both alright for that one i guess

Hey. The 10 marker was on origins of sport in USA and there were a couple of questions about the Olympics.

The other 10 markers were about the nervous system and arousal. Other than that, I've done the best I can to erase the exam from my memory
