General Comments

The Chief Examiner reported that the standard and outlay of the paper compared favourably with those of the previous years. According to the report, the wordings were clear, unambiguous and covered a wide range of topics. All the questions were drawn from within the ambit of the syllabus and they tested the general knowledge of quite a number of concepts and definitions as well as candidates' ability to apply these basic concepts and principles in solving problems. The marking scheme was reportedly appropriately drawn, generous in the allocation of marks to correct points and was flexible enough to adequately cover expected alternatives.
Candidates' performance was reported to be comparable with those of the previous years. The report further stated that a few centres recorded good performance by the candidates as well as reduced rate of examination malpractice. However, most candidates failed in the application of basic concepts and principles. The overall performance of the candidates was generally
reported not to be different from those of the previous years.
