Exam paper structure
November 14, 2010 09:14PM
Does any body know what the exam paper structure is. I know 103 says its a 3 hour 100 marks of which 50 is multiple choice which is incorrect.

I know its gonna be a 2 hour paper, but how many marks and how many multiple choice?

As far as I am aware the exam is 2 hours, 100 marks, 50 of those marks coming from 25 2 mark questions.
What makes you believe otherwise?

Well for starters both the 2009 and Jan/Feb 2010 papers consisted of 70 marks.

The exam tut also states it is 3hours, but there is only a 2hour session allocated on the exam roster. But hey, that is UNISA for you, quality education at it's best! For what it might be worth though, I also think it's going to be 2hours 100marks 50 multiple choice. It is more than enough time.

According to the exam leter its a 100 marks paper and 50 of those marks will be 25 questions counting 2 marks each
This is the last exam for my degree ..and I tell you I have not stressed so much about an exam as this one, it is just too many similar but slighty different facts
The work is easy to understand but writing the details in an answer is not that easy .. maybe in my own words smile
The last assignment's questions came straight out of the textbook (sections after each chapter) and those are not easy questions
My gut feel is that they going to use the same questions as in the textbook .. and you cannot find the offical answer anywhere!!
Will work through the past exam papers tomorrow as well as assignment 3
Good luck with the exams!
