Biology November 2010 question

Recommended Posts

Hello, I was doing a past paper in biology paper 3 Option H when i found this question in the file i attached. The syllabus doesn't really require us to study electron micrographs of liver tissues. So i'm worried if these type of questions will come in the november 2013 session. If so, what to do?

I wouldnt be too worried about this type of question. I am guessing this question addresses the assesment statement about how liver tissue can be damaged due to prolonged exposure to alcohol. It's easy to identify the healthy tissue: II and III look fatty to me. III maybe even scarred. Good luck!

Nooo.. It's basically just label the parts of the liver tissue. I is hepatocytes. II is hepatic vein and III is sinusoids. It's HL options btw. hahha. Problem is how is anyone supposed to figure that out when it's not in the syllabus

Ohh... WELL that doesnt make any sense at all! I dont think that the syllabus has changed from 2010 to now, so you should probably have those parts of the liver in mind... I know it's higher level, I took a look at an online guide with the Assessment Statements and summaries hahaha. Maybe someone reported that mistake to the IB and it has been changed... let's just hope for the best.
