about your module.

Dear Student
We are nearing the end of this semester and I would like to commend you for doing well in your
assignments. I hope you will also maintain the same performance in your examination. As you are
aware, in this module you are assessed on Assignment 01, which counts 10% towards your final mark,
and on the examination, which counts 90% towards your final mark. Assignment 2 is optional but
important as it prepares you for the examination. It is therefore a worthwhile exercise to attempt it as
well.

consists of 30 multiple-choice questions and is compulsory. Section B consists of THREE
questions totalling 35 marks each. You must answer any TWO questions in Section B.

The questions in the examination paper will require paragraph-length answers as well as shorter
answers.

length if it totals five marks. In the case of a question that counts 10 marks an answer of half a
page should be sufficient, provided that all the relevant facts are given.
