How to answer the exam questions

For each question, remember to show all your working, as marks will be allocated for both working and answers.

Press enter, or use the “insert new line” option below the maths editor when you need more space.

When you’ve finished the question, click the blue “next question” button to move to the next question.

If you run out of time, the exam will be submitted automatically. If you finish the exam before the time limit expires and are happy with your answers, go to the summary page and click the red “submit exam” button.
