Final Exam for 2013

The final exam for Grades 8-11 was written today, and that was the Life Sciences Practical exam for Grade 10.

Practical Assessment Tasks (fondly known as PATS) in Life Sciences require learners in Grade 10 to perform a test, using reagents to identify protein. They also had to make observations about samples from the fynbos biome,  identify bones and use data about transpiration rates in order to construct a graph. It was a nerve wracking experience involving a stop watch and a teacher dedicated to you and you alone as you performed your test for protein!
