The papers, Alternatives A and B compared favourably with of previous years in terms of the standard, demands and structure of the question. The questions were syllabic and the spread of the questions adequately covered the syllabus. The rubrics were clear, the questions were unambiguous. The paper tested the candidates in the following areas:
