How are people feeling about the paper 2 exam next week? I recon there may be one more synoptic question on either an 8 or 15 mark question. Projectiles hasn't come up yet also thinking personality for section B, drugs for section C.

yeah I`m feeling OK my predictions are personality, social cohesion and zajonc, projectile or angular motion, obviously one lever question, and for section C probably drugs but i`m not sure if it will be about the + and - of banning or about the actual drugs themselves and the benefits to performers. I agree you could be right about the synoptic 8 marker or 15 marker but think it could be within the sections of this paper. for example a part of Section B like achievement motivation in the Section C 15 marker

AO1~ Define it and name the theories
AO2 ~ explain each theory,state the problems with the drive theory and I guess state which theory applies best to the question.
AO3 ~ analyse the differencein arousal levels for optimum performance between novice expert, complex simple, introvert extrovert, gross fine and explain in terms of the question.

Maybe Zone of optimal functioning will be on it.But for example if the question was analyse and evaluate how arousal affects cognitive learners the above would be my AO3

Found it good in parts and quite difficult in others. Found psych the easier section, quite nice and simple throughout and section A the hardest, we hadn’t been taught how to train during injury rehab properly so didn’t know that one, found the 15 marker hard but other than that, it wasn’t too bad

Yeh psychology was good. I also found the strength training 8 marker hard as it's a very small topic to have AO2 and AO3 written about it

Thought section A and C were pretty good, especially the 15 markers, but really didn't like the psychology 15 marker on golf and rugby. The strength 8 marker through me a bit as well, as that section is so small in the textbook. I ended up just saying how machine weights are better in early stages pf rehab and free weights better later on.
