    Not sure if there's one of these already but I thought I'd make one anyway.
    Who's ready for the PE exam? What do you think will come up about Lucy and her athletics, particularly for the 8 mark questions?

    Also any tips for people trying to learn all the content in one night? (i.e. me)

    I think something about John being an effective coach. Since Lucy is having financial problems I recon some form of sponsership will be included. As well as external effects such as environment, weather etc.

    It's probably the best way to do it. Overthinking PE questions just makes me get it wrong...

    Last year they were criticised for not including enough on the body, so I would revise that

    I literally am revising right now and have no clue as to what to expect in the exam. What's the mark required for a B or C? The AQA grade boundaries have more than one unit and it's confusing guessing which one is the theory exam.

    Short course theory - unit 1
    Full course and double award theory - unit 3
    Double award only theory - unit 5

    Last year's boundaries (/80):
    A* - 67
    A - 60
    B - 53
    C - 47

    Ah thank you for these! My teacher thinks that it's likely to be individual differences for one of them as there's quite a lot relating to that.
    They've really packed the prelim with loads of different topics this year so who knows what could come up?

    My teacher believes that the olympics will come up as Rio Olympics is very soon so they could base questions about organisations on this. If theres anything about name organisations within sport we were told to chose sports and put england before or after as there is many like canoe england, england rugby, england netball and england squash theres loads and if your struggling its easy to pick up marks.
