HL Biology Drawings (SKILLS) - practice 2016

These are a set of drawings needed for the 2016 syllabus for HIGHER level, although Standard level are also welcome to use it. All the diagrams are there (and more). The images used come from Google and Bioninja. There's a space next to each image/diagram so that you can practice drawing the diagrams because yes, that will possibly come up in the exams. Good Luck and I hope you find it useful.
