Did anyone write the NBC today(April 28th)? Do you think it's difficult or easy? I have a good feeling about this even though I skipped some homeostasis questions since I'm still taking Bio right now! Hmmm I'd say there're some interesting questions :clown: 

If you wrote this contest, please post your comments here XD

"The top 250 competitors are recognized as National Biology Scholars."
Also if you're the top score of your school, you'll receive a certificate. 

I think I registered for it more than a month ago...it was seven dollars and my Bio teacher mentioned it during class. It was fun participating in this competition!I feel like I'm not just a boring student at school when I write those contests( well, other than Waterloo's Math contests). They simply filled my heart with lots of passions =)

Oh yeah man, that contest was brutal T__T. It required so much critical thinking and only about 25% of stuff I learned in bio 12 was actually put to use.

UofT always brings interesting exams. I have to be very honest, it wasn't easy. The questions that were straight forward were very simple, and the questions that were more difficult involved a lot more thinking. Best of luck to you :)

I found it hard, although I did appreciate the 3 or 4 easy chem questions that were thrown in.
Anything to do with plants I skipped...
