I think mineral deficiency or tensile strength of plant fibres might come.
But its better to revise all of them just in case

Yes I'm prepared I think. Can't believe it's tomorrow!
No idea about the experiments, better to read through all than take a wild guess.

yeah it's a bit difficult to guess i mean, i went through all past papers and so far all the practicals have been shown up in the papers soo we cant actually rely on guessing!!

I think its mineral deficiency... but its very much better to revise all the practicals... good luck tomorrow guys..

  1. Could someone help me with this question from the June 2014 IAL Biology (WBI03) paper.

How did they get 110 days for B??? I don't get it?


  1. and for observing mitosis: in paper 6BI07 june 2013

Where's the 6th mitotic cell in the pic? and are the cells with 2 black dots considered as telophase. (circled in green) If so, why are they not counted as a mitotic cell, I have seen like 4 of them and they weren't considered in the markscheme?

Question 1 => for graph B, it returns to 1000 on day 160 and the varroacide was applied on day 50.
160-50 = 110 days


Question 2 => answer key accept 4,5 and 6.. so you should not confuse too much.. 5 answer would be brilliant for this question..

Okay if I chose 5, so 5/84 x 100 = 5.92, but then why would I divide that by 6?:confused:

they didnt divide it by 6, they rounded up the answer i.e 5.95 was rounded up to 6%

I'm slightly confused about the practical that relates to measuring the zone of inhibition under the presence of different extracts (garlic and mint). How do you spread the bacteria on the agar? Are there any specific techniques? And what about preparing that agar solution and pouring it into the dishes??

we got this as a handout from our bio teacher, hope it helps:
part 1(preparing agar medium)
1.liquefy the nutrient agar by placing the bottle in a water bath at 100c
2.once the agar has liquefied, remove the bottle and loosen the cap to allow air to escape.
3.all the agar to cool to about 45c
4.using a syringe, withdraw 1cm of bacterial broth and place it into a sterile petri dish using aseptic techniques
5.pour the molten agar into the petri dish so that it is half-filled
6.very gently push the petri dish back and forth to uniformly mix the bacteria and the agar
7.allow the agar to set by leaving it aside for about 20 minutes

Part 2
1.obtain plant extract by crushing 3g of plant material with 10cm3 of industrial denatured alcohol and shake it from time to time for 10 minutes
2. use a asyringe and withdraw 0.1cm3 of the extract onto a sterile disc cut out from a filter paper
3. let the paper discs dry for 10 minutes on an open sterile petri dish
4. repeat steps 1-3 for other plants, making separate test discs for each exctract
5. prepare once disc to act as control
6. using sterile forceps, place the test discs together with the control disc onto the medium in the petri dish
7. ensure that you can distinguish between the different discs by making the underside of the petri dish
8. close the etri dish and tape it to secure the lid with adhesive tape at 4 corners
9. incubate the dish for 24 hours at 30c
