Does g=9.8, 9.81 or 10? Exam boards seem to have their own g Watch

Alright, so the relevant exams (at least for me) are:
AQA PH2 - 04/06
OCR MEI M1 - 09/06

On the front of M1 papers it tends to say 9.8, so I'm almost certain there's nothing to debate there, but for AQA PH2 there doesn't seem to be a stated value on the front of papers. They tend to use g=9.81 in their calculations for mark schemes, and I've seen that they discard answers using g=10, but I'm not 100% certain what to take g as come the exam.

In short, could someone direct me to somewhere official that states what to take g as for the AQA PH2 exam?
