Changes to Computer Based Exams
With effect from the March 2017 exams, the Computer Based Exams for Papers F5 to F9 will contain 110 marks worth of questions and the time allowed will be 3 hours 20 minutes (plus 10 minutes to read the exam instructions).
The extra 10 marks (5 objective test questions) will not contribute to the exam result (the final mark will be out of 100 as always), but the extra questions are there to ensure that the exams are fair and equal for all students. You will not know which these extra questions are – they will be randomly spread around the exam.
The paper-based exams are not affected by this, and nor does it affect the syllabus for the exams.
With effect from July 2017, only Computer Based Exams will be available for Papers F1 to F3 and F4 (ENG and GLO) in the following countries:
Antigua and Barbuda
Paper based exams will still be available for the June 2017 session, and will remain available in other countries.
