Completing the exam
At your seat, you receive:
- a question booklet
- answer booklets (1 for each question)
When instructed, write your name, candidate number and exam city on all materials.
Write your responses neatly using black or blue ballpoint pen only.
You must use a separate booklet for each question. If you run out of space, ask an invigilator for an additional booklet to continue your response.
If you use more than 1 answer booklet for a question, you must indicate this on the front of each answer booklet (for example, 1 of 2 and 2 of 2).
Where a question asks for 4 answers and you provide 5, only the top 4 responses will be marked (unless clearly crossed out). Any extra responses will be ignored whether they are correct or not.
Leaving the exam room
Don't leave the exam room without an invigilator’s approval. If you need the toilet, an invigilator will escort you. If you want to leave before the end of the exam, stay seated and raise your hand. An invigilator will check your materials and release you.
You cannot leave in the first 30 minutes or last 10 minutes of the exam.
On completion of the exam, your exam booklet and answer booklets will be collected before you can leave.
The content of all documents is confidential and cannot be removed from the exam room. You’re not permitted to reproduce or distribute exam materials at any time or in any way. Doing so is a breach of the Academic Integrity in Training Process.
