In this event teams of 3 to 6 will be expected to develop careful dissection
techniques and become familiar with the name and location of the major structures
of the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, and urogenital systems as described
in the dissection guide to be provided. Students will be allowed to open up the
thoracic and abdominal cavities, identify structures (approximately 15) and complete
a dissection questionnaire regarding structure, function and physiology of organs

male and female specimens will be provided on the day of competition. These are

their own dissecting kit and gloves, and a pen or pencil for answering the question
sheets.. Each kit may include 1 scalpel, 1 spare scalpel blade, 1 probe, 1 pair
of tweezers, 1 pair of dissecting scissors, and 1 box of T-pins.|

year, a particular system will be designed for special study, and this will be
announced on the web page.
(i) Each dissection will be marked out of 100%.
Structures must be clearly displayed.
(ii) Written answers to questions
will be marked out of 100%.
(iii) The final mark will be calculated using
the following weighting: 65% dissection (i above) and 30% questions (ii above),
plus 5% if you bring your own dissection kit and gloves,
to give a total mark out of 100%.
