DIRECTIONS TO CANDIDATES

1.Report at the Examination Hall at least thirty minutes before the start of the paper. The timetable shows the time actual writing begins but you will be allowed five minutes at the beginning of each paper to complete your particulars on the front cover of the answer booklet. You are not to write anything in the answer booklet during this period. The time allocated for reading through question papers or studying maps, etc., is included in the total time allowed for the papers unless the rubric states otherwise.

2.If you arrive more than 30 minutes late you will be required to give a satisfactory reason to
the Supervisor otherwise you will not be allowed to take the examination. You will not be
allowed to leave the examination room till at least 30 minutes after the start of the
examination.
3.Write your full index number, your name, the title of the paper and the date of examination
clearly on every answer booklet, supplementary sheet, loose maps, graph sheet (paper) and
any other paper which you may use.
4.If an examination paper for which you have not entered is handed to you or if the question
indicates that a map or other materials should also have been given out, but you have not
received them, raise your hand immediately and inform the Supervisor or Invigilator when
he comes to you.
5.Read the general directions that precede the questions very carefully. You will not gain
extra marks if you answer more than the required number of questions. Much time may be
wasted in writing down information not asked for.
6.Write on both sides of the paper unless the instructions on the question paper states
otherwise. Leave a margin at both right-hand and left-hand edges. Leave two lines
between answers where these are sub-sections to the same question. Begin the answer to
each full question on a fresh page. Do not leave blank pages between answers.
7.You must do all rough work in your answer booklet. (You will not be given any paper for
that purpose and, of course, you should not bring any rough work paper with you into the
examination room). When you finish the rough work, cross it out neatly. You will not
lose marks for doing rough work in your answer booklet.
8.Write the number of the question clearly at the beginning of each answer. If the question
has sub-sections show these also clearly. Do not copy the question.
Be careful to use the same system of numbering as that on the question paper.
9.Remember that grammar, punctuation and spelling will be taken into account. Write your
answers with pen. You may use a fountain pen or a good ball-point pen. However, pencils
may be used only for diagrams and for multiple choice tests.
10.Bring mathematical and drawing instruments, mathematical and statistical tables and
mathematical and statistical formulae for Mathematics and Science subjects. If you are
offering Typewriting, you must bring your typewriter to the examination hall.
11.Do not waste so much time on one or two questions to prevent you from answering others
which you will need to answer. No marks are given for irrelevant answers.
12.If you decide to leave the examination room before the end of the period allotted to the
paper, you must not take your question paper away with you; you must submit it together
