I reckon overall, it was a shit exam, mutliple choice wasnt too bad, however, question 5 confused me : which of the sets of risk factors is common in both cvd and breast cancer and question 20: the graphs show the learning curves of a performer practicing two new skills. which best reflected the skills represented by x and y.
I did question 21, health priorities.
question a) (account for the differences in the health status of men and women in australia.) I found this question really easy, and reckon i got a band 6 answer.
b) the comparison between the two approaches was ok..could have done better.
Question 22-factors affecting performance
a) describe the FITT principle..etc. - yeah, that question wasnt too bad, prob a band 4 answer there
b) evaluation of the psychological strategies - I did it in table form, and reckon i got band 5
The options section was shit, I did sports med and sport and physical activity in aus. society
question a on sports med ( outline the barriers to the use of protective equipment in sport) was just stupid...i expected something like classifying or managing injuries, or mineral deficiencies or something.
b) (critically analyse the ethical issues raised by the increased use of sports medicine for injury management)...yeah, that question fucked me up, i had no idea at all.
question 24 a) (outline how australia has used sport for political purposes), i think that was ok, i spoke about tourism, trade and sponsorship. especially as a result of the olympics
b)(critically analyse how the mass media contribute to peoples understanding, values and beliefs about sport), think i went ok, spoke mainly about selection of choices on what is broadcast eg. the low porfile of womens sport, plus the media representation of sportsmen..etc. etc.
so overall, the multiple choice i thought were ok, part b was ok, options were kind of shit.
