INSTRUCTIONS FOR SOLVING PAPER

Answers to this paper must be written on the paper provided separately.


You will not be allowed to write during the first 15 minutes (reading time). This time is to be spent in
reading the question paper.
The time given in the header of this paper is the time allowed for writing the answers.
Attempt all questions from section A and any four questions from section B.
All working, including rough work and diagrams, must be clearly shown and must be done on the same
sheet as the rest of the answer.
Omission of essential working will result in loss of marks.
The intended marks for each question or part of the question are given in brackets [ ].
