Guys... did you get this:
For the question about the experiment thing: "Match THREE pieces of apparatus used in this experiment with THREE identified parts of the eye."
I did lens:
I, K and J = lens of the eye
Solution = vitreous humor
Fine paper = retina
I am being told that I am wrong...

You're right, but I added a bit more:
I, K, J - -the lens at different stages/levels of accommodation
solution - aqueous and vitreous humour

Yay!!
But for the compare question that followed, I said forthe differences that the cornea and the aqueous humor weren't present so that kinda made the experiment a little different...

I wasn't too sure about the eyes and purpose, so i put three animals.

The snake and it's need for infra-red to detect heat from prey
the bee and compound eye with ommotodia because it needs to see things really fast as it flies. As well as ultraviolet because of the flowers
planatarian (i spelt it wrong :( ) with the occeli because it only needs to detect light for direction


will i get the marks?

the stupid diagram of the ear was stupid :)
how was that even an ear? it was missing all the dumb parts and i lost one mark so far :(
loved the 8 marker for communication and for everything else it was pretty good.

for that one i wrote about humans and insects so i should be alright

But do humans qualify as animals?

I also included the fly and the worm and both the named structures. I think I mispelt ocelli walls, I was trrying to remember the name in the exam :I. I didn't mention the snake, but Im pretty sure the question asked for two animals specifically. Don't take my word on this, but if that is the case, then you might get marked down.

Huge waste of time, especially since there was another question about animals also
Nothing about nuerones, photoreceptors, action potential, the BRAIN
