GENERAL POINTERS

  1. You must learn definitions off by heart.  Sometimes it helps if you can get someone to test you.  The definition must be exactly the same as in the book - your own words are not usually accurate enough for full marks.
  2. Experiments must also be learnt off by heart.
  3. The exam will last for 2 hours.  There are five sections - A, B, C, D, E.
  4. Section A is made up of 3 questions.  Answer this section on the answer sheet itself.  For each, answer eight of the short questions.  Your answer should fit in the space provided, so keep your answers short and to the point.  Q1 is physics, Q2 is chemistry, Q3 is biology.
  5. Section B, C and D are longer type questions.  Answer these in the booklet provided in the exam.  Each section has two questions.  You only need to do one question though from each section.  Section B is physics, section C is chemistry, section D is biology.
  6. Section E is the applied science section.  You only answer two questions from this section.  Your teacher will tell you which two questions you are to answer.
