If you think it’s hard ….


Challenge it !!!
1. Show ……working………….. for questions with 2 or more marks.

2. Copy the formula ………correctly………….……

3. Transfer answer from the working space to the answer space …carefully.………..

4. Write only ……one….. answer in the answer space ( except when ask for more)

5. The final answer, if round off is needed, must be at least

………4 sig. fig.……. or as …stated….. by the question.

6. Attempt every question. If you do not know the answer you may still obtained

……B…….. marks for working.

Marking …

 Marks will be given to the correct Answer: …………………….. 


final answer, regardless of the working.
 The final answer is the answer written in the answer space.
- If the answers space is empty, the last working in the
space provided will be taken as the final answer.
 If two non equivalent answers are written in the answer space, the
wrong answer will be chosen as the final answer.
 For an incorrect answer, B mark will be given for the correct
working.
