INSTRUCTIONS TO CANDIDATES
(Please read carefully before you begin your examination.)
This is a closed book exam.

Individual work. There are 15 multiple choices questions (OMR); the questions are of equal value;
wrong questions and non attempted questions are marked 0. Answers must be entered on the Mul-
tiple Choice Answer Sheet as described on the next page.

This examination is worth 20 % of the total marks for this module.

Candidates may use a scientific calculator but programmable calculators are not allowed.

Material Allowed:
Mathematics Formula Sheet (separate, on blue paper)

PLEASE NOTE: You should only answer the number of questions required above. If you answer
more than this, your answers will be marked in the order they appear in your answer sheets, up to
and including the required number. Any additional answers will not be marked. Please check your
work to ensure you have answered the correct number of questions and they are clearly numbered.
You must abide by the universities regulations on academic misconduct.
• Please enter your Student ID number clearly using the boxes for
numbers and the circles to represent this number in the grid, this
should be an 8 digit number (unless you have a pre-printed OMR
examination form as this information will already be shown).
• Do not write anywhere on the paper unless indicated to do so.
• Do not tick or cross the response circles (unless you wish to change
your answer), you must fill them in.
