This time is to be spent in reading the question paper.
The time given at the head of the 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, must be clearly shown and must be shown on
the same sheet as the rest of the answer. Omission of essential working will result in
loss of marks.
The intended marks for questions or parts of questions have been mentioned after
each of them.
Please refer to the mathematical tables provided by your school textbook.
