Out of curiosity I paid a small fee earlier in the year to get feedback on the BBKA Module 6: Honeybee Behaviour exam I sat in March. This week the feedback has arrived; not once but twice! Yep, the BBKA posted me the same document in two different envelopes which arrived within a few days of each other. Maybe they were just making extra sure I got it 🙂
For anyone interested, here’s a scan of the feedback: Module 6 feedback. It might be useful to someone taking a Module exam for the first time. The biggest thing I got out of it was that I should have used bullet points for section B to save time rather than writing my answer out essay style. The exam time goes quickly, I found my hand aching after I finished because I was trying to write so fast to fit it all in. See my previous Passed post for a pdf of the exam paper itself.
Was amused to see the chemical equations for sucrose, glucose and fructose put down as a possible answer I could have given. That so wasn’t going to happen. Drew looked at the feedback and said “Wow, they really take these exams seriously, don’t they?”
To celebrate Monday being over, here’s an end-of-post bumble bee spotted in San Diego, where the bees are bigger and the flowers brighter.
