Biology, Ordinary and Higher Grades, Syllabuses and Specimen Question Papers.
Scottish Certificate of Education Examination Board, Edinburgh.
Included is the prescribed syllabus in biology for the Scottish Certificate of Education. In two separate sections, the syllabus topics and specimen questions for final examinations are explained. This syllabus is intended to present biology as knowledge about living organisms without making the conventional division between plants and animals. Accordingly, the list of broad fields of study include "General Variety of Living Organisms,""The Cell,""Energy and Life,""Processes of Life,""Genetics and Evolution," and "Inter-Relationship of Organisms with Each Other and with Their Environment." Each of these is divided into small units with a description of concepts included in them. Certain sections of the topical outlines are underlined, thereby indicating special emphasis for Higher Grade students. The section on specimen test questions has some tests for Ordinary Grade, Higher Grade Paper I and Paper II. The main difference among these examinations is a gradual increase of types of questions from recall of information to engaging deductive reasoning. Both objective and essay type questions are included. (PS)
