There will be several kinds of tests at the National Brain Bee, including multiple-choice questions, oral questions requiring one word or one phrase answers and histology. Histology will have real histology slides from the Human Neuroanatomy Lab in Health Sciences or have pictures of typical specimens (normal and abnormal) shown to the students for identification. It will be much like the Kingston local brain bee.
