Is it fine to give your answer in bullet points or do I have to write the answers in a paragraph? I have always given my answers in bullet points in my Biology mocks but my teacher has never said anything about it. :confused:

For example:

"Some white blood cells are phagocytic. Describe how these phagocytic white blood cells destroy bacteria. " (3 marks)

My answer:
- Phagocytes are attracted to the bacteria due to chemoattractants
-Phagocytes engulf the bacteria and enclose it an vacuole called phagosome.
-Lyosomes fuses with vacuole and release lytic enzymes so the bacteria is hydrolysed


Thank you!!

Yeah, bullet points are usually good for the sciences but in the QWC questions (usually indicated by a *), use paragraphs - but I think you know this!
