Biol 201 Exam Prep

   Date   Biology 201 Exam Prep
Information about the test
  1.  If you fail the test it does not count against you in any way. That includes funding from Fast Forward. If you do not pass the exam, I will not turn your score over to CWI. There is no penalty for not passing the exam!
  2.  I will administer the CWI Biol 201 test at the high school in January 19th. I would like to arrange it when most students are able to show up. 
  3. I would recommend studying for it. It is a difficult and challenging exam. 
  4. If you feel you would rather take Biol 201 than attempt the exam there is a possibility that you could sign-up for Biol 201 for the Fall Semester.  If there are enough students signed-up for the class, we would be able to offer it at NHS in Fall 2017. Would this allow you credit for Biol 202 if you are currently in Invertebrate/Vertebrate?....No, you would have to take Biol 202 after you pass Biol 201.
  5. If you have further questions, please see me in room 207.
