Goodness gracious, that nationals test. I was somewhat disappointed with our placing. And really surprised there was no muscle ID and a question asking us to label parts of the pituitary... I've never seen a question ask about parts of a gland before.

Does anybody know the possible systems for next year?
I know that respiratory will be one of them. :)

It's up on here.

But it's excretory, respiratory, and digestive. Tentatively.

I hate to double post, but did anyone take the nationals test? What did you guys think of it? I'm really curious; I was hoping to get top 20. :(

Excretory? Really? That's kind of... strange...

hm, can anybody find an in-depth diagram of the pituitary gland that was like the one presented on the nats test? I can't seem to find a good diagram.

These were the closest two I could find with a quick Google search:

A lot of textbooks don't have it; I know it was a tiebreaker question, but I have never seen a question asking parts of the gland beyond cortex vs. medulla. It was slightly unnerving.

does anybody know any good resources for the systems that are going to be focused on in 2012? :D

So next year Div B will have respiratory and digestive (tentatively)? They already had respiratory this year. And anyway, how do you know?

Anyway, I think that the Soinc.org website will be the best resource when they release the events and other things on the website.
