    This question was attempted and their performance was fair.  In part (a) candidates correctly name the types of tissue in the human body.  In part (b) candidates also correctly named structures that form the urinary system but candidates could not state function each of the structures stated in (b) above.

(c)      Function of structures of the urinary system
         (i)    Function of the kidney

     (ii)   Function of the ureter
           -    conveys urine from the kidney to the bladder

    (iii)   Function of the urinary bladder
