Describe the changes in the circulatory system that occur during exercise.
This is an applied physiology question. Better answers categorised the changes in some manner and included a measure of the degree of change as applicable (e.g., what increases, what decreases and what may stay the same). The question was to describe the changes so that the detail behind the mechanisms enabling these changes to occur was expected (e.g., neurohumoral, local factors). Marks were also awarded for any regional variation that occurs.
