    Yeah, you'd get marks for showing the different segments of the vascular tissue. But it did say not to draw in individual cells...
    Yes i know, but seeing as the picture was full of cells I didn't exactly know where to start

    This has appeared in previous mark schemes, gas syringe is fine
    Gas syringe is the correct answer

    I drew the outline, then the multiple layers, I drew the ONE xylem vessel as asked as you have to read the full question it says only draw that. I draw the multiple regions, I think it was worth like 5 marks?

    It never said draw one xylem vessel, only identify the xylem and phloem, xylem are cells so I think you had to not put the xylem in it

    How could you label it if you didn't draw it?

    It wouldn't mean just label an empty section, you probably needed to drawn the outline of the xylem vessel as it said identify on your diagram I think.

    14.5 or 15 for the mean value in the table. Some of my mates rounded up or down and some left it the same.

    Meh, I think it's to a certain number of sig figs, rounded wouldn't be necessary.

    No ur wrong, it said to label the position of the xylem, not draw any xylem vessels
