Multiple choice questions are questions where you will be asked to choose a correct answer from the options given on the question paper. Typically, a multiple choice question will ask you to "Give the letter..." or "Give the number..." that matches your choice, although some multiple choice questions may ask you to tick a box.
Multiple choice questions can appear throughout exam papers, but are asked more often in foundation tier papers than in higher tier.
There are usually four options to choose from in a multiple choice question. You must only choose one of these options. You will not get a mark if you choose more than one option.
