I understand there is no negative marking on this multiple choice exam. However, I was wondering how they mark the exam when it is a 2 or 4 mark question.
For example, if the question asks you to choose 2 correct statements and it is worth 2 marks, but you choose 1 correct statement and 1 incorrect, would you still obtain 1 mark for the question?
Or would you get 0 marks, because you need to choose both correct statements? I.e. you cannot achieve half marks.

You need to select both correct options to get the marks. No half marks unfortunately.
Here is the link to the specimen paper https://specimen.accaglobal.com/Assignments/LW_ENG/ACCA.html
As you work through this you will see that you must select 2 correct answers to obtain any marks at all. If you put 1 correct and 1 incorrect then no marks at all.
I hope this helps,

Please note that the above applies to section A.
If you do Section B questions which are worth 2 marks- you will see in the specimen paper that you can score 1 mark for 1 correct answer.
Please work through the Specimen Paper as you will see.

Just to confirm, so if you have a section B question which is 4 marks but you only get 2 of the 4 marks right (e.g. its a true or false table) you will still receive 2 marks?

Yes, please see the specimen paper. When you work through the specimen paper and section B questions you will see.
