This is for all the people taking Biology for the May 2011 Exams
The format of the exam has changed..so u might wanna ask ur teachers to practice this type of format with you, just to be on the safe side of not screwing up. I found this on the website click4biology, but it is originally from the IB teachers website. I am not a teacher, but the person who owns click4biology is a teacher and he put it up So here is what the IB had to say..
HL and SL Paper 2 2011
This year Paper 2 will be electronically marked. This means that the format of the answer box will be a little bit different. Here's a summary of the changes from the IBIS website:
A box around the space where candidates must write their answers. This is so that the scanner can locate candidates’ responses.
Orientation marks in the four corners of every page. These help the scanner to align the page image correctly.
A shaded spine section. These give guidance as to where the completed script will be guillotined prior to scanning, and also deter candidates from writing in this area.
A dashed grid where candidates are required to draw, or add to a graph. This will enable the scanner to easily pick up lines drawn by the candidate on grid lines or axes.
If candidates are unable to complete their answer in the box given, they should continue their answer on supplementary examination stationery and indicate that they have done this within the box.
Ask your teacher to go through the example which has been provided by the board.
