3. If a question has parts, please award marks in the right hand side for each part. Marks awarded to the different parts of the question should then be totaled up and written in the left hand margin and circled.
4. If the question does not have any parts, marks may be awarded in the left-hand margin.
5. If a candidate has attempted any extra question or part, marks obtained in the best question/part should be retained and the other answer should be scored out.
6. In the Marking Scheme, a slash (/) indicates alternative answers; any one such answer is counted as correct.
7. Brackets ( ) indicate optional information; marks may be awarded whether the part in brackets is included or not.
8. Candidates should not be penalized if they do not follow the order of the sections / questions while answering.
9. In questions requiring word limit, no marks are to be deducted for exceeding the word limit.
