IB Biology HL May 2017

This petition kindly urges the consideration of students who experienced the IB Biology HL May 2017 examinations.
The IB Biology HL exam was difficult for students and did not focus on the main core in comparison to past papers, especially paper 1. A general comment from most was the time limit as the data-based questions required critical thinking in paper 2, especially the northern blotting question. Students have spent the course memorizing, understanding and applying various skills, most of which was not expressed in the exam due to its difficulty and time constraint. This was very disappointing for a majority of students and demotivating as some had biology as their first exam. All three papers consisted of a greater difficulty index than past exams and both students as well as biology teachers believe grade boundaries should be revised for this year's examination, especially that of paper 1.
