I got asked this:

Name of blood vessel to the hearts

I just said coronary blood vessels.

Would that be accepted? (1 marker btw)

Possibly not as they expect you to name a particular coronary blood vessel (e.g. aorta)

i'd think not as heart vessels isn’t a legit term.

also BLOOD vessels refer to the capillaries/arteries/arterioles/veins/venules so vessels in itself could imply any of these.

i doubt it since vessels can be arteries, vein or capillaries, its a component that carries blood eseentialy so no im sorry. remember it like this
Away - Arteries (A)
To - Vein
Join - Capillaries
GCSES?

veins and arteries are different- veins take blood to the heart whereas arteries take blood away from the heart.

I think that you will get the point, but I would refrain from naming them like that in the future as the blood vessel category considers many things. Also, there are coronary arteries and veins so maybe that would have been a better answer.

The aorta is NOT a coronary blood vessel; the left and right coronary arteries are the first branches of the aorta proximal [before] to the arch of the aorta.

Having said that, you are correct that the examiners might want you to name a particular vessel, but only to the extent of coronary ARTERY. No A level syllabus would expect you to know individual branches of the coronary arteries e.g. Left Anterior Descending [LAD] branch of the left coronary artery OR diagonal branch of the right coronary artery (RCA)
