Instructions for marking the advanced written paper

1. Always use red ink.

2. Put a tick next to each correct answer. Each correct tick is worth one point. Half a
point is not to be given. If a question which is worth two points is answered correctly,
put two ticks.
3. If there is a correct answer to a question which is not included in the marking scheme
you can still accept it. The same principle applies to synonyms. (e. g. :platelets—
4. The equally acceptable, alternative answers are separated with a backslash (/) in the
marking scheme.
5. At the end of each task add up the points in the grey boxes.
6. Mark each correct answer with a tick on the margin in the optional essay. In the
marking scheme only the most important terms and expressions are included in the
correct logical order. You can also accept the answers if they are logically built up
even if this logic is different from the one given in the marking scheme, unless it is
otherwise stated in the given task. In the end, please add up the points of the correct
answers and write them into the appropriate boxes of the summary chart.
7. In the essay, points can only be given for answers responding to the guiding questions.
8. If the candidate started answering both optional tasks (A and B) act according to the
instructions given under the heading of ‘Important Information’.
9. If the candidate is expected to formulate an answer in full sentences (e.g. reasoning
and explanations) only grammatically correct sentences can be accepted. Do not
subtract points for spelling mistakes but do not accept ambiguous sentences

Good luck for your work.

Each correct answer is 1 point.

1. (Secondary) succession
2. The r strategists are present in higher proportions at the beginning, while the K strategists
become dominant at the end.
3. These species are not good at withstanding strong competition (e.g. shading, roots of other
species taking up and competing for nutrients in the soil.)
4. They shade or in other ways suppress other light-preferring species dominant in earlier
stages of succession.

touch with the mother plant (one genet, many, connected ramet)

were dominant. They also maintain their germination ability for a long time. Uniform/
homogenous appearance is shown.
During the course of the process plant species with heavier and less readily dispersible seeds
gained dominance (group-like appearance)

Life Before Birth 12 points

• Fertilisation tends to take place in the oviduct.

• During the first day/hours following ovulation / on the 14-15-16th day of the cycle.
2 points
• The embryo is nourished through the placenta
• and the umbilical cord by the mother.
• In case of an Rh- mother with an Rh+ foetus, the foetal blood can leak into the
mother’s blood stream during delivery and the cell surface antigens of the red blood
cells can activate the mother’s immune system.
• This can result in potential problems if the next baby is Rh+ because the antibodies
produced against the Rh + antigens can cross the placenta (type IgG) 4 points

• Alcohol, drugs and some viruses (e.g. HIV) can pass through the placenta (two good
examples) 1 point

• The embryonic membrane(s) has/have an important role to play in developing the

placenta / secreting the amniotic fluid / protects and surrounds/encloses/separates the
• The amniotic fluid provides protection against mechanical damage and temperature
fluctuation / it is in the amniotic fluid that the embryo is moving about, floating and
sensing its surrounding. Or other correct functions mentioned. 2 points

• Unlike in the newborn baby, there is no pulmonary circulation and the lungs do not
work in the fetus / the fetus obtains its nutrients through the umbilical cord, whereas
the baby from its alimentary canal (one example)

the opening is closed (or other correct differences mentioned) 2 points

• The heartbeat sound of the mother and other auditory stimuli the foetus was exposed
to in the uterus have a calming effect on the newborn baby, too. (or other good

nuclei). 2 points

• The fertilised egg cell develops into the embryo

• The fertilised diploid cell gives rise to endosperm/food store of the seed
