    The first question on the test is multiple choice and contains 10 parts each worth 4 marks. Note, as above, that there will be a change to the number of answer choices for each part from 2014 from 4 possible choices to 5. Marks are given solely for the correct answers, though applicants are encouraged to show any working in the space provided. Questions 2-7 are longer questions, each worth 15 marks, and candidates will need to show their working. Candidates should each attempt 4 questions from 2-7, the selection depending on the degree for which they are applying. Details of precisely which questions you should attempt are given below, in the rubric on the front page of the test and throughout the paper.

    Good luck with it
