A grade of at least 70 is necessary for graduation from the University examination for Bio-x (BSC 400). Students who don’t meet the required score usually are allowed to re-test once before enrolling into class. The test consists of multiple choice and true/false questions. Students must also answer five essay questions, all of which are based on biology topics. Students can only take the exam during their Sophomore Year, after they have enrolled in a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology program. Students who take the examination in High School will likely have to wait until after they complete their High School studies.
Students who take the examination in High School are required to take a prerequisite course for admission into the University examination for Bio-x. They must pass this course with a C average or higher in order to be eligible to take the test. The test will cover all the biology coursework taken in High School and will include both lab and lecture portions. Students are expected to know how to read a lab notebook and how to conduct laboratory experiments and write lab reports, as well as to be able to identify common biological species.
Students should also know the four types of Biology test that are required of BSC 400 students. There is a multiple-choice section, a question essay, a short essay, and an integrated laboratory experiment. These tests are typically timed and contain multiple questions that must be answered within a given time frame. Students must also answer laboratory and/or lab reports that examine their understanding of the information learned from previous questions and essay questions.
Students are expected to understand that an examination of general biology is not easy. There will always be times when a student needs help in answering a question or finding the appropriate answer to a problem. Even those students who understand the topic of a question or answer correctly can sometimes make an incorrect answer or make a mistake, resulting in an incorrect answer.
Some courses in a BSC program require a multiple-choice section on the test, others require a multiple-choice portion of the exam, and still others require a true/false question portion of the exam. Many of the Biology courses involve laboratory exercises, as well, so students need to learn how to design and conduct experiments in order to pass the examination.
Study guides and practice tests can help students prepare for these exams. The more prepared a student is, the better his or her chance will be of passing the test, as well as the ability to get the most out of a class.
General biology is a very interesting subject to study, and students who take the General Biology Exam will have an opportunity to become better scientists and problem solvers through the experience of taking a course. If you find yourself in the position of wondering what to write on your exam, there are many samples and sample questions to follow on the BSC site. In addition, the Biology site has a number of books, notes, videos, and other materials that will help you learn about general biology. By taking the time to learn what’s covered on a BSC course, you will be prepared for the real test.
