About the exam
There are two assessable elements:
Each element will be worth approximately 50% of the marks.
There are two papers at each level, one where a calculator may not be used and one where a calculator may be used, and each paper will assess both KU and RE.
Papers at each level will cover the problem-solving processes:
Papers will consist of a mixture of short-response questions and extended-response questions, some of which will involve sustained thinking.
Most questions will assess one element only but some will assess both elements, with, for example, KU being assessed in the early part(s) and RE being assessed in the later part(s).
Where appropriate, questions will be set in context.
Marks will be allocated to each question and a total mark obtained for each element.
