INSTRUCTION TO SUPERVISORS, TEACHERS AND CANDIDATES
Supervisors are asked to take all necessary steps to ensure that the following instructions are brought to the notice of the
Teachers and Candidates under examination.
Teachers are advised to ensure that their students are carefully drilled on how to carry out the instructions given below and that candidates are aware of the penalties for irregularities or misconduct. Candidates are required to follow these Instructions carefully.
GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS TO CANDIDATES
- Be at your seat in the Examination Room five minutes before the time fixed for the examination in the various papers.
- First morning sessions will normally start at 8.00 a.m. and the 2nd morning sessions will start at 11.30 a.m.
- A candidate who arrives late will be required to give a satisfactory reason to the supervisor. Except in exceptional circumstances, a paper will not be given to any candidate who is more than half an hour late. Absolute punctuality is essential for certain papers, e.g. Shorthand.
- If an examination paper for which you are not registered for is handed to you, or if the questions indicate that a map or other material should also have been given out, speak to the supervisor at once.
- Attend carefully to any general directions that may be given at the head of a paper, e.g. directions limiting the number of questions that should be answered.
- Write your name, your index number as well as the name of the paper on the first page of each answer book or sheet of each set of papers you use. Thereafter, your index number must be written in clear figures in the space provided on every sheet or page of answer book.
- Write on both sides of the paper, but do not use the margins. Begin the answer to each separate part of a question on a fresh line.
- Write the number of the question clearly in the left-hand margin at the beginning of each answer. Do not copy the question. Be careful to use the same system of numbering as appears in the question paper. Leave a blank line after the answer to each question.
- Write your answers with black or blue ink. You may use a fountain pen or ball point pen. Pencils should only be used for diagrams. Remember that handwriting and spelling will be taken into account. Bring mathematical and drawing instruments for subjects for which they will be needed.
- Do not write so much upon one or two questions as to leave yourself no time to answer others, which you are able to answer.
- As soon as notice is given to stop, arrange your answer book and sheets in the correct order (this is normally the order in which you answered the questions). Make sure that they all have your index number written upon them. Fasten them together at the left-hand corner and hand them unfolded to the supervisor.
- Withdrawal from the examination should have been notified to the Council before any papers of the examination are taken.
