I'm finding that the resource that i purchased (mypeexam.org) has been really useful and i have some excellent notes from it. Now im just working through the workbook and will get to past papers soon.

I'm worried about the wording of questions because i know they will try to catch us out but I guess we have to go through it.

Anyone else got useful revision tips?

Good luck.

I find that learning mnemonics and acronyms are very helpful for the exam

Hi, whats your practical mark? this is 60% of the GCSE. Other than that make sure you learn your 6 mark question structure, as this is where most people loose their marks (national average is 2/6).
Also revise methods of training, and components of fitness (HRC and SFC) as they always come up. Check the Edexcel website for past papers and mark them

I heard that if you get less than 45 in the practical, there is no chance of an A* overall.
