I predict high 60's or low 70's

I didn't really like the test. My nose was running heaps of thick product and I used up the whole box of tissues the examiners gave me. I got distracted by it, but it is too much of a small thing to apply for one of those sick consideration things.

The way Micky says he was lucky I thought I was unlucky. I studied everything but things that I practised or learnt about less were mainly in it. Like the inflammation thing in Sports Medicine. Easy 3 marks but I scanned over it too fast in my revision.

I kind of laughed how I asked in the PDHPE thread yesterdasy if they specifically ask about a priority area and I trusted the advice I was given...NEVER AGAIN. Well actually never again because I am done now, yew.
I did say have a fair idea of the ALL of them. Besides, I only studied about diabetes, not injuries. I managed to talk about road accidents and suicides for injuries. Also, if you knew how priority areas were identified (social justice principles, prevalence of the condition, priority population groups, cost to community and individual and potential for change) then you shouldn't have had a big problem with it. It didn't need to you talk about the nature or trends or anything like. The space was pretty limited too so you really couldnt have talked about the nature..

I put in that you need to use the principles of specificity and progressive overload as well as training thresholds.

Quantity doesn't mean much, you may even have large writing...
In the end i used extra booklets too, writing is quite large and just cause i had time to do so, MC was easy based on the answers online should get 20 possibly 19. Options were a bit harder (Sports Medicine and Improving Performance) - Nevertheless very doable and I'm happy with the way things panned out. Predicting mid 90's probably about 94 - possibly more depending upon the difficulty of the markers.

I gave them everything they asked for, in depth syllabus knowledge, tried to use as many examples as possible! See how things go!
Good luck to anybody with anymore exams and your overall results - hope everyone gets where they wish to be.

20 out of 20 for MC by cross checking with other ppls answers on boredof and my teacher, so thats a good start!
I dunno how well i'll go overall, i thought it was pretty good tho, probs wrote too much for the extended options questions; like a booklet each. I wish the the core questions used booklets as well cos i couldnt be stuffed asking for a booklet to continue the answer on.
hoping for at least 85 raw with and with wishful thinking maybe a 93

yeh i strugdled with that a bit to. think ill only be looking at 7-8 outa 12 for that which is very disappointing.

Does anybody know what the scaling/alignment of raw marks is like for PDH?

what would:

70% raw = aligned?

80% raw = aligned?

Here's a question, on that last one (I think) in the core booklet, did you guys write about motivation dash points and managing anxiety dash points?
