    Hi did anyone think the PE exam was an odd one? There was nothing on bones, muscles or any components of fitness!

    It was ok, I spent ages revising the physiology side of the course and there was nothing on there like you mentioned , which is a bit disappointing . I also found thinking of 5 healthy eating promotions hard.

    Yeah same, it was a bit of a let down after so much work, for those five things on eating I found a hard one to judge, the question was written weirdly!

    It's very unfair for students that have sat this exam today as the last year paper was so much easier. Last year there was questions on ectomorths, components of fitness or functions of blood. I do not get how the level of difficulty can change so much.
    And why on earth they put that Youth Sport Trust programmes on, who is going to be remembering that?
    Same with them 5 ways of healthy eating or the culture.
    I needed 35 marks for a C, no way im getting that.

    I thought the exam today was extremely odd and there were quite a few questions that I would have never revised for - although the Youth Sports trust we were taught about along with the Dame Kelly Holmes trust, the day before the exam which was extremely lucky. I was wondering though is this the first time no definitions have come up on the exam (Excluding the role models question on the part B scenario) because we were always told the would be at least one definition and an example to match the definition??

    Also where were the questions actually relating to sport and pe in general???!

    For healthy eating I said they could offer more fruit, have it on lower prices or free, teach them about the importance of it, get rid of unhealthy foods and put posters up about it.

    I said a role model is someone who others are inspired by and respect, they want to be like them and they behave well

    Yeah I said explosive, static and dynamic and the definition of each. I then said what events these would be explosive- vault would gain more height and better score. Static - rings would help him stay in a stable condition more easily such as the pike and dynamic- pommel horse which would allow him to keep going over long periods of time..I then said how he could I.prove these through weight training....

    Well based on last years practical grade boundaries, you have a low - middle B, you can't get an a* even with 100% in the test. To get an A, you would have needed 67/80 (A* boundary) to justtt abouttt get an A. I'm just hoping that they lower the practical grade boundaries coz I want an A* but wouldn't have been able to get one last year with the low A I have in practical.

    You would probably need 64/80 marks (using last year boundaries though) if you're doing the full course and double award I think.
