Yup, we felt the test was rather easy . . . we could have done just as well with our pages from last year (and that's saying something, because my partner and I only made it to regionals, and he was only on the event for 2 weeks). Of course, I really don't think I should be talking, because we obviously got more than one question wrong, but it was still rather easy.

Naps says that you had 2 mins per station. How long did div b have per station really? Yeah I'm too proof needing.

Well, there weren't a lot of questions per station, so I doubt that you would do as bad as you think.

What was the class for Fusulinids and Nummulites? That was the only question my partner and I really felt stumped on.
Granuloreticulosea.
*facepalm* Thank you!
On the b division test, how could we put the class in the tiny box.How??? I know that we missed that one and a tiebreaker was next to it

Just one word or letter, for most of them. The boxes confused my partner and I though, because there were two boxes (grey and white) and you were supposed to write in the white one (which was smaller), except one of them had only grey and no white, and like I said the white box was smaller.

Not quite sure . . . I believe it was there to notify the test-taker that the question was a tiebreaker, but it was awfully big . . .

Does anyone else have a different theory on the gray boxes? I have to get multiple answers for everything.
