The sample assessment material for Unit 1 has been amended to include sample questions assessing Learning Outcome 2 (be able to use geometry and graphs in the context of engineering problems).
In addition, we have amended the front cover on the sample assessment material for the five externally assessed Units (Units 1, 2, 3, 4 and 23). The front covers now reflect the rubric of the live papers.
Key points to note are:
Information given regarding workings and degree of accuracy:
